Initiative Planning & Management

Initiative Planning & Management


Strategic and tactical plans are primarily concerned with making changes to the organization’s current business model, i.e. the way in which departments work together in order to meet corporate goals. The strategic planning process determines what adjustments need to be made and in what timescales. these will almost certainly be accomplished via specific initiatives (also known as projects) that will consume resources in the form of money, people and maybe assets.

To decide on what initiatives can be afforded, details will need to be collected on what the initiative is intended to achieve, the workload that will be required, any outputs that can be measured, as well as a detailed resources / responsibilities plan.

It is likely that during the strategic planning process, as well as throughout the year, many initiatives will be proposed, but not all can be afforded. to choose which ones provide the best outcomes for a given investment will require them to be evaluated singly and in combinations, as well as in moving start dates of particular initiatives back and forward in time.

Once chosen, monitoring execution requires selected initiatives to be tracked for their current and future resource consumption and their overall impact on the organization’s business model.

initiative planning recognises that it is the impact of specific actions that can help manage a change to the organic growth of an organization. initiatives are in effect a project that details:

• an action to be performed.

• the department(s) involved in its delivery.

• the person responsible for overall delivery.

• the reason(s) why they are being performed and the measure of success.

• the timescale in which it is to be actioned along with defined start /end dates.

• milestones through which the status of implementation can be monitored.

• resources that will be required.
