  • Faced with aging plants and an increasingly complex operating environment, management at the Snowy Mountains Hydro-electric Authority in southeast Australia turned to strategic planning in 1987. Today`s strategic planning is increasingly driving all aspects of operations, maintenance, and development. And it has become more than a valuable management tool-it is becoming a way of life. It has given management more control over prioritizing, timing, and optimizing the scope of maintenance, life extension, and improvement of its hydroelectric stations and associated works. This article reviews the specific process utilized by this organization.
