Strategic Planning in The Learning Function “Should Be” Driven By the Business

Don’t wrongly start at the right – start right at the left.

Strategy Drives Tactics

Your Strategy and Tactics should be driven by the Strategies and Tactical Plans of your Stakeholders.

The first thing to do – is to get aligned with your Stakeholders – and assess how well you are meeting their current needs – and how well you are prepared to meet their mid-term and long-term needs.

Then you prepare your Strategic Plans – and eventually you get into the details such as where to focus priority-wise, how to staff using in-sourcing and out-sourcing resources, which deployment mechanisms make the most business sense, etc., etc.

After you understand your Enterprise’s needs. Not to start. Otherwise you are literally putting the cart before the horse – so to speak.
