Part of successfully implementing a strategic plan is involving everyone in the organization in the plan. You work as an admission coordinator for an assisted living facility that just enacted its 5-year strategic plan. However, no one has communicated any of the components of the plan to any departments, including yours. Instead, management has chosen to include only senior-level management.
- What do you think of this implementation approach?
- Do you think it will be an effective strategy? Why or why not?
- What would you do differently to ensure the successful implementation of the assisted living facility’s strategic plan? Direct your comments specifically to an assisted living facility’s characteristics and how a strategic plan might be implemented in such an organization.
