Business Planning Can be Simple!

Business Planning Can be Simple!

Do you have a business plan? When I ask that question to business owners, I get a variety of responses, most of which are accompanied by an eye roll or two.

The reason for the eye rolls? Many people believe that creating a business plan is a long, drawn out affair that compiles a ton of data and research into a document that at the end of the day doesn’t do much for helping people actually run their business. This type of document is great for demonstrating to bankers or investors that you have a handle on your business, the competitive environment in which you are operating, and your overall plans. BUT… a huge business plan doesn’t really help you run your business on a day to day basis. For that – you need something simple, that at the same time, gives you enough direction and focus to meet your overall goals.

Enter the One Page Business Plan. This is a proven system that will allow you to laser focus on your most important goals for the year. You determine your vision for the next several years, then set strategies and specific action plans to create a roadmap to guide you. You will also determine which business results are the most critical, and track those throughout the year.

One page plans condense your best thinking into an actionable plan. Better yet, this is a tool to use for your entire management team as a Leadership Operating System.

When my clients implement the One Page Plan across their company – they immediately experience two things: the first is an increase in communication, as people share their plans and walls between departments get a bit more transparent.

The second thing companies experience is an increase in accountability: having a plan in place for each person motivates people to make sure they are hitting their targets.

And that is just the beginning!

One page plans can serve as a foundation for propelling organizations forward in amazing ways.

You also don’t have to wait until the beginning of a new business cycle to start using one.  Start now – you’ll be glad you did! Contact me if you need help getting started.
