2008 Create Your One- Page Business Plan Agenda Why Have a Business Plan? Planning Best Practices Your Plan Process Tools Follow-Through Follow Through from Today Why Have a Business Plan? You are 80% more likely to accomplish what you write down. A non-emotional way to measure your progress through out the year. If you don’t know where you are headed, how do you get ‘there’ and how will you know when you get ‘there’? It’s the form that leads to the substance to make your goals reality. Business Planning Best Practices Begin with the end in mind. Align with your Vision. Be focused. Be present. Be out of the office when you develop your plan. Remember, no one can go back and make a brand new start. Anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending. Steer the ship toward what you DO want vs. what you DON’T. Think BIG! Step 1: Business Check-Up When was the last time you audited your business? On which areas should you focus? What are your strengths? Your staff’s?How can you leverage them more? Which of your strengths gives you the most energy? What are your weaknesses? How can you compensate for them? Step 2: Create Your One-Page Business Plan Use the results of the practice check-up you conducted to develop your plan. Remember, the foundation of a solid business plan worth its weight in anything is the Vision. Refer to the One-Page Business Plan. Step 3: Follow Through Track your progress on goals to actual. What tools do you have to do so? Schedule monthly and quarterly business plan reviews (always goals to actual). Schedule accountability meetings with your accountability partners (your manager(s), Mentor, Coach, Staff, Significant Other, etc.) Follow Through from Today Develop your Plan (online or on paper). Share your Plan with at least two accountability partners prior to next week’s class. Set your environment up to succeed! Work the Plan! See you next week Thursday!
