Strategic Business Planning

Our Approach to Strategic Planning

The age-old truth of successful businesses is often characterized in the phrase, “Plan your Work, Work your Plan!” The truth is, plans come in many forms and faces.  From the simple to the complex, planning is a form of road-mapping, going from point “A” to point “B” to Point “C” to our desired Outcome, End or Result.

Plans generally fall into one of three formats:

  • Short-Term Plans
  • Long-Term Plans
  • Strategic Plans

The common element of each is that they are thought through in advance. For it is equally true that, “The man who flies by the seat of his pants is most likely to lose his shorts!” For failing to plan is truly planning to FAIL!

“Over the river and through the woods, to Grandmother’s House we go!” is a classic example of short term planning/thinking.

“I want to visit every state capital in the United States by the time I am 60 years!” is an example of long term planning/thinking.

“Our Company will explore the Universe, to go where no Man has gone before!” is an example of STRATEGIC planning/thinking.
