Over the last 2 quarters, I’ve reviewed or engaged in 19 budget & business planning streams. Four (4) interesting tidbits about their final budgets/plans…
- Growth companies and performance execs start with talent planning first and culture/soft skills as a compass.
- Ecosystem planning is finally recognized by more mainstream growth and enterprise organizations alike…more here later from me later this year.
- Contingency plans on tighter access to money are incorporated into business plans.
- Operational margins and profitability are more mindfully planned to position for future financing options.
Companies: $20M – $500M in annual revenue, vary by industry, nearly all growing by double digits over the last five years.
