Businesses fail when they fail to plan. It doesn’t matter your size, market, or how educated your executive team is. Without a plan, your business is flying by the seat of its pants.
Strategic planning can be alot of things: hard, complex, time-consuming, and maybe even a bit scary. However, it is not something to be ignored.
Here’s the good news: IT DOESN’T REALLY MATTER WHEN YOU START…JUST START!
Strategic plans act as the framework for departmental operational plans. Strategic plans (and their derivative Operational Plan cousins) serve several purposes:
- Documents and visualizes the executive vision
- Creates alignment/accountability between the executive group and downstream teams
- Provides the foundation for departmental operational plans
- Provides a pathway for EVERY employee to personally invest in the continued success of the company
Strat planning is an excellent way to EXECUTE BRILLIANTLY by being intentionally proactive and not blindly reactive.
