Defining success, setting goals and objectives and identifying the specific actions needed to achieve them is an essential management tool required to keep your business on track.
As a business owner you’ve no doubt been reminded on several occasions about the importance of business planning. And no doubt you agree that planning is important.
And yet in all probability you rarely seem to find the time to develop strategic plans, but end up trusting your intuitions and relying on snap judgments rather than adhering to a pre-arranged strategy.
Experience has taught us that it is precisely this ‘sixth sense’ that many business owners and managers seem to possess that is the driving force behind entrepreneurship – and we have learned to take it seriously.
But the planning is important. Without sound analysis, clear projections, and well thought-out contingencies, businesses tend to become hostages to fortune.
Proactive management is replaced by reactive coping, and instead of following a well-thought-out plan, owners and managers are reduced to responding to unforeseen events, or trying to catch up on missed opportunities.
