Is Your Strategic Plan Sitting in the Top Drawer?

Here are 12 reasons why strategic plans fail:

  • Not understanding the environment
  • Partial or minimal commitment
  • Too much focus and activity on the day-to-day
  • Not having the right people involved
  • Writing the plan and putting it in the top drawer
  • Unwillingness or inability to change
  • Having the wrong people in leadership positions
  • Ignoring marketplace reality, facts, and assumptions.
  • No accountability or follow through
  • No clear execution plan
  • Unrealistic goals
  • Lack of investment or resources.

And that’s not all of them! By avoiding these and other pitfalls, you can create an effective planning process, build a realistic business direction for the future, and greatly improve the chances for successful implementation of your strategy.
