Business Strategies for a Whole New World

January 15, 2010 at 11:36 pm Leave a comment

Welcome to the 2010 extreme makeover business world.  Suddenly, yesterday’s assumptions and strategies are left hanging, as the economy struggles, businesses close and technology and social media lurch forward.  Business is not going back to the old models.  It’s time to move on, to be proactive.   In the face of great uncertainty, there is great opportunity. 

Thinking and acting strategically have never been more important.  As I work with businesses, not for profit agencies and community groups, the single greatest focus is on positioning business for the future. Regardless of the business, organization or industry, the needs and processes are similar.

  • Evaluate your options: What is gone, what remains, what does the future look like?
  • Invent new options:  What can you do to use what you have, in new ways? What value can you offer to today’s customer?
  • Take action: Move toward the future.  Change requires action.
  • Be flexible: The path you choose may not be right, or may change dramatically. Be ready to change with it.

The times are interesting and exciting.  New opportunities are there, that never existed before.  It’s time to step out and invest in the future.
