“If you don’t have a plan, you become part of somebody else’s plan.”
~ Terence McKenna
“It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your calculations, if you live near him.”
~ J.R.R. Tolkien
“Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all is a form of planning.”
~ Gloria Steinem
“A plan is only as good as those who see it through.”
“Strategic planning will help you uncover your available options, set priorities for them, and define the methods to achieve them.”
~ Robert J. McKain
Previously I referred to a list being the simplest form of organization. I stand by that and take it one step forward to suggest that making a list is often the basis of a plan.
A thoughtful leader will welcome the contributions of an inclusive plan. An attentive leader will welcome the advantages of available time and resources within the organization. An inclusive approach will contribute to an efficient and effective plan while reducing risk. An inclusive plan identifies the current, the future, the past and where it is important to go and how to go.
If you are searching for an innovative plan, it might be time to reach out for development support. BMG wants to be that support.
