Strategic planning and decision-making are crucial activities in any organization. Enormous efforts should be undertaken to find the best solutions to different issues, challenges, and problems we face in the environment, which becomes more turbulent every day. This Special Issue is focused on applying the decision-making (DM) methods (both multi-criteria DM methods and methods for decision-making under uncertainty and risk) in strategic management in the organizations (enterprises, education institutions, health institutions, administrative or public institutions, local government units, and NGOs). The applications can be related to any of the main phases of strategic planning: problem identification, decision-making, implementation and monitoring of strategic decisions, and evaluation of strategic decisions. Novel approaches, i.e., new DM methods or currently known methods upgraded or adjusted to the DM problem needs, are especially welcome. Additionally, this section covers applying data mining techniques and big data analytics for strategic planning and decision-making purposes.
This Special Issue provides a platform for researchers from academia and industry to present their novel and unpublished work in the domain of strategic planning and decision-making. This will help foster future research in strategic planning and decision-making and its related fields and, consequently, support decision-makers to make good responses to the challenges they face.
