STRATEGIC PLAN - Major Steps, Develop a Detailed Work Plan

Within the first two to three planning meetings, the planning group develops a detailed work plan to serve as a comprehensive blue print for conducting the strategic planning effort. The work plan should identify the following:

  • each major strategic planning step
  • specific activities required for each step
  • information requirements
  • assignment of individual responsibilities
  • major milestones and schedule
  • resource requirements
  • design of strategic planning document and other supporting documentation

    
But..you also need market & industry data from here:
*
Industry Intelligence  
*
Competitive Analysis  
*
Market Research


 

The group uses then uses this work plan to plan and monitor the activities and the progress of individual meetings and the overall strategic planning process.

 

 

 

 

 

 

A framework to aid in the development of the work plan is shown below:

 

 

Notwithstanding what was previously described for the work plan in the beginning of this page, the chart above can be used to drive an even more tactical perspective. A more tactical work plan outlines in greater specific detail how a project will be conducted, who will work on which part, and when and in what order each part will be accomplished. Most tactical work plans include the following elements:

  • A breakdown of the strategic plan action steps into individual projects
  • A short description of each project's objective
  • A list of personnel participating in the project
  • A breakdown of the project into specific tasks, with indications of which tasks are dependent upon the completion of others
  • A schedule indicating when each task will be started and when it will be completed and who will perform it
  • A budget
