How to Write the Ultimate 1 Page Strategic Business Plan

You've probably had many dreams of where you would like to take your small business...

It could be that you want to make a 6 or 7 figure income...

Or, it could be that you want to expand your business and succeed greatly...

Or maybe you just want to get more customers for your business...

Whatever your goals and visions are for your business, the one thing you will need to get there is a great plan.

Think about it for a minute...

Have ever wanted to get somewhere, and you didn't have the directions to get there? How frustrating was that?

Didn't it save you so much time and frustration, when you could easily use your GPS to help you get to your location?

A strategic plan is the GPS for your business. A strategic plan is the roadmap that will:

  • Tell you what to do, step-by-step, in your business until you reach all your goals.
  • Help you identify the most important things you should be doing so that you don't waste your valuable time and money.
  • Help you break up your key actions steps into small chunks, so that you can do a little at a time, until you eventually reach all of your business goals.

Do I Need a 20 Page Business Plan? No Way!

Use this 1 Page Strategic Plan Instead...

Many people believe that you need pages and pages of complex information in order to build a successful business.

But that is just not true...

Think about it... Do you read the 50 page manual that comes with all your electronic products? Or do you simply just follow the 1 page basic instructions that comes with the box?

They are both helpful, but the 1 page instructions get you started much quicker, and helps you to enjoy your product much faster.

In the same way, this 1 Page Strategic Business Plan will give you everything you need to reach all of your business goals.

Also, because it's so simple, it makes it easier to do everything you are supposed to do to succeed in your business.

Why is This Strategic Business Plan Just 1 Page?

Since 20% of the things we do bring 80% of the results, we've created a 1 Page Strategic Plan that focuses only on the Top 20% that bring the biggest results.

Most business plans are full of a lot of unnecessary information, and they make you do a lot of steps that just waste your valuable time.

This 1 Page Strategic Plan only describes the most important and powerful steps you should take to help you achieve your 6 - 7 figure goals, or help you achieve all of your other goals.

Does this 1 Page Strategic Business Plan Really Work?

Absolutely!

This 1 Page strategic plan has helped many business owners take their business to the next level in their business by helping them:

  • Increase revenue by 30 - 50%.
  • Operate more efficiently
  • Get more customers
  • Increasing profits by helping them use their money more wisely,
  • And much more...

Will It Work for Me?

  • If you're a small business owner or entrepreneur, and you have important goals that you want to achieve - then this 1 Page Strategic Plan will help you succeed.
  • If you're a person that wants to start a new business, but you want a roadmap to help guarantee your success, then this 1 Page Strategic Plan will help create that roadmap for you.
  • If you want to get yourself and your business to a new level of success, this 1 Page Strategic Business Plan, will lay out a step-by-step plan to show you everything you need to do.

There are 2 types of business plans:

  • Business plans to get you business funding and
  • A Strategic plan to help you succeed in your business.

The "How to Write the Ultimate Strategic Plan" course will show you how to guarantee the success of your business, so that you can see all of your business goals, visions and dreams become a reality.

Project Prioritisation Using A Strategic Framework

Portfolio Management Overview

Is there a mad rush at the start of the financial planning season to allocate budget for next years projects? Despite this mad rush, is there always CAPEX left in the budget simply because there have not been enough approved business cases to spend it? Are there more projects in progress than actually got delivered last year? Do projects actually reflect the strategic intent of the organisation or are they indeed more a reflection of the needs of the person who shouts loudest?

Typically decision making is made in discrete jumps without referencing the longer-term aims of the organisation. Leakage of ideas and projects both in and out of the pipeline can then substantially reduce the potential value created for the organisation.

We take a lifecycle view. We recognise that throughput, from conception of the value proposition to delivery and then retirement, is a key source of credibility for the organisation and Portfolio Management. To manage the leakage of ideas, products and projects both into and out of the roadmap, we reference along the lifecycle the strategic intent of the organisation, to ensure that there is continuous alignment and value generated.

Fundamentally, Portfolio Management has two questions to answer- do we have a balanced portfolio of activity based on ROI and risk, and secondly what activity shall we take to the next stage? We divide this into a lifecycle into five stages that we abbreviate to the "IFPOD" framework:

  • Innovate Approach: Driving lessons learnt, failed(!) experiments, successful proof of concepts, validated business models and minimum viable products.

  • Feasibility approach:  Reviewing scalable implementation pilots, defining business cases and doing impact assessments.

  • Programme Approach: Delivering Products,  Programmes and Projects according to ROI and risk according to information presented in business cases.

  • Operational approach: Optimising a return on investment through continuous improvement and managing expectations.

  • Decommissioning approach: (Managing technology debt) Assessing whether products or services still deliver value and selecting those services that are candidates for decommissioning, to restart the cycle again.

To enable this lifecycle view we need to implement:

  • Governance: Effective executive decision making.

  • Demand Management: Marshalling, triaging and prioritising competing requests for resources.

This course is the overview of Portfolio Management and is the first in a series of modules that covers the IFPOD framework. The Overview includes:

  • Options management

  • High and low risk management

  • Decision frame of reference

  • Budget allocation

  • Balancing the portfolio over a 5 year planning horizon

  • Getting started with "Strategy On A Page"

  • The modules that complete the rest of the IFPOD framework and enablers are found here: https://bta.news/z7g . Benefits of applying the IFPOD Framework workshop techniques:

The right data to enable executive decisions ROI / Risk.

