The Strategic Framework is a comprehensive picture of the organisation’s strategy.
It clarifies how individual efforts and team projects can be connected to achieve the best outcome.
It includes meaningful target measures and a sequence of activities that help focus on the key efforts that implement the strategy.
A strategic framework includes:
• A clearly stated vision;
• Clearly articulated values;
• A mission, articulated in a mission statement;
• The overall goal of the organisation;
• The immediate objective of the organisation;
• The key result areas on which the organisation intends to focus;
• An understanding of the gaps between where an organisation is and where it needs to be to achieve its goals and objectives and of the forces that are likely to help and hinder it.
Additionally, capabilities, budgetary parameters and opertional plans provide a comprehensive picture of what the organisation is planning to achieve in the short term and the broad financial arrangements in place.
All these elements need to be in alignment.
This means that they should fit together and complement one another, rather than contradict one another.
