Strategic and Tactical Planning for Business Development

HomeSales Management Course List

The plan starts with vision, mission and guiding principles. From the mission you derive your critical success factors. From the critical success factors, the strategies, tactics and measurements can be defined. From the tactics and measurements you write the goals with action plans and resource needs.

The strategies and tactics found in your critical success factors cascade to others to carry out. In this way, missions are defined. From these missions, the core objectives and goals can be defined and action plans written.
