Helping you run your business in the long term
To run an activity in the long term, you need to develop a solid business strategy. It is based on a set of essential elements, namely: vision, mission, strategy. Once in place, to achieve the desired results, you will have to deploy it. To do this, you will need to move to goals, tactics and KPI’s. They will help you to define concrete actions to implement.
Create a strong company positioning
First and foremost, you need to engage in a strong positioning exercise. It means being able to answer questions such as: who are we, what are our values, where do we want to go, what is the long-term direction, how do we want to create value for our customers, our shareholders, our employees, how are we different from our competitors?
The answers to these questions will define the vision, mission and partly the strategy of your company. You must always keep in mind that the consistency between each of these elements is key. There are many tools to help you to build your strategy: SWOT analysis, BCG matrix, innovation curve, etc.
Define your goals and tactics and measure their performance
The second step is to define mid-term objectives. Therefore, you must finalize the strategy by performing a gap analysis between the market situation and your ideal situation. Apart from this exercise, you will also need to set up goals.
But how do you determine that you are going in the right direction? By measuring your performance. This implies that key performance indicators (KPI’s) are defined in a SMART way and that tactics are also defined. A set of actions will allow these tactics to come true. In defining these actions, you should always think, “To what extent will these actions contribute to one of my goals? “.
To maximize your success, you can apply an iterative technique called “PDCA” (Plan, Do, Check, Act). This will help you to be very responsive to potential market changes.
Objectives, tactics and actions are short-term elements. It is essential to always monitor them by looking at your activity dashboard and monitoring your performance indicators.
