Your Corporate Plan is important, but so are your Business Plans!
Divisional and Branch level Business Plans are not currently a regulatory requirement within the Commonwealth, but this does not mean that they are not important. Such plans are critical to tell an organisations complete and sound performance story. While Corporate Plans are supposed to cover performance measurement from the strategic outcome level, this is often miles away from the work of each branch and team. Ascertaining how an individual or team’s work and performance links to the Corporate Plan requires some serious mental gymnastics. Business Plans are designed to bridge this divide, helping teams and individual staff members to establish and understand ‘where do I fit (with my work) into the picture’.
