All the strategy in the world is useless without execution.

Do you have a strategic plan?

If not, how do you know what your future looks like with so much disruption in every industry? No matter the size of business you lead the value of a strategic plan cannot be underestimated. Simply selling more or ‘growing’ doesn’t provide the framework required to manage that growth or ensure you are pointing in the right direction.

In our experience, many leaders don’t have a strategic plan because they are technicians. They know what they do, and they are good at it, but they don’t know how to look into the future.

Another reason leaders don’t have strategic plans, is that they don’t know how and feel they should know.

All businesses need sound direction to ensure they meet their potential. It is assumed that the strategic planning aspect of growing a business is complex. But if you know where you want to get to that’s half the battle. Next is to reverse engineer the way you get there.

The traditional method of developing a complex 10 year strategic plan is outdated and often fails. In our experience a blend of short and long term strategic planning enables you to move quickly to make significant gains, giving you the momentum to take on large, more long term and resource heavy plans.

One of the other many reasons for failure of strategic planning is the inability to take action on the plan, once again driven by too much complexity and the inability to get team buy in and to align it to your mission.

Strategic Planning Short-Term-Strategy

We have experience in working with start ups without a plan to complex large businesses that want to simplify their strategy to give them a new competitive advantage.

The one thing that we always uncover is that the most complex challenges and opportunities are not realised due to the fear that strategic plans have to be all singing and all dancing.

Some of the most effective strategic planning we have been involved in focused 1-3 core ideas that you commit to over a set period of time, that have the potential to deliver the most impact to your business. But as your business evolves it to critical that you don’t become romantic about the plan in place. Things change.

For many the idea of a long term plan holds them back. Working in short, focused periods helps you get momentum and confidence to take on more challenging strategic moves.

One of our favourite strategic plans has been ‘The Sock Strategy’ – utilising socks to increase sales from $400 per month to over $12,000.

Need help with your strategic planning and taking action?

There are many formats that the strategic planning process can take shape. In our experience, we know that each business and leadership team have different needs, but all come back to the same conclusion; how can we get really clear about where we are going?

A fresh perspective brings what may have previously been unknown, to become very obvious. All too often business owners sit too close to the problem and that third party can break the situation down into bite-size chunks and facilitate a path forward.

We can support you in the following ways:

Strategic Planning Workshops
• Strategic Planning tools
• Strategic Planning Online Tools and Courses
• One on one Strategic Planning Coaching
