Write a 2- to 3-page paper to compare and evaluate the two Strategic Plans you select. Address the following: How are the strategies different? What are the key elements of each Strategic Plan? Compare the goals and strategies identified in each one. Which plan is likely to be more successful and why? Put yourself in the role of a manager at one or both  facilities. What are your responsibilities in ensuring one or both are  successful? What barriers are there to successful implementation of the strategies, and how could the manager overcome these barriers?
