Change is difficult to achieve. The Strategy and Tactics (S&T) tree is a powerful tool for addressing the question of "How to cause a change?" in an organization. If you are considering implementing any kind of change, you will discover why the S&T tree is a compelling enabler of change. When implementing a change in an organization, the basic requirements for success are communication and effectively synchronized actions in the plan. The S&T tree is the asset for achieving your goal because it presents all the logic of the plan and is easy to communicate to others.  After writing a strategic plan using the S&T tree, a Fortune 500 executive referred to his company's past planning efforts as "amateurish." This chapter provides an understanding of how to cause the change through descriptions of various applications of S&T trees for organizations to become "ever-flourishing."
