PHASE 9: GO-TO-MARKET EXECUTION PLANNING

Defines the tactical priorities needed to achieve the strategic plan.

 

 

Though the two are interrelated, many companies confuse tactics with strategy. Tactics involve doing things right. Strategy involves doing the right things. The tactic-based approach of years past is dangerous. Being efficient at tactics means companies fall into one of two buckets: they either thrive or die quickly. Their fate is sealed by strategy. On the other hand, companies with effective strategy either thrive or survive. Certainly, it’s better to be good at strategy than tactics. But in a perfect world, the two intersect, and your company has a brilliant plan that is brilliantly executed.
