Does your business have a strategic or written plan? If you do, when was the last time you actually looked at it?
Most of the time, after writing these 20 page documents, they immediately start collecting digital dust in a folder on your server.
Unfortunately, a strategy that is not regularly reviewed, understood, shared and implemented by the whole team is useless, as everyone will forget their original priorities as urgent problems approach and new opportunities arise. So, how do you keep everyone reading from the same page and ensure your original strategy stays on track?
Technology Association of Oregon, Willamette Valley Consultants, and B2BCFO hosted a conversation about utilizing a living document called the One Page Strategic Plan. Participants were led through the eight interrelated concepts underlying the One Page Strategic Plan methodology so that they can apply them to establish and measure progress to achieve their goals. And learned how to view critical information such as targets, responsibilities, measurements, achievements, and issues quickly and create a road map that can be easily followed, instead of a plan with no real methodology.
