StrategyStrategic Planning is an activity that all entrepreneurs NEED to do for their business. The heart of strategic planning is turning your strategies into something tangible with a Strategic Planning System! In today’s competitive business environment, strategy is more than just a catch phrase. Its a necessary tool that will help you identify your niche in the marketplace and set your company apart from the competition.

Strategy is a systematic plan of action, a complete recipe for how a business owner should move forward under all circumstances within the business. A strategy dictates the rules and guidelines by which the vision, mission, and goals may be achieved. Strategies can be set for the business as a whole and/or for a key functional area.

You have vision, you know what needs to be done, and you have a process for doing so, now what? Basically what do you do with what you have? You implement and work the plan with your Strategic Planning System.

The Strategic Planning System is a system for working on your vision, setting strategic goals, and developing business strategies that result in execution of those strategies at key customer touch points in order to produce a positive bottom line.

It’s really about taking action on your overall company strategy – which is your game plan for success.
