What if a plan is not working?
There are a number of reasons why strategic plans fail to do what they are meant to do.
Plans will not work if:
- Aims are unrealistic;
- Objectives are not clearly defined;
- Actions are not specific;
- The plan is not used as a working document;
- The plan is not monitored and reviewed;
- There are no systems in place to track actions and ensure follow up;
- Staff members are not involved in the planning process.
