Developing a Strategy

In order for a plan to be successful, it have to answer three questions:

  1. What is the mission of the business?
  2. What goals should be met to accomplish this mission?
  3. What strategies should be employed to achieve these goals?

The first step is to be focused in defining the company’s mission. It should be a clear, succinct statement of the company’s reason for existence.

For example, the mission statement of The Walt Disney Company is “To Make People Happy.”

Difference between goals, objectives, tactics and strategy:

  • Goals are things we intend to achieve.
  • Objectives are the steps along the way toward achieving goals.
  • Tactics are the methods we use to accomplish objectives.
  • A Strategy is the overarching plan to use our unique competitive advantages to achieve our stated goals through the use of specific and measurable objectives and tactics in pursuit of our mission as a company.
