ABSTRACT

Strategic planning is the process of selecting ways and means to achieve goals. Therefore, the process of creating and selecting various strategic alternatives takes up a key step in strategic planning. The organization, procedures, and methods of strategic planning should be developed to accurately recognize threats, explore and analyze strategic alternatives, select strategies and perform a series of processes that combine organizational capabilities. The U.S. "Project Solarium" was run by the Eisenhower administration in the early Cold War to explore strategic alternatives against the Soviet Union. It is regarded as the most successful strategic planning process in history. Strategic alternatives were created and selected through the guidance by the president as the chief manager, the operation of Dolittle Panel for the Strategic Planning Committee, and the dynamic activities of the three teams that were strategic planning teams. The result was embodied as a "New Look policy" and established as a strategy to counter the Soviet Union throughout the Cold War.
