Strategic Managment

Perception is strong and sight weak. In strategy it is important to see distant things as if they were close and to take a distanced view of close things” —Miyamoto Musashi

  1. Shared Vision
    This is where it starts. It sounds simple and is anything but. There is no rushing the process of finding a common vision that inspires.
  2. Assessments
    A SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities & Threats) is a common method to assess the current and possible future conditions concerned with your success.
  3. Assets
    Know what assets you have and need to succeed. Prioritize and rank them and then invest more in those that have a high potential for profitability.
  4. Planning
    What is your goal? Where are you starting from? What will it take to get from here to there? This is your plan.
  5. Monitoring & Evaluation
    Many people fear monitoring and evaluation because it feels judgmental. It is simply a snapshot and offers factual information so you can make smarter decisions.
  6. Continuous Improvement
    How will you learn from the past? ...know what your customers want before they do? ...stay ahead of the competition? ...neutralize risks before they become problems?
