Leveraging Resources and Overcoming Barriers
Post an explanation of the specific resources (e.g., financial, personnel, time) needed to address the weaknesses and threats and build upon opportunities and strengths you identified through your SWOT analysis. Explain how you would leverage these resources to carry out the change you are proposing through your Strategic Plan. Also, explain the strategies you would use to minimize or address barriers, including resistance to change, related to your Strategic Plan. Explain how you would promote stakeholder involvement for your proposed change and encourage them to become change champions. Finally, explain the potential negative consequences that could arise if stakeholder involvement is not adequately addressed during planning.Thomas, P. L., & Roussel, L. (2020).
