The successful implementation of a strategic plan requires effective communication and a thorough understanding of not only the role of the organization within the greater community, but the role of leadership within the organization. By effectively engaging stakeholders and understanding the philosophy of strategic management, leaders can mitigate challenges and hurdles that face those directing change.
This assignment provides an opportunity for you to create an executive-level presentation explaining how SMART objectives underlying each organizational strategy can help the organization successfully implement its strategic plan. Then, after sharing the key performance indicators you developed off the strategic plan, you will use this ‘balanced scorecard’ to make recommendations to revise the three directional strategies you developed in Unit 7.
By successfully completing this assignment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the following course competencies and assignment criteria:
In your weekly one-on-one meeting your boss congratulates you on the comprehensive and well-researched work you have done to date. The CEO has been working with the rest of the organization’s leadership team to adopt the overarching strategies for the organization that your boss recommended. However, your boss and CEO are seeking clarification on how to translate these strategies into meaningful benchmarks, or performance measures. They want to know how the organization will measure progress in following these strategies. In previous discussions with your boss, you have been describing the SMART methodology for writing objectives that support the overarching strategies. She has asked you to share the SMART objectives you have written for each strategy with the CEO in a brief presentation.
You are ready to begin creating your presentation and the slides that you will use to support your key points and conclusions. Your boss reminds you that the CEO expects a brief, substantive, and concise presentation. You will be lucky to get 15 minutes of the CEO’s time. Consequently, she suggests that you include no more than 10–12 slides, or you will run out of time and cautions you about not creating a “death by PowerPoint” experience for the CEO. You already know from experience that your organization expects professional presentations that adhere to the organization’s branding standards.
Create an executive-level presentation, with voiceover, of the SMART objectives that correspond to the organization’s main strategies, associated performance indicators and metrics, and strategic plan recommendations.
Practice your presentation until you are satisfied with it, staying as close as possible to the limited time allotted. Remember that the audience is your organization’s CEO. All the work you have done so far in this course has prepared you for this briefing, but you are ready.
The requirements, outlined below, correspond to the grading criteria in the Strategic Plan Objectives and Balanced Scorecard Scoring Guide, so be sure to address each point. Read the performance-level descriptions for each criterion to see how your work will be assessed.
Your presentation should consist of 10–12 slides and be 10–15 minutes in length. Use the notes portion of each slide to write your script (the notes section is required).
You may use the structure below as a guide for organizing and timing your presentation. You do not need to place your slides in this specific order.
Include all relevant supporting details, such as data, charts, and graphs, as an addendum to the presentation. Indicate the slide associated with the relevant data set. In addition, include all relevant data and narrative in the notes section of each slide.
Cite a minimum of six references to current scholarly and authoritative sources to support your presentation. Format your citations and references according to APA style and formatting guidelines.
Proofread your slides and addendum, before you submit them, to minimize errors that could distract readers and make it more difficult for them to focus on the substance of your presentation.
