As a business coach, consultant, and project manager, James helps people and organizations move ideas from the dreaming and planning stages to full implementation. He sets goals, plans strategically, and makes things happen…for himself and those around him.

James' easy to read, step-by-step process is exactly what I needed to help me take all the ideas and goals that have been running through my head - and posted on notes all over my desk and computer - and put them down into an action plan.
More important is that in going through the book (and as a previous reviewer said - it's more like my workbook with all the notes I've made in my book) the action plan reflects my vision, mission and my core values which will help me stay motivated and moving forward.
I'm actually excited for the new year and the opportunities coming my way.
The kryptonite that threatens to kill the dreams of every entrepreneur is strategic planning. Many aspiring entrepreneurs create no plan and try shooting from the hip, so effort and resources are wasted or unfocused. Others get bogged down in a too-detailed planning process, and the plan never gets executed.
The antidote for this kryptonite is simple strategic planning. In this book, James Woosley, a seasoned planner with experience in the military, systems project management for major corporations, and business coaching for hundreds of businesses, explains the concept he has taught for years to many entreprenuers. Rather than the traditional approach of a business plan or a detailed GANTT chart, Woosley provides a streamlined approach that is more practical and action-oriented. The Simple Strategic Plan (SSP) is a step-by-step process for taking an idea putting it into action, for both profit and purpose.
This could have been a very dry book, but Woosley keeps it fun with plenty of real-life illustrations and just the right amount of cape-and-tights stories.
Although it is targeted especially for a business start up, this book will be helpful for those in organizations of any size who need to be more entrepreneurial. Conquer your kryptonite and be a superhero!
This has been a life-changing book for me. It is an entertaining, easy read - full of great wisdom, but without pretentious & impossible advice. Practical steps are outlined in a simple, 'baby-steps' format, very similar to Dave Ramsey's early "Financial Peace" book. I used this like a workbook; highlighting, scrawling notes in the margin, & completing the questions & steps along the way right there in the (small) space provided.
As I worked thru Woosley's process in this book, I was hit again & again with "aha!" moments, much like the common-sense, simple, & practical thought-transformation I got from Dave Ramsey's books. Just like Dave's material, it's not rocket-science; Woosley simply presents & packages what we all know we ought to do but don't, into a process we can actually accomplish!
