strategic gap analysis

A method of examining a business strategy and establishing whether or not it will meet a desired objective. If a failure to achieve this objective is predicted, there is a performance gap between the hoped-for and expected states. This gap can be closed by means of a modified strategy, which will need to be formulated.
