This happens because economic growth has major effect in increasing numbers of middle-class citizen who plays an important role as the main target of skin-care clinic business.

Their sales has reached 2,000 patients per month and with around 100 employees on their rank shows that this business has developed significantly since first established in 1996.However other than benefits, growth can also cause problems that company should anticipate and address properly. Unfortunately, Clinic Livia still have difficulty in managing problems that was caused by their growth. To address this situation, thorough analysis is necessary to find the root-cause and subsequently build the solution.The analysis process found that main problem of Clinic Livia was identified as lack of good strategic planning.
