TIME ESTIMATE - One third/Two third rule.
(If it is 3 days to launch take 1 day yourself to prep and give 2 days to your team to prep -they normally have more to do than you.

PREP MEETING - Before you even start your prep, assemble your team and tell them what you thinking of doing -you will be surprised what they can plan and do while you take the next day preppingyour definitive plan. Before you even start... What are you competitions' intentions?

How can your competition affect what you want to do?

THINK LIKE YOUR COMPETITION..

What does your market look like and where is the best part of the market for you to aim for?

What aspects of the market suit you best?

What is my competitions' MOST DANGEROUS COURSE OF ACTION?

THINK ABOUT YOUR FRIENDLY FORCES

Who is out there that would be happy to help me, 4Networkers, Friends, Existing Customers / Clients Start your planning... Question One - What are my market and competition doing and why What is my boss' intent and what is my role in it?
What is the unifying purpose?


THE MAGIC WORDS - "IN ORDER TO"


Knowing your higher intent gives you freedom of movement to exercise your judgement to make the plan work to its best effect.

Bring me a Green Tea IN ORDER TO quench my thirst...
When there is no Green Tea your team can bring water because it still fulfills your intent.
(Bring me a Green Tea - gives no intent and is open to huge failure)

What constraints are imposed upon me?

CASH constraints...
Time constraints...
Resource, people, IT, logistical constraints.

Understanding your constraints early on, means you will plan within them; or you can ask your boss to review one or more of them... Question 2
What have I been told to do an why? Ascertain the effects you need to create to achieve what your boss wants from you.

Create a definitive list of effects you want to achieve.

GO FIRM ON YOUR MISSION!

Use clear and direct language that articulates your goals and...

Identify a MAIN EFFORT

The main effort is the part of your plan that is the most crucial to success.

(This is an ACTION not a person, as an action all of your team can assist to guarantee success). Question 3

Consider.

Geographic sales zones.
Market Sectors.
PR Strategies.
Back Office Support
Legal Aspects

Where and when do the actions takeplace in relation to each other? Reporting - Set your MIS pan so you can check progress as the plan is being executed.

Boundaries - Perhaps geographical that must not be crossed. (Bordering Sales Areas)

Actions on...

(No plan survives contact with the enemy...)
Understand the actions that your competition may take to affect your plan and what you will do to counter them.

It is important to think like your competition. Question 7
What control measures do I need to impose? Pass down your instructions.

Get ready for clarification questions.

Get ready to accept suggestions from SMEs, and consider them since you gave them freedom of movement.

Be flexible.

Rest, Take stock and go talk to your team...

Believe in your mission and MAIN EFFORT, stick to them, don't let small hiccups divert you more than you need to be.
