Strategic plans cannot be monolithic and static documents.

"One key challenge we come across time and time again is the non-alignment of an organisation's strategic plan with the work its people are doing. Or worse, the people are doing work aligned to the strategic plan, which they know is the wrong type of work but they are being measured against it so feel they have no choice.

In both scenarios and from our experience, we have found strategic plans cannot be monolithic and static documents. For a strategic plan to continue to represent an organisation's needs it must be adaptable and be developed with delivery in mind."
