Implementing strategy

Small drops maketh an ocean. This is very true when it comes to the strategy adopted to any firm. Each and every step, decision, policy has a measurable impact on how the firm’s strategy is going to get effected. In such a scenario, managers should be extremely cautious about what they are doing and how they are doing as they must keep the strategic objective as a guideline or beacon to guide their path towards it. Strategy adopted are critical as they affect the lifeline of the society and in many ways depict the choices made by their suppliers, customers and management.

Planning on paper is very easy, implementing it is not as easy, and succeeding while doing it is tough. So it is very important to have a strategic plan, draw up a strategy, objectives, goals and a solid implementation strategy. Inclusion of all the plans and breaking down them to small modules, assigning time lines for each task, appointing and delegating each module to responsible managers is very important. This would ensure that the progress is monitored and how it would affect the final objective.

Don't know how to do all this? Take a notepad, pencil and observe your mom working in the kitchen :)
