Think It

The best way to predict the future is to create it. Developing a Strategy is a process to determine the future of an organization and the organizational resources needed to ensure success. The process determines the business opportunities and resources required to convert opportunity into success.

Business owners and leaders today have found developing a strategy and an implementation plan is far more effective than leaving the future to chance.  Developing a strategy, a vision, a mission, and a specific plan of action contributes to long-term, sustainable success. Implemented correctly, the strategy creates  higher levels of motivation, commitment, and fuels continuous higher levels of achievement from the entire organization.

To effectively chart your future, to develop an effective, forward looking vision, you need to assess your current situation. Only through Knowing yourself, by understanding your:

  • strengths,
  • weaknesses,
  • competition – current and future,
  • suppliers,
  • customers, and
  • market,

will an organization grow but also thrive.

The Output of this process is:

Core Values: The “Should of an Organization”. Core Values form the foundation the entire business is built upon.

Mission:  The “Why of an Organization” – Mission is the fundamental reason for the organization’s existence beyond just making money.

Vision: The “Where of an Organization” – Vision is a picture of a desired future it supports the mission, an image of the future we seek to create.
