Most organisations have some sort of Business Plan in place.
Too often though Business Plans are of limited use: announced with great fanfare, they are posted and then ignored. Instead of galvanising everyone on a clear direction, they foster confusion and cynicism.
Our Business Planning approach addresses 4 critical issues that leaders raise with us:
- "Our Business Plan highlights our KPIs - but not the actions to achieve them."
"We develop a good Business Plan - but we don't actually use it during the year."
"Our Business Plan has way too much on it - it's demoralising from Day 1."
"I want business units to create their own plans - to show what they're doing to deliver our overall objectives."
