Once upon a time you needed to plan every trip you took into an unknown area. Calculate how long it would take based on average miles per hour. Where would you find gas on the way. It often meant marking multiple pages in your Thomas guide to get from A to B.
With the advent of map apps have we lost the fundimental planning, measuring progress and executing skills?
GPS should be the acronym for : Good Planning Skills. Let's get it back!
Running a small business or operation takes the same 5 fundimental steps as planning a roadtrip did in the "dark ages".
1- Where are we going?
2- Where are we now?
3- What is the roadmap to get there?
4- Is everyone on board?
5- How do we plot our progess?
