How to Draft
The Mission Vision
Strategy & Objectives
Action Plans with
Programs and coordination
section describes the schedule for the action plans and coordination needed. If you control
all the resources needed, you do not need to discuss coordination issues. If the strategy involves makes departments, division, etc., then you need to demonstrate that their leaders are ready to commit their resources.
I use the word programs to mean several actions plans that support the
same objective. Frequently, these supporting plans are developed at the
department or business unit level. In the program section, you would
summarize the action plans objective, timing, cost and resources required
impact. In an appendix, you could include the entire action plan.
In my experience, most complex plans fail when supporting plans are
not completed in the correct sequence. The primary reason is the action
plan owner expects help from another department, but the folks are not
available as promised. In this section, you explain the critical path
and the sharing of resources. If you will work with outside firms or
consultants, then here you explain their commitments.
