Business managers are often so preoccupied with immediate issues that
they lose sight of their ultimate objectives. That's why a business
review or preparation of a strategic plan is a virtual necessity. This
may not be a recipe for success, but without it a business is much more

to accomplish your mission - Goals are general statements
what you need to accomplish to meet your purpose, or mission, and
address major issues facing the organization.

strategy - These are the specific activities that each major
function (for example, department, etc.) must undertake to ensure it’s

met or not. Ideally, the top management develops specific committees
that each have a work plan, or set of objectives.
- Monitor and update the plan - Planners
regularly reflect on the extent to which the goals are being met and
whether action plans are being implemented. Perhaps the most important
indicator of success of the organization is positive feedback from the
