Defining Strategic Initiatives
You need to be specific about what you need to implement
You need an objective for each CSF to guide the actions.
Strategic Objectives should be directional but sufficiently tangible to align specific initiatives against them.
The objectives should relate directly to the period of the CSF's by articulating how the gap will be contained, closed or eliminated.
Strategic initiatives define precisely what is to be done. These are major activities that may require resources across divisional boundaries and have full executive attention.
Tactics will be those sub-activities within the strategic initiative that have to be implemented to ensure that the major initiatives are done thoroughly, completely and according to plan.
In this section, you will learn how to distinguish between strategic initiatives and tactics and what implementation details you will need.
