Before jumping into the specific action plans, we suggest you spend a few minutes listing your Critical Impediments. This can be done on a corporate level, and, in larger companies, by the other organization lines, such marketing, sales, operations , etc. Try brainstorming without limiting the ideas. This will help “prime the pump” as you begin more focused discussion under each Action Plans section.
