Shorten the Time Window of Strategic Plans
Dr Robin C Hesler, Canada
In strategic planning there needs to be both short and long term strategies
, which are the major paths to reach the goals or end states of the plan.
I agree that there also need to be short term strategies and these should be multiple in that they are steps or stages of the main, long term strategies.
They should be based on decision points
. When a decision point is met, one may have to take a different short term strategy/path.
This means setting up indicators
so one can tell if things are changing. If that is in place one is in a position to evaluate each strategy.
