Abraham Lincoln uttered these timeless words, “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”
Planning is essential for success in business. Every business must have a strategy on how they hope to achieve their vision. A strategic plan helps organisations focus their efforts on a purpose while enabling them to direct the course of their own destiny. It is therefore imperative for business leaders to arm themselves with the tools and expertise for creating and deploying strategic plans. In essence good strategic planning is like sharpening your axe.
