One of the most difficult aspects of business planning is moving from strategic thinking to action. This course describes activities that help coordinate the implementation of business plans, including developing action plans, determining how the implementation should be measured and monitored, as well as how to assess outcomes. It details how to use an action planning process to facilitate business plan implementation. This process entails steps such as clarifying the outcomes you want, listing the actions necessary to achieve those outcomes, assigning responsibilities, and determining resources needed. Finally, the course explains how to develop a reporting and monitoring structure in order to help ensure a more streamlined implementation process.
