Strategic Plans Must be Used and Executed!
I know an organization were top management hired a consultant to design strategic plans for all departments. As such, SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, time bound) plans were drafted.
But whenever the time elapsed the strategic plan should be implemented, records would be adjusted by adding more years within which to implement the plan.
At the end, little was achieved.
Strategic planning is a tool for achieving organizational goals. CEOs need to make use of the tool and ensure execution of the strategy
for the better.
