Objective (s): Successful implementation of strategic planning improves performance of organizations and enhances the accountability of employees and managers. This study aimed to examine the success of strategic planning implementation in hospitals in Tehran province, Iran.
Methods: This study was performed in 93 hospitals in Tehran in 2016. Data were collected using a valid and reliable questionnaire covering nine dimensions of organizational issues including leadership and management, planning, organizational learning, organizational culture, employee management, customer management, resource management, process management, and organizational performance. The data were analyzed by statistical tests using the SPSS software
Results: Strategic planning implementation was moderately successful in hospitals (score of 2.84 out of 5). The most and least success were observed for planning and employee management dimensions respectively. Process management, organizational culture and customer management constructs had the most effect on the success of strategic plans. Significant statistical correlation was also observed between strategic planning implementation and managers' commitment (p= 0.0001, r= 0.406), employees’ involvement (p= 0.0001, r= 0.338), and physicians’ participation (p= 0.001, r= 0.363).
Conclusion: Using an appropriate model of strategic planning, creating participative, collaborative and creative organizational culture, strong management and leadership, providing required resources and training and empowerment of staff are necessary for successful implementation of strategic planning in hospitals.
