Strategic Planning

It’s that time of year to begin reviewing your strategic plan. If you have not yet developed a strategic plan, now is the time to commit.

Below are five questions to consider, developed by Peter Drucker, as an effective way to begin strategic planning.

1. What is your mission? Why does your organization exist in the first place? What are you trying to accomplish for your customers?

2. Who are your customers? Describe the organization you wish to satisfy with your actions.

3. What does your customer value? What is it that you do especially well that you are uniquely suited to provide to your customers? How can you exceed the standards set by your competition?

4.What results are you trying to accomplish? How do you measure success?

5. What is your plan? How do you go about satisfying your customers and getting the results that are most important?

Summit Advisors can help facilitate your strategic planning process.

Coaches ( and teammates) can support my work performance as well as my progress toward personal/professional goals in the following ways:
