A simple system with quick results
Traditional strategic planning is normally a time-consuming, complicated process that sucks up resources many business owners think are better spent on other things.
We agree. That’s why we developed the 60 Minute Strategic Plan, a process that is simple in format and, therefore, quick to complete, easy to communicate, and easy to adjust.
One page in one hour
Once you learn the 60 Minute Strategic Plan process (and it’s a quick study), the time to complete a first draft plan for any issue you identify will take between 30 and 60 minutes—really. That’s because you write a total of about 300 words on one page. Short and sweet gets it done.
And that’s a good thing, because the shorter your strategic plan, the more likely people will be to read and understand it. No one has the time or desire to slog through a 50-page plan—unless the poor soul is suffering from a prolonged bout of insomnia.

Strategy and tactics: a powerful formula
The 60 Minute Strategic Plan process consists of 12 steps in two stages. The first stage comprises the first six steps and is visionary in nature: a right brain, creative process. This is where you create all of the outcomes you desire for the strategic issue you identify in step 1.
