Do you have a strategic plan? If not, how do you know what the 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 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The traditional method of developing a complex 10 year strategic plan is outdated and often fails.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 signigicant gains, giving you the momentum to take on large, more long term and resource heavy plans.
The other critical component of any strategic plan is the need to take action. One of the other many reasons for failure 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.
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. Working through a range of processes from consulting, workshops and online learning, our methods fully focus on your needs not a generic methodology doomed to fail.
