Strategic planning should not cause despair. A simple five-step model uses everyday words and identifies immediately who is accountable for each result. This works especially for smaller organizations and start-ups, where strategic planning is a new idea for leaders and staff, or when a more complex plan has stalled (or died).


  • Introduction: Explaining The Plan In Five Minutes
  • The Key Idea: Five Steps Are All You Need
  • Input: Conversations With Stakeholders, Where They Do Most Of The Talking
  • Leadership: Where Are We Going, And Why: The Big Big Big Goals And Strategies
  • Management: What Needs To Be Done: Projects For Departments And Teams
  • Tactics: How Exactly, Day-By-Day, Do We Plan To Pull This Off?
  • Feedback: Did We Keep Our Promises? What Is The Evidence?
