Plan for Implementation by Preparing a Policy Brief


Week 5 – Assignment: Plan for Implementation by Preparing a Policy Brief


Effective strategy implementation requires the same determination and effort that is devoted to situational analysis and strategy formulation. After reviewing literature on developing and evaluating alternatives for implementation, develop a policy briefing for your leadership team. In your brief, be certain to address the following:

  1. Identify the link between strategy formulation and strategy implementation.
  2. Present strategies that can be used to effectively lead strategy implementation.
  3. Discuss risks that may occur during and after strategy implementation.

Provide specific examples where appropriate. Include a minimum of five scholarly sources within the last five (5) years.

The policy brief should include a one-page summary of key points as well as the paper. You may incorporate appropriate animations, transitions, and graphics to enrich your policy paper.

Length: 5-7 pages, not including title and reference pages
