Process Strategic Planning

Having witnessed this lack of positive plans or programs created, far too often, during my over three decades of identifying, qualifying, developing, training and consulting, to over a thousand individuals in positions of leadership, as well as facilitated Board and organizational strategic planning sessions, I feel a simplified process, with checks and balances, and quality reviews, is a needed understanding. Here is a some step process to improve the results of strategic plans.

  • Historic/heritage review and consideration: This must not be done as a one-plan-fits-all, but rather must be based on the specific heritage, mission, and vision of the specific group. Begin by understanding the history, and the perceptions of existing members. Understand why the group may, or may not be, considered as relevant, as it once was. Review opportunities taken, as well as missed, and clearly see the ramifications of each action. While great organizations evolve, they know who and why they are, and tweak, as necessary, but focus on their vital vision and mission.
  • Objective analysis-strengths and weaknesses, and ramifications: Every group has both strengths,

Business Start Up Basics

First, you need to make up a plan and then pick out a couple of things to accomplish each month. Second, you need to  define your short term goals. Yes long term goals are important too, however, remember you want to do this in a years’ time so for now let’s break your goals down into things to do each week and by the end of each month. Also, when you accomplish your goals for the month, be sure to reward yourself with something you like to do. Shopping, movies, hiking, you name it, be sure to reward yourself.  Remember, however, as we discussed when setting up our mock business, you must be sure that your goals are realistic. If you take on too many things to do each month, you will overwhelm yourself, which will eventually lead tofailure. A great analogy here is losing weight. So many people set themselves up for failure bysetting unrealistic weight goals, e.g. I want to lose 80 lbs in 4 months. Not going to happen. So be sure you don’t do the same with

Reasons Why Business Is Not Profitable

Fear is that thing that stops us dead in our tracks from doing what needs to be done to grow and build a profitable business. In order to be profitable you have to put your big panties and drawls on and play the game the same way the big boys do, IF you want to have a sustainable business. Just scale the game to your size. Here are some other reasons why your business is not profitable.

No Budget

This by all means is my favorite way to generate profit. How does this generate profit you ask? Well simply put, it gives you a point of reference as something to work towards to achieve. It’s setting the flag in the ground for the finish line. See once you set this flag on the ground as to where you are trying to go, it forces you to look at how you are going to get there. Charting this path puts you smack in front of the costs that it will take to get you there which then helps you determine the

Incorporating Your Business

  • Hiring an attorney: This option costs the most but requires the least effort on your part. You tell the attorney that you need your business incorporated or need an LLC, and you’ll soon have one. Any attorney that is fit to hold a license should be able to do this with no problem. If there is a problem, then you can always sue them for malpractice.
  • Hire an online incorporation company: Hiring an online incorporation company is the most common path. It costs less than hiring an attorney and your company will be just as legal. You’ll have to learn a bit more, like what is a registered agent and do you need to pay $125+ per year for it. All incorporation companies perform the same basic service of complying with state law to form a business entity. The major differences are price and whether you can order services individually or must take a more expensive package.
  • Do it yourself: It is possible to form an LLC yourself by filling out what are called Articles of Organization. A legal LLC in any State requires the filing of the Articles and payment of a registration fee to the State. The

Build A Strong Foundation

Start off by taking a good hard look at your organizational chart. Are there measurements in place at each level that are satisfactory in proving performance? If not, take a moment to establish what is important to the organization, customers, and you in each area. Create measurements that will be regularly reported to you so you can monitor performance areas. I suggest creating the measurements in collaboration with the individual responsible for reporting to ensure that the specifics of the calculations meet your goals. If possible, perform historical measurements to show a history of years, months, and/or weeks. Make sure you include a trendline and are able to note occurrences that lead to sudden increases or decreases in productivity.

Once measurements are in place, analyze the roles of individuals and ask yourself: is this position necessary in this format or can we make improvements to individual responsibilities for efficiency? If you are overstaffed, address this immediately. If you are understaffed, work to hire and train suitable staff and show a minimum of three to six months productivity up to your standards prior to moving forward with your growth plans.

This is also a great opportunity to identify individuals from your succession planning resources

Info of Finding Employees

Fortunately, there are a number of services and methods available that can make an employee search much simpler.

Of course, one of the most popular methods for recruiting employees is to use the traditional help wanted poster and classified listing. It should be noted; however that this method really only works well if you have a traditional storefront with a brick and mortar building. In addition, you should be aware that with this type of employee search you are generally only going to receive the most general and traditional recruits. While this is a reliable, and free, method for finding employees; you are much more likely to attract applicants who are unqualified and who may have questionable work ethics.

Public services can make the process of finding good employees a little easier without spending any money doing it. This is because each state has an employment service office that can help you with your employee search. These offices are often referred to as the ‘unemployment office’; a nickname most states would like to do away with. In reality, these offices are affiliated with the United States Employment Service and Department of Labor. They can help you

Blind Spots of Strategy Execution

The strategy that is not a strategy

The strategies defined are often reminiscent of amorphous vision à la “to be the most respected and successful company“; goal setting exercises along the lines of “to increase market share by growing faster than the market through introducing new products“; and so called strategic objectives more akin to long to-dos list. Complex power point slides, full of buzz-words describing blue-sky objectives, usually skip over their impracticability or the fact that no one has a clue as to how to get there.

Instead, a strategy should figure out which purposes are worth pursuing and capable of being accomplished – in other words, it should be about choice and focus. To achieve higher performance, leaders must spot the relevant trends, identify the strategic issues that will have the greatest impact on future business performance and define the resulting critical challenges. They then develop a coherent approach to overcome those challenges.

A good strategy thus becomes a bridge between challenge and action. It is short on vision, long on tough-minded analysis, policies and actions identifying the 5 or 6 insightful and actionable things that the business needs to do, to deliver substantially higher performance.

Simplicity As a Business Strategy

  • Problem #1 – The Gee Whiz Company sees profits slipping. The call goes out for innovative, creative solutions. Rather than pausing to realign and reaffirm the company’s vision, goals or mission, managers propose more steps, whiplash changes, or faster action.

Solution – Adding something in the name of improvement isn’t always the answer. Remember the KISS axiom, about keeping it simple? Sometimes removing a step, simplifying a process or dialing back the pressure results in greater workflow and greater buy in. Your workforce recognizes and values common sense and revels when they realize that the executive suite values it too.

  • Problem #2 – The Do It Today organization was in a scramble to replace a valuable high level manager that was retiring. The group was stuck in the “How will we ever replace her?” mindset. They were quickly complicating the process by assuming they couldn’t find anyone to match up to the previous employee.

Solution – Instead of overloading the wish list for the new candidate, utilize tools and assessments to identify the skills and attributes of the outgoing manager, then look for those same attributes in potential hires. This helps remove the emotional aspect
