  7. 7.

  8. 8. Strategies & Tactics I A strategy is the result of incisive thinking about “the situation” A strategy must be unique, not only for your organization, but also for the industry in which you operate A strategy may be general, but it must be customer-focused and creative

  14. 14. Executive Summary I Length should be two pages, but no more than five Content should summarize key points Don’t include supporting details Conclusions should be concise and clear

  16. 16. Conclusion Every organization needs a strategic plan, but some can’t develop one, for various reasons: lack of time, lack of personnel, lack of knowledge. In this case, the best solution is to work with an individual or agency that has the capability of building one for you.
