Tactical Planning

Unapologetic by Kelly Swingler

You’ve probably heard it said that change is the one constant in business currently, and that’s true, it’s also true for our lives outside of work.

Change doesn't have to be hard... by Kelly Swingler

Change has fast become the one constant in businesses today, but can there be a point when too much change is no longer good for business?

Do you plan tactically or strategically? by Roderic Yapp

We are far better at planning for the short-term than we are for the long-term.

Think about when you get in the car. If you don’t know where you are going, you tap in the details to a sat-nav system to tell you the route. You might have an advanced system that updates itself to find quicker routes if there is traffic.

You probably know what you’re doing this weekend and maybe even the weekend after. You might even have planned your summer holiday.
