Quite often Strategic Planning is one job that never gets crossed off the to-do-list.
Busy professionals are finding themselves so time poor that thought of a lengthy and time consuming strategic planning session is not at the top of the priority list.
The good news . . . is that the length of a strategic plan doesn’t dictate its level of effectiveness.
Strategic Planning in itself is a business growth strategy. Planning provides you with the opportunity to consider what the future may hold and align resources today to support that vision. You no longer need to produce lengthy time consuming documents. What a blessing that in today’s age of information overload.
A simple one-page document will allow you to get the goals of your business across all departments and team members, quickly and succinctly.
A simple and effective strategic plan can be produced with the Now – Where – How Method.
This is where you assess your business by asking where are you NOW and WHERE do you want to go? Then you can produce your strategic plan by HOW you are going to get to where you want to go.
Understanding where your business is now and where you want your business to go, is fundamental to the success and sustainability of any business. A clear understanding of your businesses core capabilities, strengths and weaknesses will provide you with the platform to better design your business so that you are focussing on the right things.
Strategic planning has the added benefits of aligning your team with your goals and to evaluate the allocation of your organisational resources and modify accordingly. If you have ever caught yourself saying “we all need to be on the one page” . . . well this is the one page
Taking the time to create a one – page business plan will ensure you are designing your business in line with your vision and focusing on areas that will deliver the best performance, productivity and profit both now and in the future.

Remember, if you don’t work out where you are going with your business, how will you know if you get there?
