Is Strategic Planning Passé?

Is strategic planning in the traditional sense passé? It may very well be given the rapidly changing environment organizations face especially in technology including social media and the collapsing financial world.
Maybe one should be planning for only 1 year, assessing and revising the corporation's strategies. The rigid structure of strategic planning may need a new model.

Focus on Objectives Rather Than Detailled Action Plan

Perhaps we spend too much time to build a detailed action plan while doing the strategic plan. Models we had were directing us to do so.
We should concentrate on establishing general objectives for 2-3 years.
Then focus annually on building a yearly action plan based on those objectives giving us the opportunity to review changes in both external and internal environments.
