Abstract:
This article examines controversy in strategic planning and reveals the classification and grouping of the schools of thought on strategy formulation and its different dimensions. In this context, Mintzberg (1991) considers the existence of two dimensions, namely, prescriptive and descriptive. However, in the literature review on strategy carried out for this article, a new strategy dimension was considered and designated integrative. The integrative dimension incorporates one of the descriptive schools, namely, the configuration school due to its unifying perspective and eclectic nature.

Keywords: Strategic Planning, Prescriptive Dimension, Descriptive Dimension, Integrative Dimension