  • Reduce the forecast error in assessing the value and outcomes in business cases through better risk management.

  • Enable effective decision making through governance - ask the right questions, provide criteria for assessment and define decision rights.

Accelerate more rewarding products or projects

  • Use of the latest proven methods to improve throughput and quickly make decisions

  • Create options to choose from rather than first business case "past the post".

Stop wasteful activity sooner

  • Reference Strategic documents in the negotiation and prioritisation of the next tranche of work to be started.

  • Review the value realisation of projects to ensure they are meeting the target and decide GO/ NO-GO.

Balance the short-term and the long-term

  • Balance your portfolio of activity according to the risk appetite of the Decision Makers

  • Ensure the right criteria are being applied in the right context to make effective decisions.

  • Create dashboards that help Decision Makers understand the relative position of their portfolio

Welcome to Strategic Grant Planning & Management, the Stress Free Way

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS COURSE DOES NOT INCLUDE THE QUALITY IMPROVEMENT AND GRANT READINESS SECTIONS THAT ARE INCLUDED IN ANOTHER OF MY COURSES, THAT INCLUDES ALL THREE SECTIONS.

This unique course is based on a system I used and adapted for my employers and clients since 1989. It is unique in that it gives you proprietary grant management tools to:

  • win grants
  • receive grant awards
  • track every aspect of the proposal preparation and submission process
  • organize and keep current every piece of data that you might need to use in any proposal
  • plan funding for several years in advance
  • choose 
    • the right funder
    • for the right program
    • at the right time, and 
    • in the right sequence
  • report outcomes and show the funders that you were a good steward of their money

FOR EXAMPLE: If you've ever applied to Funder A for program expenses only to find out, too late, that Funder A was the ONLY ONE who would fund your construction or administration costs, while Funder B would gladly have funded your program expenses, you can appreciate how important it is to plan carefully, especially when future funding will be affected.

If you've ever wished you had a way to choose...

  • which funder
  • for which program
  • in which sequence
  • and when

THIS IS THE COURSE FOR YOU!

This Strategic Planning course was developed for and adapted to many different types of NPOs over 25 years. You won't find this system anywhere else.

As a grant writer, nonprofit, or consultant, you will find this course gives you a complete solution for developing a system of grants management and strategic planning. It includes a sequence of data management and tracking forms, three funder-selection calculators, and a system to tie them all together into stress-free, grant planning and management system. You'll be so organized that you and your teammates will actually be able to take your lunch breaks. And, never again will you have to spend frantic hours in crisis-mode, trying to get your proposal submitted by the deadline.

**********

If you've ever run into delays getting data, budget, signatures, reviews or approvals with a fast approaching deadline...

Stress-Free Strategic Grant Planning and Readiness will provide you a truly stress-free planning and management system, including:

  • the forms and a database, to manage your entire grant funding system
  • funding opportunity calculators that you will use to weigh the fit between your programs' goals and each funder's goals and to help you choose the right funder, for the right program, at the right time, and in the right sequence.

This is especially valuable for organizations that have a large number of grant applications and multiple projects going on at any given time.

  • How to IMPLEMENT this proven proposal-writing management process
  • WHO belongs on your proposal-writing and management teams
  • What to include in your proposal writing and management POLICIES & PROCEDURES
  • How to manage each phase of your PROPOSAL-MANAGEMENT PROCESS
  • How to establish CRITERIA for choosing your funding sources
  • How to AVOID SUBMITTING MULTIPLE APPLICATIONS for the same RFP
  • How to DECIDE WHICH RFP to apply for, for each program or project
  • How to DETERMINE WHEN to apply for each grant you have identified
  • How the tools in the Strategic Planning Toolkit (included) are used to create a system that flows SMOOTHLY AND STRESS-FREE

And to wrap all of this together, the grant management system provides sample (editable) written procedures for smooth-flowing processes from the moment you begin to choose a funder to the moment you submit the proposal to the funder.

The system ensures that your grant applications will be error free, thoroughly reviewed, checked for accuracy and completeness and submitted error free and with essentially no stress or last minute crises (conditions most likely to cause errors.)

I've successfully implemented this system in small and large organizations. It's flexible enough to accommodate the many unique aspects of different nonprofits' management practices.

You'll learn how to use the strategic planning and management tools. These tools provide storage for your most current data, to grab and insert in your proposals and budgets. They also provide the tracking records needed to keep your proposal moving through the writing, review, editing, and submission stages. In addition you'll have three different methods of evaluating your programs to match RFAs and identify the best fits.

Funding, as you know, is not just the result of submitting a qualifying proposal, but of developing relationships and credibility.

When your organization is able to show a funder that you've covered all the essentials and are operating at the highest standards, you improve your credibility in the eyes of funders. Relationships, on the other hand, you'll have to build yourself. Begin with this system. 

With this system, you can organize your nonprofit in ways that will make your competition wonder what you've got that they don't have.

Not a bad spot to be in.
