Leaders and Board Members:
Starting to feel guilty you did not prepare or update a strategic plan for your orgnanization’s next 24-36 months? Even thought it is mid-December you still have time to develop a strategy and a plan. Its not rocket science and when your team works together… united by the same plan…things just go much more efficiently and you’ll make a bigger impact.
Joe Calhoon wrote a terrific book on strategic planning. In it, he provides a planning template and offers simple, logical steps your team can take to develop a workable strategy. His approach is brilliant and yet simple. Once through his process, you have a meaningful and workable strategy document (complete with your team’s buy-in) without any of the mystique and meaningless lofty words that often populate these documents.
His book is called The One Hour Plan For Growth and is available from all of the usual sources.
