What does it mean in practice?

1. Ownership

Accountability for delivering the overall Business Unit Plan rests with the business Chief Executive Officer and his direct reports.  Local site management and functional heads are responsible for delivering their own site / function specific elements of this plan.

2. Communication

We will ensure that the contents of the plan are communicated to all employees so that our people understand targets (leading and trailing KPI’s) and the actions required throughout the year to deliver these.  It is expected that site management will review progress against their plan at least quarterly. Progress against the plan should be communicated to all employees.

3. Implementation

Site management will be responsible for implementation of the plan and therefore responsible for providing the necessary resources, internal and external, and any necessary development of personnel in order to deliver the plan.

4. Involvement

We want our leaders and employees at all levels to get involved in delivering our plan so we can create an interdependent culture, in which everyone is involved and their input, ideas and experience is valued.
