Strategic plans? - YES WE CAN!

Strategy and strategic are powerful sounding words. If you’re one of the big companies in the country (Fonterra for example) you use these words.

If you’re a self employed plumber, a business adviser will tell say you need a strategy to get more business and make more profit.

So what is a strategy? Simply put, it’s a way to achieve a goal you have set for yourself or your business. It’s all about how you are going to get a great result.

So, where do you start? Sit down and nut out what your ideal business will like by the end of this year. Write it up or draw a picture – preferably both.

Then write down 5 big steps you have to apply to get to your ideal business. That’s it! Simple stuff. Don’t over-complicate it. Keep it simple.

Now here’s the bit you can’t do by yourself.

  • Can you justify the achievability of your goal to a challenging third party? Is it real or dumb blue sky stuff? Nothing wrong with a big dream but don’t set yourself up for failure either.
  • Is every step well thought through and can you build a strategic plan inside every step to achieve the big goal.
  • What resources will you need?
  • What will you need to change to achieve your goal?


I love partnering clients as they build strategic plans. At times I get right up their noses because I keep asking why and how.

But at the end of the day, we end up with a strategic plan that is workable and achievable.
