In today’s post, Simmie Adams host of upcoming MBO webinar “Unleashing the Tiger to Grow Your Independent Business,” offers actionable tips to help organizational leaders achieve strategic change.
What is your business and business development plan?
What are the right bricks to put in place to build a solid, business and business-development foundation?
There are four cornerstones and five boundary stones essential to laying out a firm foundation upon which your business and your business development structure rests to ensure its optimal success level.
With these, there are a number of solid cornerstones that will ensure the resources invested in your plan for the coming year aren’t experimental in nature, leaving you to hope the market finds you.
In fact, a volatile market, a distaste (or outright dislike) for “selling”, even personality type notwithstanding, it is possible to create an approach to business and business development that works — if you possess the will and discipline to build a plan on these four cornerstones.
These essential stones for both a strong business and a strong business development structure are:
- Market Dominating Position
- Ideal Customer/Client
- The Unwanted Pain
- Action Plan
- Boundary Stones
- Business Presence
- Deliver Solutions
- Relationship Building
These stones, when properly developed and placed, will help you build a solid business foundation for your business and business development activities. So, to understand what each of these stones entail, let us shed some light on each one.
