Strategic Gap Closure Plan Excel Template

Strategic gap analysis is an excellent approach to developing a highly effective strategic plan. It identifies the gap between the current status and performance and status and performance to be achieved by the end of the planning period.
This Excel-based template provides a framework and methodology to identify and document the various actions, timeframes and responsibilities that must be undertaken and by whom to ensure that the gap is closed within the desired timeframe.

 It provides a roadmap and bridge from an effective strategic plan to the all-important operational implementation action plan.
There are many excellent tools that support and facilitate the strategic planning process such as SWOT, PEST, Porter’s Five Forces, Boston Consulting Group (BCG) Matrix, SPACE Matrix, competitive analysis, etc.

However strategic planning becomes an academic exercise if it is not supported by clear well-defined operational implementation plan. Typically, the strategic planning process identifies a gap between the current status and the desirable “better” status.
Our strategic Gap closure template is used to close this gap.
