  • How to Survive, Reposition, and Thrive -- Even When Facing Economic Uncertainties… Preface During this period of economic downturn, businesses of all sizes face critical issues and unique challenges that require well-developed plans and well-defined problem solving approaches. With well-developed plans and problem solving approaches, business owners and executives increase their chances for survival. In most large businesses, strategic planning is a necessity, and therefore, a common practice. In fact, strategic planning in many large organizations becomes a way of life, and its CEOs view it as their major role. Owners/CEOs of small businesses, however, do not view strategic planning as a necessity. They view it as a luxury. In many cases, an entrepreneur claims that he does not have the time for strategic planning since he is too busy "working in his business, not on his business." He relies on his gut instincts to support and justify the viability of his business decisions. He recalls that his gut instincts in other matters have served him well in the past; so, why change. Making decisions based on gut feelings alone is generally an unwise business practice since it is comparable to playing a game of Russian roulette! Without a clear plan of action, the potential for an entrepreneur to be impulsive or reactive is much greater. In today's economic turmoil, an entrepreneurial business owner without a clearly articulated strategy may run the risk of losing his company. The key to business success lies in the ability of the entrepreneur to plan, implement, execute, evaluate, and adjust his business strategies. After all, what are the chances of a government bailout for the owners of small businesses? Realistically, the chances of a government bailout for small businesses are slim to none… Consequently, the only bailout plan that is or will be available to help you make it through the economic uncertainty is the one that you initiate and execute yourself! The challenge of initiating and executing a bailout plan for your small business is a daunting task---a task that is almost impossible to complete successfully unless you have had extensive, prior experience and/or direction that can guide you through the strategic planning process. Creating a detailed “battle plan” would seem like a logical first step for any business owner. However, one of the key findings in Deloitte's survey of private company owners and managers i is that many of them simply do not know the most effective strategies that would © 2009 Copyrighted by Terry H.

In fact, the survey reveals that many business owners want to do the right things better, but they are uncertain about what the right things are to do! They lack a Strategic Action Plan! This complementary Special Report entitled, How to Survive, Reposition, and Thrive -- Even When Facing Economic Uncertainties, presents an overview of the process known as strategic planning. The Report defines the steps in the strategic planning process that are critical to the development of a Strategic Action Plan. The Strategic Action Plan, or the "roadmap," lays out a clear, concise path between the current position of a company and the vision it has for the company’s future position. The Strategic Action Plan lists measureable objectives and recommends key strategic initiatives that assist entrepreneurs in navigating their businesses effectively through these uncertain economic times. This Report demonstrates how the strategic planning process can help an organization deal more effectively and more proactively with the difficult issues and challenges that the organization faces. After completing the strategic planning process, an organization will have a framework for articulating its values, purpose, strengths/weaknesses, and objectives. The Special Report, How to Survive, Reposition, and Thrive -- Even When Facing Economic Uncertainties, presents the process that enables an organization to make better decisions that minimize possible risks and seize valuable opportunities. The process also helps an organization develop the answers to the major questions: What do we need or want to accomplish, and how are we going to accomplish it?
