The Reality

  • The plans that most organizations put together are not rooted in reality, they’re rooted in some form of a wish list
    • Money gets wasted because of needed rework
  • If the “why” of what you’re doing in your business isn’t clearly defined, something will go wrong
  • Change works better when it’s done through us, not to us
  • The real challenge is devising your plan into actionable results

Closing Lines

  • The planning acronym SMART should be RATSM
    • Relevant – is this a meaningful thing?
    • Achievable
    • Timely
    • Specific
    • Measurable
