You have done the hard work of crafting a strategic plan for your business. Now you are expected to make it happen, as a plan comes alive only in the implementation. If you want to avoid a failure of implementation, never let your plan be ignored. Otherwise, you risk to find yourself in a situation when you have a map to your destination, but never get in your car to drive.

How to make sure your plan gets implemented? It is definitely not a hope or a magic. There are a few reasonable steps that will guide you through the progress in executing a strategy

Communicate your plan

To make sure your company is moving towards the main objective, communicate your plan to everybody concerned. Clear goals are important to motivate the team, and to achieve better results. Unfortunately, many executives tend to skip this step that is usually followed by the confusion and ineffectiveness of the whole team.

Share your beautiful roadmaps with colleagues, and build great products together.

Allocate resources

As your next step, you should establish the accountability. Assign responsible persons for executing the goal or the goals, as the case may be, and determine how often they will provide a feedback on the work-related issues. These actions will show you as a leader who is serious about the plan, and will help encourage employees to accomplish their assigned tasks.

Monitor the progress

Continually monitor the status of your strategic goals, including the overall performance of the team, the progress towards each milestone, and other measures that you have set in your plan. Comprehensive understanding of the current situation allows you to detect possible issues, and take prompt actions before it is too late.

Update your plan
