“A goal without a plan is just a wish.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

The world is changing fast, companies need to adapt and sometimes modify their strategy. But the world is changing so fast, that you are sometimes more focused on reacting than planning for the long term. Taking the time to look at the future and assess major changes – technological, new investment, … - is a complex process. You might think that having a long term business plan is useless as future becomes too unpredictable but we strongly believe that if your boat does not have a course that you define, you will not be able to reach your final destination. Furthermore, business plans have several other benefits such as:

  • Allowing your key management to reflect on where your final destination should be
  • Clearly define your goals and help communicate them both inside and outside of your organization
  • Federate your teams around a common long-term objective
  • Enhance collaboration between departments as business plans usually have impacts across the organization.
