The Four Decisions™ refer to the critical decisions that growth companies must get right to maximize their revenue, profit and time.
What is the One Page Strategic Plan?
Based on the Gazelles Four Decisions and Rockefeller Habits developed by Verne Harnish, the One Page Strategic Plan is a simple yet powerful tool that helps you edit your vision and strategy down to a single, action-oriented page.
The One Page Strategic Plan is the culmination of the four critical business decisions (People, Strategy, Execution, Cash) that growth companies must get right to maximize their revenue, profit and time. The One Page Strategic Plan will help you and your management team get aligned, focused, and accountable, working with purpose toward common goals.
