A planning mnemonic from Marc Benioff of Salesforce.com

  • Vision: What do you want? Write it down in 10 to 15 words
  • Values: What is most important about that vision? What are the values of the vision? Is it growth, is it quality, is it excellence? Write those things down and prioritize them.
  • Methods: How are you going to achieve it? What are the actions that you’re going to specifically take? In priority, write them down.
  • Obstacles: What is preventing you from achieving that outcome – right now? Write it down. What other obstacles may occur?
  • Measures: How will you know if you’re successful? What are the measurements of success? Write it down.

MUST READ book: The 4 Disciplines of Execution: Achieving Your Wildly Important Goals

The 4 Disciplines of Execution: Achieving Your Wildly Important Goals

This is really one of the best business book I’ve ever read. Why? Because it goes to the core of strategy implementation. In short (but don’t think you’ve read the book now, please!):

  1. Define your wildly important goals
  2. Act on the “lead measures” (indicators of progress) rather than “lag measures” (rear-view results of what has been done)
  3. Keep a compelling scoreboard that simply cannot be ignored
  4. Create a cadence of accountability of frequent accounting.
