Growth Plans for Small Business–Some Rules

in Planning

Plan for what you can. Then plan how you’ll deal with all the things you can’t predict–i.e., the uncertainty.

Dilemmas, choice points, open questions. Any plan that does not address these is bound to fail.

A successful plan is brief (just one page), dog-eared, marked up, covered with coffee stains, because it gets regularly reviewed and revised.

Targets must be achievable–and changeable.

Be firm on your vision, but flexible on means. (Steve Jobs)

Thanks for sharing such a wonderful post. I am not really a proprietor but I have plan to have a small business, the fact that i don’t have much idea or knowledge and I really like what you said “Plan for what you can. Then plan how you’ll deal with all the things you can’t predict”
