Every business strategy can be helped. Winning businesses are only as big as their ability to break their own limits with new slants and slashes. If you believe that your business can be way more than it already is, if you want to understand how to forge the perfect strategy to make it so, then you have visited the right page, and you only have to read a bit more beyond the fold.
‘Strategy is probably the biggest overlooked fact in business life” – Anthony Robbins
That’s a pretty solid point. Many businesses make this statement true by acting as living proof to it by ignoring the fact that what they are calling strategies are actually tactics. The demarcation is so crucial that it spells failure if not understood and acted upon.
Tactics is what you use in day-to-day operation to deal with things tit-for-tat. Even if you call the meeting agenda strategic business planning, if all you talk about is reactive patch-ups to quell specific leaks everywhere, you are still limited to tactics talk.
Strategy on the other hand is largely proactive and results from careful planning and goal setting that is geared towards “goal driven” and “solution oriented” business growth. The lack of business strategy, most of the time, leads to impaired business tactics that tend to be random by nature. Strategy is meant to govern tactical choices.
So, let’s say you’ve kept that business afloat on an exclusively tactical basis. Is there a way to develop a strategy from that position?
Ask yourself: “What are all the tactics trying to achieve in the operation of the business?” The answer to that question is the first insight needed in building future business strategy. RMC has already done this and a lot more for many businesses.
