Establish Action Plans that are Attainable

Make sure that everyone establishes Action Plans that are attainable. Asking for the impossible de-motivates and dooms this management approach to failure.

In establishing Action Plans you and your employees also need to consider factors outside of the employee’s control that could impact completion of the Action Plans. For example, the company closes a very large contract that will require certain employees to reassess their priorities in order to complete the contract on schedule and within budget.

In that regard, be sure to remember Action Plan Guideline #2:

• Always focus on meeting the wants and needs of the customers.

Always remember that happy customers mean repeat business and that’s the least costly marketing initiative your company can undertake.
