Formulating a Winning Annual Business Plan
Even organizations with clear and sound long-term visions and strategies sometimes have difficulty driving out their annual business plan. Too often, the “plan” is really a set of financial targets and a few “statements of intent”, or one or more organizational leaders or departments are not aligned.
- How are we going to hit this year’s numbers?
- Based on our long-term strategy, what do we need to do this year?
- How can we get all parts of the organization focused on the same set of plans?
