Sep 12 Seasons of Business: Begin NOW for 2015!
How about focusing your 12-Seasons-of-Business on the beginning of a three-year upturn in most of our business markets? Seems like something worthwhile!
As we’ve previously pointed out, the prognosticators are seeing rapid growth for 2015-2016-2017 after a hopefully slight but still real slowdown in Q4-2014 into the beginning of 2015. So the thought occurs that perhaps we should begin our 2015 planning/budgeting now, a bit earlier than usual. Perhaps focus on how we’re planning to grow, which market segments, where to place emphasis, preparing for when best to add people, capital equipment or operating space, how to shore up our cash-flow facilities, and similar things.
By beginning now and remaining a bit loose until year-end in terms of finalizing our plans, we’ll probably evolve much more meaningful and effective results in 2015 and subsequent years.
Once again, by pro-acting in our planning, we’ll probably achieve flexible yet more certain results.
With best regards, Kraig
