Strategic Advice

Defining personal direction is somewhat difficult for the majority of people. Some are constantly changing occupations and experimenting, others are confident and focused on achieving a goal or a set of goals, but more often than not, both categories do it conforming to commonly accepted beaten tracks or out of their gut feeling, rather than based on rational analysis. Exceptions do exist of course, and it is debatable what is their share, but we can agree there is some (big?) variety of established recipes for success that the majority of people choose from.

As we live in a period of drastic transformation, beaten tracks no longer lead to success and gut feelings are a valuable guidance only combined with substantial life experience. This is the reason there are so many books on finding your purpose in life available. This is the reason there is so much anxiety in our lives.

It is even harder to define direction when it comes to organizations – if it is hard to define yourself, it will be definitely harder to define something sitting outside of you. Organically, people start businesses having just an idea and it may or may not grow to be a success.

At some point the organization needs some structure to be vital. It is provided on two levels of planning – strategic, focusing on the long term horizon, and operational, focusing on the discrete actions that need to be taken to reach the strategic goals.

The actual steps include:

Strategic Planning

Business Modeling

Operational Planning

Risk Management
