The Business Vision
In a recent online poll 8 out of 10 garage owners said they didn’t have a business plan.
If you don’t know where you are going, you are very unlikely to get there.
Are you one of them?
Would you set off on a journey without knowing the destination?
So why is it that so many garage owners do not have a business plan?
The Business Plan or Vision is the destination for the Business.
Business planning can be compared to setting the direction of travel for your business.
These GPS coordinates result in a planned route to your destination.
It is not the actual path you will take, as there will be many obstacles in your way, and other factors to consider which constantly result in you correcting your course.
We have all heard stories about people who die on mountains or on the trail, because of poor planning, not having the skills or experience for the route taken. Tragically they are often found just a few feet away from safety.
The same is true in business, without the correct training, skills and planning it is luck that will decide your fate, often agonisingly close to the path which would have resulted in success.
Only What Get Measured Gets Managed
Having a plan means you can set goals, targets and other Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) that can be managed.
Too many small businesses use the end of year accounts as the sole barometer of success. This is a bit like playing a game all year and you only get to see the score after the game finishes.
Would your chances of winning increase if you knew the score every day, week, month, quarter?
