Everybody needs a plan. Plans help people succeed. An action plan is, without a doubt, the most valuable component in any business strategy. Consider it a road map full of stops before you reach the destination of success. The term “road map” is a poor descriptor, however. Think of it more like a location-aware GPS device with enabled turn-by-turn navigation and you’ll get a better idea of how important it is.
Road map’s are universal, which is great because it means anybody pick one up and use it relatively easily but, they are also static, or unchangeable. Those adjectives don’t look very good describing an action plan. A GPS is dynamic, like an action plan should be. An action plan should be personal to an individual or a business. It should contain specific tasks, a time frame for those tasks, and a budget. It is a good idea to refer back to the original plan every so often to analyze progress, make additions based on new information, or scrap the plan entirely and start fresh.
