Step 5: Ensure You Have the Right Resources

During the first four videos of the series, Aimee and Taylor discussed the process of developing and implementing a strategic plan. But none of this is possible without an excellent team.

In the second video, they discussed the teams needed to create the vision. You can also leverage these teams for the execution! You should consult with your employees about the goals to ensure you get broad feedback. You also may want to consider outside help (such as consultants) or at least ensure a team member feels responsible for the plan.

Second, you need adequate funding and corporate support. Having a solid plan in place will make it easier to drive this support.
