The challenge with Strategic Adaptability is knowing what could be unexpected.

Focusing on day-to-day business and growth goals is essential to business success but what tools do you have in place to manage change?

To navigate the constant flux of today’s business we have learned we need to be flexible and anticipate change.

Strategic adaptability is a planned ability to anticipate change effectively in the business and environment to react better when unexpected changes happen.

In traditional strategic planning we would add a percentage increase to anticipate next year’s costs but nowadays changing customer preferences, emerging opportunities and threats can cause a shift in some of this information.

The challenge with Strategic Adaptability is knowing what could be unexpected.

Of course, we can’t anticipate changes or problems that don’t show up in research or we don’t have an intuitive hit on. However, we can create systems or methods to respond to unexpected change within your business.

Doing a Strategic One Page assessment can give you the ability to navigate through such challenges by creating an environment of focus and alignment, improved communication throughout the business, and new quarterly “re-sets” and accountability “check-in’s” to keep everyone on track.

By having a One Page Strategic Plan you can not only create the environment of Strategic Adaptability but get everyone on the same “One Page” vision of the business helping them own their part of the business growth and giving your business a well-defined competitive edge.

Know Your Talents strategy experts would love to help you create this one-page road map for your company. Reach out today and ask about the One Page Strategic Plan. What a great way to start 2022.
