This I believe…
Today, strategic planning is more important than ever. Whether personally, or as part of a group or company, your strategic plan is your blue print for success. Your strategic plan articulates your vision of the future and your well thought out approach to seeing that vision realized. Such plans enhance your ability to navigate and consistently dominate your constantly changing environment. Most importantly, your strategic plan provides the necessary structure within which you can confidently make decisions and take action on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis (Not to mention quarterly, and annually).
Don’t have a Strategic Plan? You need one.
An up-to-date, well-articulated strategic plan puts you in the driver seat. Without a strategic plan, we find ourselves set adrift, flying blind, only hoping we will ever achieve our goals – perhaps not even clearly understanding what those goals might be. With an up-to-date, comprehensive strategic plan, we set the agenda, we create the future, we actively position ourselves to take advantage of our current environment – in short, we thrive.
