Defining the goals, objectives, and strategies of your Strategic Plan will help to define the parameters of the project and give it focus and direction.

Consider the feedback you received on your Week 6 Discussion posting.

Use one or more budgeting tools to outline the financial resources for your proposed change. Reflect on any challenges that arise as you evaluate the financial resources required for this change now and in the future.

Review the information on PERT and other timeline tools in the Week 6 Learning Resources.

Use PERT or another tool to analyze and represent the activities that need to be completed to successfully plan and implement your proposed change. Be sure to note dependencies (e.g., a task/milestone that must be completed in order to trigger the next step), and realistically assess the minimum time needed to complete the entire project.

To complete:

Write a 1- to 2-page description of your budget and timeline for your Strategic Plan. In your description:

Provide an analysis of the financial impact of your Strategic Plan. Provide?visual support (e.g., tables, charts, screenshots of Excel worksheets) for your financial analysis?directly within your template.?

Provide a timeline for the implementation of your proposed change using PERT or another timeline tool. Consider how your timeline can allow leeway for variance.

Reflect on the comments related to balanced scorecards exchanged in this week’s Discussion.

Conceptualize a balanced scorecard that could be used to measure and evaluate the impact of your planned change on performance and determine if the costs are justified in terms of the outcomes. Consider what you would measure in terms of finances, customers, internal process, and learning and growth.

Think about how you would gather valid and reliable data.

To complete:

Create a balanced scorecard for your Strategic Plan issue. Directly provide the diagram/image for your balanced scorecard in your submission. (To do this, you may create the diagram in the template using Word SmartArt, or you may create it with an outside diagramming tool of your choice and copy and paste a screenshot of the image into your template.)

Then, in 1–2 pages, explain how your balanced scorecard could be used to measure and evaluate the impact of the planned change and how it could be used to determine if the outcomes justify the project costs.?

By Day 7

Submit the following sections of your Strategic Plan, using the provided template:

To prepare:

As noted in the Module 2 and 3 Assignment, you should have been documenting all resources used to develop your Strategic Plan.

Refine your Reference List as necessary, and add the resources you used to create Sections 7 and 8 of your Strategic Plan.

Section 7: Evaluation Plan
