Believe it or not, one of the most important tasks before you start any Business Planning is to plan for how you will actually conduct your planning.
If you start without doing this, you are likely to go awry during your planning process.
To me, this is similar to how you decide on your holiday before you make plans for your holiday.
You have to make certain foundational decisions like when you want to take the holiday and where you want to go.
Without this information, your planning of the holiday could go sideways – you might book the wrong dates that clash with something else, or book somewhere inappropriate for the season!.
The first step in any Business Planning process is to “Get Ready To Plan.”
So let’s go through the decisions you have to make in order to make your Business Planning process smooth and efficient.
