The macro level goals become the departmental and individual strategies and each initiative will include the following: description, what it will deliver and by when, who the owner is, and the metrics to track performance.
The steps we will take are:
Align: Align you and your staff’s initiatives to the departmental goals.

The objective is to ensure the total department knows and understands their expectations.

SWOT Analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats)
SWOT analysis is our strategic planning method used to evaluate the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats involved in your business or a project within your business. This analysis involves specifying the objective of the project or business goal and identifying the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable to achieve that objective.
A SWOT analysis must first start with defining a desired end state or objective and serves as part of our strategic planning model.
Identification of SWOTs is essential because subsequent steps in the process of planning for achievement of the selected objective may be derived from the SWOTs.
Strengths: internal characteristics of the organization/facility or team that give it an advantage over others in the industry.
Weaknesses: internal characteristics that place the organization/facility or team at a disadvantage relative to others in the industry.
Opportunities: external chances to make greater improvements in the environment.
Threats: external elements in the environment that could cause trouble for the organization/facility or team.
Change management facilitates the readiness and alignment of the organization affected by change and all about the process of helping stakeholders move from the current state to the future state.
