Key Success Measures/Goals
First Year Action Plans
To fully develop your Key Success Measures matrix, fill out the following ―To Do‖ list so KSMs
are finalized. Often it takes most of the first year of implementation to finalize some KSMs and
to get comfortable with their practical use. For this reason, we do not recommend getting final
approval on KSM targets until then. In the final strategic planning document, include this action
plan with KSM areas only.

Marketing and Sales Core Strategies
―Samples‖
Our core strategies are the primary means and methods we will use to move
[Marketing and Sales Department name] from today to our vision for the year [Target year]
Marketing and Sales Core Strategies are the primary ways we ―close the gap‖ between today and our
desired Future Vision. Thus, they are also the ―glue‖ and ―organizing framework‖ for all parts of the
organization. They replace the obsolete concept of separate department goals. These are those goals;
the same for each department.
