Strategic Planning


Why you need strategic planning?

Scientific studies in the field of small business confirm that one small business fails every 60 seconds. Yet, only 19% of small business owners regularly practice any type of strategic planning despite the mounting evidence that there is a strong relationship between strategic planning and the prospects for small business success.

What is strategic planning?

Strategic planning addresses the following three fundamental questions:

1). Where is an organization heading over the next several years?
2). How is it going to get there?
3). How will it know if it got there or not?
