Bottom Line: AR organizations need to plan their programs and resources to achieve most effectively their AR goals. An AR Strategic and Tactical plan should be a detailed roadmap that aligns programs and activities with corporate and business unit objectives, AR goals and the strategic initiative of driving sales.
AR Strategic and Tactical Plan:
n: A scheme or method developed to ensure that the AR team is systematically delivering business value to the company for the time period specified. The AR plan requires both a near-term tactical focus as well as a long-term strategic vision. The AR Strategic and Tactical Plan is a document that begins with a statement of AR goals and then provides comprehensive detail for executing AR activities such that all AR resources and programs are prioritized to best achieve those AR goals. Besides being the blueprint for AR execution, the AR Strategic and Tactical Plan is also valuable “sales collateral” for obtaining resources from executives.
