Initiating the strategic plan

The ability to initiate the strategic plan is the most difficult operational task because you need to be able to convey information to all levels of management from the tippy top to the very bottom.  Taylor also states that other roadblocks that effect implementation include a lack of information on the external environment and conflicts regarding who is responsible for the steps. It is best to assign tasks to individuals and not groups to illuminate finger pointing and to be more direct and accountable.
It is imperative for strategic planning to include all levels of managers and employees.  You can’t be the highest man with a secret or else the plan doesn’t convey and things will fall apart.  Thompson informs us that the larger and more diverse the operations of an enterprise, the more points of strategic initiative it has and the more levels of management that have a significant strategy-making role.
