Strategic Planning

The strategic planning process is an extremely important executive function. The most enduring companies plan on 3-5 year, one year, and 90-day horizons. Energy is put into developing key objectives every quarter, and achievements are managed weekly. A well written strategic plan is the one document that can be used to achieve the following: Align the efforts of the entire workforce Reinforce the culture of the  organization Share management's view of where the company is and their vision of where the company is going Define long term and short term goals Set clear, measurable milestones that mark progress towards important goals Define metrics that can be used daily/weekly/monthly to measure short term progress Define clear accountability for goals and objectives.

Rick on Strategic Planning

For a preview of our strategic planning approach, here is a keynote presentation given by Rick Tifone, to the Council of MLS in September 2014 in Los Angeles:
"Rick, Al and I wanted to thank you for your guidance in the development of our improved business strategy and our new strategic plan. The changes made to our value proposition and value chain are paying off in terms of higher profits,greater customer satisfaction and happier employees. Thanks for keeping us focused on our sandbox and the continued implementation of our plan.":           Bob Faletti, Principal, Blue Archer
Rick, I just wanted to say a heartfelt “thank you” for all the hard work and expertise you provided during the development of our 10-year Strategic Plan.  My goal has been to take our $10MM company and grow it to $40MM over the next five years.  However, without a solid plan, this would be impossible.  Your proprietary Strategic Planning Process, plus your guidance and direction, were the key ingredients to the successful plan you helped us develop. I’m told that I have fairly “strong” personality; so it was going to take someone with equally strong character traits and a gentle touch to fight through the fairly grueling process that real strategic planning often is. Rick, you’re expertise and real experience as a business leader and owner is, I believe, what sets you apart. Thank you for your continuing contribution to the success of my organization.”           Brenton Mix, Chief Executive Officer, TMG Marketing
“We appreciate all the help from Rick Tifone.  He was a great match for our team and was very flexible to adapt to the dynamic schedules of our management team.  We look forward to continued work with Rick as we execute our plan and we would highly recommend Rick to any business that is developing a strategic plan.  Thanks again.”           Jonathan Klorfein Director of Client Services, Labor Finders
