Right now, every business is either disrupting or being disrupted. In either case, change and adaptability is imperative.
How can everyone pull together to make sure changes are felt across any business so you continue in the same direction, but allows adaptability?
Where are you now? Where do you need to be? What needs to be done?
It starts with planning...
1. Build a 90 day plan
Planning out exactly what you need to achieve in a simple format will help you achieve more. You will quickly see what can, and cannot be achieved or what you need help with. Get all of your team to create plans for every department so everyone knows what everyone is doing and needs to do in order to reach the target or goal that the company wants to achieve.
2. Share your plans
By sharing your ideas and plan for the way forward with each other this allows your team/colleagues to understand what you do and why you do it, get buy in if needed, for the plan to be challenged (what if you rely on another department and what you want to happen cannot be achieved as quick!) This paves the way for others to add to your ideas and come up with other great ideas, which makes your plan even better.
3. Keep it simple
Don’t make your plan too confusing and don’t add too much so that it ends up being uncontrollable for you. Put down what you know you can comfortably achieve plus a few extras of course, to make sure you are always pushing head to achieve a little more.
4. Stick to the plan
Do not deviate unless of course the new thing/idea is too good to be true but make sure you always come back to the plan.
