Being strategic is at the core of a successful business and nonprofit. Today, many are resorting to tactical planning and sometimes this is necessary, but you can never take your eye off of the ultimate goal of where you are going. If you do, you end up running in circles – exhausted, frustrated, and burned out.
The difference between being tactical and strategic is critical. Tactical is being short-term and narrowly focused, while being strategic is long term and broader in its vision and focus.
In today’s tough economic climate it is hard to shift from being tactical to strategic. The goal is to balance both and be able to shift to the needs of the moment while always keeping in the forefront of your mind, your long term goals – your long term strategy. If you can do this, you will filter all immediate and short term needs and decisions through the lense of your long term goal.
We can help you develop your strategic plan of where you want to go. We can help you monitor the success of the benchmarks and work to fruition of your goals. However, it is important to note that your team will be the most important factor in the ultimate success of your strategy.
