Get serious about your strategic planning meetings

Businesses should take strategic planning seriously. One way is to hold meetings focused on plotting your company’s future. To get the most from these gatherings, follow some best practices for any formal business meeting. Set a clear and feasible agenda so there will be no surprises. If necessary, lay down rules to preserve decorum and prevent (or resolve) conflicts. Choose a facilitator to oversee the meeting. If no one at your company feels up to the task, you could engage a qualified outside consultant. Record the minutes of the meeting to document what took place and which (if any) decisions were made.
