Strategic Enterprise Decision Making
In Week 6, you reflected on the process and outcomes associated with your pilot, and you considered how you would design a large-scale strategic plan, based on your reflection, to foster continuous improvement. As indicated previously, you will need to obtain stakeholder alignment and buy-in for your initiative to be successful. A substantial component of a strategic plan pertains to organizational alignment, which means that you need to align the organizational strategy to your initiative. Revisiting the scoring and prioritization templates from Week 1 would be helpful here. Also, you need to communicate your plan in a way that resonates with all of your stakeholders.
Your strategic plan should include the why, who, how, and when. You should begin with a statement about why this is important with a particular focus on how your initiative aligns with the larger organizational strategy. You should articulate the value proposition and discuss the feasibility of the initiative; the focus here should be on the outcomes of interest or the key performance indicators. Next, you should discuss the process, which should pertain to who, how, and when. A brief roadmap with a timeline and milestones should be included. Be sure to use the results that you obtained from your pilot to support your plan.
