If you have made a plan and even if you are very sure of your decision-making, you should expect that the plan will not be executed as you envisioned. This is not a valid reason to avoid planning. The reason that you should plan is not to predict the future. That cannot be done with any degree of consistency. Do not expect it to happen. The axiom that validates the benefit of planning: businesses that experience excellent results do so because they make excellent decisions. Planning is the process that creates excellent decisions and therefore excellent business results. At Business Transition Consulting we help business owners institute decision-making processes that produce excellent decisions and excellent business results.
