Now you are ready with the guiding torch for your organization i. e. the strategic plan. The key requirements and associated resources and implications are well understood and based on them the bible has been prepared. Now all that you need is actual implementation of this laborious theoretical preparation.
This implementation is in fact another landmark where various organizations tend to falter. The extensive research and resources used up for the drafting of strategic plans often make organizations believe that whatever they have understood and devised is the optimum and therefore requires no second thoughts. However, what has been ignored is the fact that plans can be tested only if they meet actual usage. Only planning or theoretical application cannot be guarantee complete success. Actual implementation yields the true picture.
This stage of implementation often results in a consequence wherein it is required to monitor and evaluate the implemented plans to understand if they are moving the desired direction. But, many experienced and learned thinkers tend to falter here. They believe that what ever has been devised is the best. Yet, it must be understood that what is great for one might be average for others. Therefore, there could be loopholes. Hence, it is suggested to keep a scope of change based upon extensive monitoring and subsequent evaluation based upon inputs and output. Any implementer must not be closed for these changes. Keep a scope for changes!
