A Continuous Improvement Strategy Plan
A Continuous Improvement Strategy Plan is a Business Plan on a page. It has 3 parts that lead you to develop and communicate a strategic plan within your organisation:
- Business Purpose Statement
This is your ‘Why’ Statement and clearly states the purpose of your business and why it exists.
- Business Vision Statement
A vision statement describes your big dream of where your company will be in the future. It’s also your
personal reflection of what it will take from you and give to you. It is important to have a vision statement because it gives you and your team ongoing motivation and inspiration to work on your business. It also influences all decision-making and strategic planning. What will your business have accomplished in the next 3 years? If you were a reporter writing about your business’ success what would you be saying?
- Strategic Goals
Your Strategic Goals should follow the SMART method which will guide you towards achieving your
vision statement. If you cannot link your goal to the vision then it is better to not add it to your strategy as it is important that you and your team are solely focused on achieving your vision whilst inspired by your purpose.
To make sure your goals are clear and reachable, each one should be:
- Specific (simple, sensible, significant).
- Measurable (meaningful, motivating).
- Achievable (agreed, attainable).
- Relevant (reasonable, realistic and resourced, results-based).
- Time-bound (time-based, time-limited, time/cost limited, timely, time-sensitive).
