Strategic Planning – Preparing for the New Year

Traditional strategic and business planning is essential to strengthening any business, but it is not responsive to unknowns and risks – the things that distract owners from achieving their best-laid plans.  Lawyers do know about risks, and every day they address problems that might have been avoided through planning and knowledge.  This pragmatic workshop provided a framework for business owners ready to plan for the next year.  It asked attendees to answer questions about:

  • their ultimate goal:  where they want to end up, and how they want to exit their business
  • the sources of value in the business
  • the biggest risks to the most important sources of value
  • where they are now, what they need to take in the new year, and by when
