Planning: The Heartbeat of Performance

Organizations managed by specific plan and strategy significantly out-perform less well-managed organizations of equal capabilities.  Planning and strategy become a significant competitive advantage.

This is a simple but comprehensive message.  Planning and strategy are fundamental to the competitive position of any organization.

Research shows, however, that very few organizations actually manage operations by a specific plan and strategy . . . why?

Very simple . . . focus!

In many organizations attention is centered on day-to-day operations, and leadership focus tends to be directed by situations and circumstances.  This type of focus diverts attention from organizational purpose.

The effective organization is directed by a results-based leadership culture focused on “What Matters Most.”  Planning and strategy is the results of a continuous planning process directed and supported by top leadership.

“But how do we do that?”

Leadership Management, Inc. has answered that question for organizations around the world with a practical, common-sense, planning model that fosters buy-in at every level of the organization.

I would give my right arm for the simplicity on the other side of complexity.
