The Problem is that Strategic plans often fail due to lack of rigor, clarity, accountability, or transparency.
The Solution is to ensure strategic plans are understood and incorporated into all levels of the organization in a coordinated way. Communicating strategy to everyone in the organization is critical. All questions should be answered and everyone should understand their role.
There will be one to three stated objectives. There will be one to three methods or tactics being used to achieve each objective. There will be three to seven overarching action items associated with each method or tactic. There is an imposed limit to the number of objectives, tactics and action items built into the strategy.
