Forming a Strategic Plan

1. Identify Major Enhancements

Use your customer journey vision to find major gaps between today's customer journey and the envisioned one.

2. Sequence the Enhancements

Use fundraising needs, competitive differentiation, and technical dependencies to sequence the enhancements.

3. Estimate Efforts

Do some t-shirt sizing to validate that the strategic plan fits into a reasonable time horizon - likely 2-4 years for most companies.

4. Validate

Talk to internal stakeholders and customers to validate that the plan makes sense and excites them.
