Creating an Inspiring Vision: What is the strategic plan to achieve it?
Sometimes in life, the simplest things can be the most difficult. This is often the case with creating your organization’s vision.
Vision answers: “Where are you going?”
One must answer this question before any effective strategic plan can proceed. This is important because it sets the stage for leadership to chart a new direction or future view of the organization. A leader needs to articulate the vision and build a strategic plan to make the vision become a reality.
Based on my experience, your vision should:
- Set standards of excellent
- Inspire enthusiasm
- Encourage commitment
- Be well-articulated and easily understood
