Today’s Topic: Developing a Business Strategy
Who doesn’t want to make better business decisions? And who doesn’t want to make better decisions faster, ahead of the competition? In the sea of opportunity, there is also an ocean of options.
Discovering what is best for your business can be intimidating. But you can develop a strong strategy and turn that strategy into an execution plan that makes sense. Here are some key components to consider:
- Know where you are headed – Define where your business is heading and why. Spend time assessing your ‘why’.
- Identify data assets – Make use of data and be confident in what it is telling you (and not telling you) by identifying data assets and how to use them in your strategy.
- Assess organizational readiness – If the strategy takes your organization out of its comfort zone, plan to invest in organizational change management to prepare and shepherd the organization through it.
- Focus on delivery – The best strategy in the world isn’t going to transform your business unless you can execute on it. Identifying how to get this done has to be a consideration.
