Webinar Recording Details


A ten-year study of more than 100 companies showed that the number one cause of business failure is bad strategy. But, the reality is that only 3 out of every 10 managers are strategic. And when you consider that being able to set strategic direction is ten times more important to the perception of a leader’s ability than any other behavior, it’s critical that you master strategic thinking and planning.
In this webinar, you will learn a simple framework to transform strategy from a once-a-year dog-and-pony show that gets buried in a plan that never gets used to a laser-focused strategic mindset that you’ll use on a regular basis to grow your business.

Here’s what you’ll take away:

1. Why most sales and marketing plans are a complete waste of time;
2. How to create a simple one-page plan that creates competitive advantage;
3. Move from tactical to strategic by applying the three disciplines of strategic thinking;
4. Make strategic trade-offs and more effectively prioritize your activities;
5. How to say no to the 90% of stuff that eats away at your time and adds no value;
6. Understand the real difference between goals, objectives, strategies and tactics;
7. Figure out how to bring new value to your customers by differentiating yourself and your product or service from the competition.

As Deming said, “You don’t have to change. Survival is not mandatory.”
