Strategy impacts every aspect of what you do. You can take things as they come, worry about putting a plan together, or think “I don’t have time right now to put a plan together… I have to get things done.” Well if you don’t have time now to lay out a strategy and a plan to execute it, then when will you have time?
Too often organizations wait to make a plan AFTER resources have been used up, ad hoc marketing and sales efforts have failed, and/or go by trial and error.
Strategy is the alignment and focus your organization needs to stay on track, on-time, and on a path to profitably.

Your strategy gets you from where you are today to the company you want to be.
