Before moving on to major goals and strategic action plans, review the plan so far to make sure it is realistic and practical. It should also include specifics to get the company from point A to point B. Now it is time to set key goals that can be achieved within the next few years. These goals should be expressed in terms of quantities and can relate to sales, market segments, products or anything else you have identified in the plan. A final step in developing a strategic objectives plan is to outline five or six action programs. This is the time to get specific about deadlines, budgets, time frames and objectives. List the action programs in order of importance, with the most important one first.
