It’s that time of the year again. Q3 results are in and thoughts turn to next year’s business plans.
I have decided to draft a business plan for my final MBA project, rather than a traditional academic piece of work. Having spent the last two years discovering what can go amiss in engineering consultancies, I’m trying my hand at coming up with a model which might better suit the world today. I’m currently looking at vision, strategy and mission statements. Prior to the MBA, I thought they were mindless pieces of fluff. At some stages during the MBA, I started to feel quite evangelical about them. I’ve finally settled somewhere in between – useful things, but no need to shove them down the throats of your employees.
