Choose Planning [as the saying goes, failing to plan is planning to fail]

by Rick Baker
On May 4, 2017

Strategic Planning does not have to be a frustrating, time-consuming, or boring process.

A quality strategic plan does not have to be lengthy.

After all, the real value of planning lies in 3 areas:

  1. the positive things people gain as they experience the process of the planning,
  2. the focusing of thought on efforts/action and goals/results, and
  3. the focusing of action people must take toward desired goals.

To accomplish (1) the process must be enjoyable, thought-provoking, open-minded and laced with active communication.

To accomplish (2) the process must be inspired and influenced by leaders' vision.

To accomplish (3) the strategies and tactics must be ‘user-friendly’, ideally ‘user-magnetic’.

 

PS: Many years ago, we designed the BIG PICTURE strategic planning process to simplify the presentation of plans in a 1-page summary.
