This post is one of a short series on effective strategic planning:
Obviously, in the context of a blog post I can't tell you specifically what should be in your strategic plan (that would require us to spend some time together), but I can show you precisely how to identify what should.
Below is a recording of the class I've taught on effective strategic planning for over 20 years. All the principles are timeless, and most importantly, battle-proven in every environment - they'll work for you no matter whether you lead a manufacturing or service business, a not-for-profit, a faith- or cause-based organization or even an NGO - I've successfully implemented these precepts in all of these and more.
You'll hear me say some things that go against some of the most firmly help beliefs in how the strategic planning process should work. I can only say that this is because I'm committed to helping leaders like you with what demonstrably does work - not just what 'should' work.
p.s. A signed copy of Predictable Success goes to anyone who can identify the precise year this class was originally recorded using only the time-bound references I make during the recording - just drop your guess in the comments below, and if you're right, I'll contact you for your mailing address, and the book will wing it's way to you! 🙂
