THERE IS NO SUCH THING
I had a call this past week from a person who asked if we could provide a basic business planning format that is tried and proven. His interest was to either buy that plan from me or to pay me for an hour of my time, to give him the outline and then explain how to develop and implement such a plan.
This evening I am presenting a session on the ABC’s of Starting a Business. I plan to share that this is a time of change and all the strategic planning outlines that have been and are still written about, no longer work.
Trying to plan and predict the path that your business has to follow for the next 5 to 10 years is impossible. This is a time when the only prediction that will hold true is that no predictions will hold true. This is a time of change, and change is only another word for growth and for learning new ways of doing. New ways of thinking about familiar things can release new energies and make all manner of things possible.
At Strategic Duck and BizQuack, we talk about Nuggets that when linked together form a path for business growth. In our system, each Nugget stands alone and can be modified, as needed, without upsetting the rest of the Nugget chain. As each Nugget is updated it makes the overall chain more powerful because it has had an infusion of new systems, procedures and technologies to stay ahead of the curve.
The makeup and number of Nuggets may change over time, the important thing is to stay abreast of the disruptive times we live in and to be a change leader, not a change follower.
Yes, most of the Nuggets are familiar and you will find them in the education section of your BizQuack dashboard. New additions will be added each month and some of the current Nuggets will be rewritten in order to present the best and latest support for your business.
If the plan doesn’t work, change the plan.
