Chapter 14. Master Planning > Strategic Planning

Strategic Planning

What kind of planning are we talking about? Although a team charter is a needed element, its long-term view isn’t enough. What’s missing from most teams’ repertoires, as the following table shows, is a master plan that links purposes at the top with day-to-day activities at the bottom. A master plan keeps teams focused and forces them to measure short-term progress. The three stages form a strategic plan.
