Growth Plans for Small Business–Some Rules

Filed under: Planning — Tags: — Mike Van Horn @ 12:50 pm

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)

Create a practical plan of action for your business in our annual plan workshop “Success in 2012.”
