Developing your strategic plan

Make sure you use adequate, credible and reliable APA source citations to support your work.
The plan is your own creative document. You may review the sample plans shared in the resource section and use them as a guide in developing your strategic plan. Please keep in mind that you must still meet the 20% similarity scan requirements upon submission. DO NOT SIMPLY COPY AND PAST MATERIAL FROM THE COMPANY WEBSITE.
