Strategic Planning Tools Your Business Needs

By February 18, 2020Blog

Advivo Accountants and Advisors share some of the best strategic tools to take your business to the next level!

In light of our upcoming event ‘Your Strategic Planning Toolkit Explained’ Advivo shares some of the tools that will be discussed on the evening.

1. One-Page Strategic Plan

One-page strategic plans are one of the most useful planning tools to collate your goals, objectives and how to reach them in a single, one-page summary for easy reference. They focus not only on the current environment (where are we now?), but the future (where do we want to be?) and the tactical plan (how do we get there?). Using business analysis skills and techniques to populate your one-page strategic plan, these plans help to map the strategies and actions required to get you from where you are now to where you want to be.  Having all this documented on one page makes it easy to not only understand the complete picture, but also to make any updates if things change.

Advivo Accountants and Advisors work with you (and your management team where appropriate) in a workshop environment and guides the process from start to finish.  The outcome of the workshop is a one-page strategic plan, designed specifically for your business, aligning strategies and key actions required to achieve those objectives identified during the session. Advivo can also assist with the implementation of those strategies as this is an area which can present challenges for some business owners.  For more info on our One-Page Strategic Plan offer, contact us at info@advivo.com.au

2. Magic Wand

The Magic Wand is a tool used in the discovery stage to help identify matters of significance to the business, the staff, procedures and process and clients. Using the Magic Wand, we uncover what is often hidden in the unsaid. The outcome of the Magic Wand feeds nicely into the One Page Strategic Plan and other Advivo tools.

3. Future Fitness 3-Way Report™
