Do you break out in a cold sweat at the thought of planning for next year? Does the mention of "strategic planning" make you choke?
I have good news for you. You probably don't need the everyone-together-all-day planning event that results in a pretty document added to your shelf. You do if you have been CEO at the company for less than a year and have not laid out your vision and plan, or if the business is subject to major changes in the near future (or has undergone such recently). These circumstances require "the big plan."
Otherwise, you need a straight-forward action plan that shows everyone where you're headed and what's most important. But first, you need crystal clarity for yourself.
