If you fail to plan, you plan to fail! Stop leaving your future to chance. Watch the video for some tips on how to create a growth-driven strategy for your IT business.
Why do we need to focus on planning?
If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail!
If you love your business and you want it to succeed, you need to have a plan.
The plan you make serves as a blueprint to moving forward.
It also serves as a guideline for your team, a path that shows where they’re headed.
Conversely, not having a plan reflects your lack of leadership.
Sooner or later, that will manifest itself with your team doing a hundred and one tasks but unclear what the goal is.
Worse, the lack of a plan will also be evident to your clients by the way you handle them.
Creating the Success Blueprint
Creating a plan for your IT firm need not be complicated. It starts with your finances.
Because your finances are the clearest evidence of your success.
After that you can link it to other drivers of your business such as:
- Consultancy rates
- Resource management
- Sales and management
This information should be ready and available to your management team when they need it.
It will help you and your team make decisions that lead to growth and success
When planning, make sure that your initiatives are realistic and achievable.
Be SMART when setting up goals and targets:
If you haven’t created a clear business plan yet, start NOW.
Don’t leave it to chance or to a miracle. As I always tell my team, HOPE is NOT A STRATEGY!
