Executing your strategic plan isn’t just a case of you doing all the work. You’re the visionary of the business, the savvy female business owner with big dreams. 

Ain’t nobody got time for that!

And so you need a team of people and resources to help you execute your strategic plan to drive your business forward in the right direction for you.

In fact, once you have set your strategic plan, it is up to your “strategic execution team” to make sure it is implemented.

Why is having a strategic execution team important?

There’s a balance when it comes to planning and strategic execution which ensures your team is working at full capacity. Involving your team, or even your contractors, with your strategic planning and especially the execution of it will help you achieve your big vision.

Why? Because your team will know what tasks they are responsible for, how they should do their work, and why they are doing it so everything they do for you contributes to your big picture; the one you are working hard to achieve.

Without good planning, your team will simply do the work, get it done, and not give much thought to the overall big vision of the business.

Who should be involved with your strategic plan?

Strategic planning starts at the top of your business – with you. The strategic planning process should involve the management team of your business, key employees or contractors, and anyone else who can actively contribute to the execution of your plan.

One of the often overlooked resources in your “execution team” is actually the technology you will use to implement your plan. This can be a big help for your team of people and can also save much time and money.

Who do you need onboard?

Project manager

Aside from you as the leader, the project manager is at the top of the “strategic execution team”. Your project manager is responsible for the day-to-day running of the project and managing the project in its entirety. There are six aspects that they need to be across, including scope, schedule, finance, risk, quality and resources.

In an online business

You will have a project manager or OBM (online business manager).

In a physical business

It will be an operational director or project manager (similar concept that may have a different name).

People and contractors 

The strategic execution process should always involve your employees, contractors or anyone else important in your business. If your employees are involved in the day-to-day operations and running of your business, they should be included. 

Your employees and team can help you in ways you can never imagine, for example, they can provide different views of the business, can share their thoughts on certain situations that may not be working and give ideas on how to improve facets of your business. 

This is imperative to your projects but also in the future planning. 

Technology

The right technology helps you improve strategic execution by saving time and making the implementation easier. You can automate tasks, use programs to alert team members of tasks, set goals and deadlines, and track the entire process.
