Get this book ONLY if you are serious about getting better results from your hard work. Maybe the title should be FAIL TO PLAN, PLAN TO FAIL.
Why should you execute a robust plan? Whether you run a small business, nonprofit/NGO, manufacturing or service company, international conglomerate, military organization or government agency or manage a function in any of these, learn from these actual coaching and implementation sessions with customers from around the world. This practical advice is based on the real-life situations people face when they try to turn vision into reality, a plan into results, and lofty goals into daily concrete operations.
These strategic planning coaching sessions (used with successful executive and management teams and individuals) enable you to:
- Increase results from your efforts significantly
- Be more productive and effective
- Show vastly improved financial performance
- Fulfill your core mission with greater impact and less wasted activity
- Engage employees fully to accomplish defined goals
- Delight customers, consumers, constituents or clients who recognize you as the best source for products or services
- Do more with less in any economic environment.
30 Days to Building a Strategic Plan that Gets Results is based on Strategic Planning. This approach to planning is NOT an annual exercise, forgotten as soon as the retreat is over and you are back to running day-to-day operations. Strategic Planning is a methodology; a process to assure bottom-line results.
