Without a plan there is no destination.
All too often I hear excuses about how difficult, time consuming and even pointless business planning is. What is interesting is that we are having the conversation. In consultations the dialogue will lead to running through what-if scenarios and ultimately it is recognized that we need a plan. Saying we need a plan is like saying we need an identity.
Crafting that identity is the first stage of properly focusing the business to allow for success to take shape. We need to define, measure and adjust as we go and it all starts by answering these identity questions every day to help your strategy take shape.
Questions to Ask
1. What do I want to be known for?
2. How do I create value?
3. Are 1&2 reflected in each and every transaction?
