Strategic planning is essential for company growth.

Taking time to hold strategic planning meetings helps to strengthen the operations of the company, ensure that staff members and other stakeholders are working towards the same goals, and to identify and adjust the organization’s goals.

Strategic planning meetings should be held every month for companies to ensure that valuable data is not lost.  Change can only be achieved through these meetings, so companies should take advantage of them.

The purpose of strategic planning is to remind leaders of their goals and work on areas that need recalibration to remain or become more successful. Strategic plans do not need to be multi-page documents. They can be as simple as a one-page document with everything aligned with the business.

During a crisis, strategic plans can help you concentrate on the end goal, rather than the disappointment you are experiencing. You don’t always have to focus on failures. You can also recognize your successes. This is what we call positive reinforcement and it helps to keep you moving.

A few tips for people who are having difficulty coming up with a strategic plan include figuring out what type of plan is right for you and your company and scheduling time to go over and review the plan. It all begins with writing it down. God tells us that writing our plans and our vision is a requirement because it keeps everything in front of us. It makes what we’ve written down official. This allows you to commit yourself to it so that you don’t change it whenever you feel like it.

The tale of creation is the best example of Biblical principles to emulate. We learn that even though God had the potential to build the universe all at once, He took His time and created it one step at a time and in order. This should serve as a reminder to us that there is a time and a place for everything and that we must complete our tasks each and every day.

Sometimes we may be tempted to have our own way and not give in to the pressure of following schedules and it is during these moments that we should pray and seek God’s will for us. We must allow the spirit to operate through us, guiding and directing us towards God’s will for our plans.

So, start working on your strategic strategy right away. Don’t put off planning until you’re in a jam. It is not too late to begin your plan and to learn about what God has in store for you.
