Turning New Ideas into Tangible Results

The challenge for many SME leaders is transferring their new ideas and evolving vision into a working plan.

C19 is “disruptive innovation” on steroids. Every business has been disrupted, even those
that are seeing revenue growth through this period. C19 has been the disruptor, and the
best leaders will, and already are, looking at their business critically, using this situation to
find new, innovative opportunities, both externally (customers, supply chain), and inside
their companies (deployment of people, operating systems).
The challenge for many SME leaders is transferring their new ideas and evolving vision
into a working plan.
A number of practical questions arise:
– Where do I start?
– How do I get past this emotional reaction we are experiencing in order to move
forward with this work?
– How do I translate my future vision into measurable goals?
– What are the most important pieces to include in a high level summary of our future
vision?
– How far into the future should we plan?
– How do I move from long term strategies to short term action plans?
– How do I integrate new ideas with our current methods of doing business?
– How often should I review and update my plan?
– How do I maintain momentum when I need to make major changes (pivot) in the
future?
– How do I engage my team in creating and executing on the new vision?
– How do I incorporate my values and cultural changes in the new vision?
– Who do I share my plan with and how do I do this?
The devil is in the details.
The work we do at Plan Genie is centered on supporting business leaders in finding
pragmatic answers to these type of questions.
When you are ready to put some of your new ideas into play, a good starting point is
drafting or refreshing your Business Plan Summary. A template with detailed instructions is
available at plangenie.com.
This content rich web site will also help you find answers to the other questions listed
above.
The act of writing a business plan is a powerful catalyst to self discovery and clarity.
