Ever found yourself up to your elbows in customer complaints, staff queries, rework and ultimately, inefficiency? You’re informally creating objectives and blindly navigating through industry challenges, scribbling down things to do and wondering how you are going to charter the course of your business – thinking to yourself “there must be a better way to do this”. Truth be told, there probably is…you just don’t know it yet. To truly be in control of navigating through challenges, keeping all your staff on the same page and eliminating inefficiency, you need to get better at formal strategic planning than simply forming action plans in your head.
