This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to develop and monitor implementation of the operational plan to provide efficient and effective workplace practices within the organisation’s productivity and profitability plans.
Management at a strategic level requires systems and procedures to be developed and implemented to facilitate the organisation’s operational plan.
This unit applies to individuals who manage the work of others and operate within the parameters of a broader strategic and/or business plan.
An operational plan is derived from the strategic plan of the organisation and is a detailed plan to accomplish the objectives of the organisation.
An operational plan is essential to implement successfully. Failure to do so could lead to the failure of the action and monitoring plans.
“A goal without a plan is just a wish.”
– Antoine de Saint-Exupéry,
