STRATEGIC PLANNING FOR YOUR BUSINESS
"In the absence of clearly-defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily trivia until ultimately
we become enslaved by it."
Do you spend more time working in or on your business? If you don’t spend time on your business you may not have to worry long about working in it! A professional sports team would not dream of walking on the field without a pre-determined game plan/strategy. You should not dream of operating without the same for your business!
Where to start?
- Identify your true core business and evaluate if that is owning your attention or if you are overwhelmed with putting out fires and administrivia
- Do a gap analysis: Where are we, where do we want to be, plan for getting there. (Email me and I will send you a simple form for this)
- Establish 5 overriding objectives for this year. Plan big, but allocate resources accordingly
When I conduct a strategic planning session for a company it is staggering how much clarity and direction they walk out with from a few hours of thinking strategically about their business!
