Wherever you are at in your business, use the following steps:
Clarify what you want to achieve (goals),
the path you will take to get there (strategy),
who you will take along with you (talent),
what needs to be done (plan),
how you will do those things (tactics),
be consistent in your approach (brand),
do what you’ve written down (execution),
learn how to do it better the next time (innovation).
If you repeat those steps over and over, you will successfully take on larger and larger roles in your organization.
