I was recently interviewed about how important strategic planning is for businesses, especially at this time of year. In this video interview, I share how critical it is to assess the goals you accomplished (or missed) in the past year and what goals you hope to accomplish next year.
Strategic planning at its core helps you get focused on how and where you want to grow your business. Once you have a plan in hand and the actions needed to deliver on that plan, it’s then easy to share those goals with the entire organization so everyone is on the same page and marching together.
One thing I have found in my years of consulting is that small and mid-sized businesses overthink strategic planning. You don’t have to go on a weekend retreat or spend weeks gathering data to create a strategic plan. One of the big philosophies behind the Entrepreneurial Operating System® (EOS), that I use with my clients, is that less is more.
But you do need to have a plan.
I’ve worked with entrepreneurial companies for a long time and from what I have seen, the most successful companies are those that have a plan and playbook how to achieve their goals.
Watch the video below to hear more about the EOS® tools that I use with my clients to help them craft a two-page strategic plan that keeps them on track and successful in executing their plan.
