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.

Ineffective Executives, Managers & Supervisors

Most ineffective managers have one characteristic in common and that is they’re not consciously aware they are a poor manager. And, if they are aware of it on some level, they’re probably not willing to admit it to anyone, least of all themselves, simply because no one wants to believe that they are the real problem. This can probably be contributed to ego, denial, compartmentalization, self-delusion, lack of perspective, or some other underlying cause.

We all need to take a long hard look at that person in the mirror who brushes our teeth every day before placing blame somewhere else. When it’s happening to us, we put up our defenses. This is detrimental for both business and our management career.

Before you try to convince yourself (applies both to members of management and employees) that you’re the greatest manager in the world and your ability to be introspective is without borders, it is recommended you check these indicators of poor interpersonal characteristics or skills.
