Put your Strategic Plan into Action - Operational Planning
A strategic plan identifies your high level goals - an operational plan outlines how your team will achieve those goals.
Operational Planning: Identify and action the day-to-day tasks required to fulfill your Strategic Plan
Your strategic plan sets direction for your organization over a 3-5 year period, identifying high level strategies to pursue so you can achieve your mission. It does not provide day-to-day tasks or activies involved in running your organization - that’s your operational plan. The purpose of the operational plan is to provide staff with a clear picture of their responsibilities. It outlines what strategies and tasks must be done; who is responsible for each task; when the tasks much be completed; and what financial or other resources are required.
