The One Page Business Plan® - A Discipline for Growth and Success!
November 20, 2013
Hosted by Marcia Zidle
The last three years have been a wild rollercoaster and there are no clear signs that there is smooth sailing just around the corner. But some businesses have done better than others...much better! Most likely those businesses were headed up by leaders who are focused and disciplined. In our November show, Jim Horan, best-selling author, professional speaker, consultant and creator of The One Page Business Plan® will introduce us to this simple, but very powerful and practical planning process. The One Page Business Plan is much more than a simple planning process. It is a framework for continuously moving to the next level of discipline. The process distills out what is critical and important…leaving only the most significant aspects of your plan for critical review, dialog and decision. One Page Business Plans create a culture of discipline, execution and success.
