Who should be responsible for updating and communicating a strategic plan and why?Note:
In one sense, everyone is ultimately responsible for USING a strategic plan, but in terms of implementation, the KEY player is the leader of the organization, often the CEO, COO, or other similar senior position. [ Strategic plans, or "grand plans" have to do, at least initially with the overall direction of the company or organization, so in theory, and often in practice it is the CEO that will be held accountable for results that should be generated through the implementation of a strategic plan.
That's not to say that others in the organization are NOT responsible. All managers will have some responsibilities for plan implementation, and communicating the essence of the plans to employees, but if a strategic plan fails, or the implementation is faulty, it's the CEO (or other leaders) that are responsible. http://work911.com/planningmaster/faq/implementwho.htm

I'm sorry that that wasn't a good answer. Please hold on while I contact an expert.Weegy:
We have established our overall strategies for the future. We need to make it official by having the Strategic Plan approved. [ Approval may involve the Board of Directors, Executive Management, and others who need to lend their support to get the Plan implemented. By having key decision-makers approve the Strategic Plan, it signals that it's OK to implement the Plan. Implementation is managed through the development of an Operating Plan.
An Operating Plan is a step by step plan for implementing the Strategic Plan. Operating Plans depend upon good strategic plans. If there are fundamental problems with the Strategic Plan, then successful implementation will be extremely difficult. Additionally, since operating personnel must implement the Strategic Plan, some level of involvement prior to this point should have taken place. http://en.coursgratuits.net/4/implementing+the+strategic+plan.php
