Hello.

Branch network development plan.

Is the meaning of this phrase clear?
Wouldn't it better to say "development plan of branch network"?

Thank you.

No. It is just a phrase. To be more precise, it is one of the company goals.

Goals have to contain a verb. What is the company's goal that this line wants to express?

So, what noun should I use: aim, target, objective?
It is going to be one of the slides in presentation.
"Company's goals" is meant to te a title.
"Development plan of branch network" is one of the company's goals.
In this case may I just say "branch network development plan" (=we have a plan and strategy to open and develop new branches)?

Context is everything. Knowing that this is a slideshow presentation clarifies what you're looking for.

Write Company Goals as the title. Here "Company" is an attributive noun modifying "goals". I think you mean to say that the company plans to create or implement a branch network development plan, or possibly both. If it's the first, a bullet-point version of the goal would be Create branch network development plan. Merely naming the plan doesn't tell the reader what the company intends to do with or about it; that's what a verb is for.

This plan is already exist. It just must come true.
I tend to use "implement" instead of "create" in this case.
Please advise.

You already have the right word. You don't make a plan come true. You implement it.
