It seems so simple. Having complete buy-in from everyone on your management team is essential.
The only way to get there is by having a plan. Not your plan. Everyone’s plan. At their inception new businesses are hungry, energized and challenged.
No doubt the toughest budget in most businesses is the first one. After that one, over time it becomes far too easy to allow compromise, and to tolerate mediocrity.
Plans with clear short, medium and long terms goals and objectives created by the Team and accepted by the key stakeholders insure that you are always on message.
