E89 | Lean Strategic Planning for Small Businesses Lean Out Your Business Podcast

    • Entrepreneurship

Hello and welcome to part three of our four-part series on what it takes to sustainably scale your business!
 
In today’s episode of the Lean Out Yout Business Podcast, I'm going to walk you through our Lean Strategic Planning System for Small Businesses. Because while strategic planning is important, the reality is that most planning systems out there are not really designed for a small business. 
 
There are very tactical planning systems that are designed for personal productivity and they don't really work well when you get them into a team environment. Or there are these really big strategic planning practices that come out of the multi-billion dollar businesses, but they completely could overkill your type and size of business
 
So, let’s dive into the Lean Strategic Planning System and learn how you can implement it in your business model, so you can avoid burnout and get the most out of your business systems
 
Topics discussed:
 
(1:19) - The importance of planning
(6:06) - What Lean Strategic Planning System is and how it can help you scale your business 
(17:39) - The importance of strategy 
(18:37) - The four pillars of the Lean Strategic Planning System
(19.05) - Sneak peek from reimagine retreat 
(21.22) - The context pillar 
(21:46) - The clarity pillar
(22:30) - The commitment pillar
(23:53) - The kaizen pillar
(27.19) - Sneak peek from our next session
