This Practice Note will focus on the preparatory considerations and steps you may want to consider when starting out on a strategy.
An initial consideration is whether you are looking to do something for your team, which may be large or small, or for a wider part of, or the whole, organisation.
Doing something for the whole organisation would mean greater availability of resource, better alignment of your team with the rest of the organisation and, possibly, an opportunity for your team to be seen to be taking the lead on an important initiative of general benefit.
