Subject. The article addresses a methodological approach to determining the feasibility of including an event that ensures the achievement of strategic targets in the implementation plan of a strategic planning document (i.e., a national project or a government program).
Objectives. The purpose is to develop a methodological approach to create a balanced list of measures, which, if implemented, will have a positive effect on achieving strategic guidelines for sustainable socio-economic development and strengthening the economic security.
Methods. The study rests on expert estimates for calculating the index of activities quality. The calculation of the index is based on the assessment of the index of incoming resources, the index of process, the index of outcome. The approach enables to consider elements associated with the initiation of a particular event, its successful implementation, and achievement of a specific outcome.
Results. The study creates an approach to defining the degree of elaboration of the event and the feasibility of including it in the implementation plan of the strategic planning document. The method of expert estimates enables to neutralize some uncertainties and costs caused by initial data quality, empirical estimates of the degree of obtained results accuracy, and allocated resources.
Conclusions. The working out of organizational, legal, and regulatory measures is only one element of strategizing. Further research should develop methodological approaches to the definition of targeted and critical values of the strategy system to implement a high-quality and operational monitoring.
