"How you think is how you plan is how you execute."
Our professional lives have changed.
Where once there were layers of middle-managers...they're long gone. In their absence, all professionals are now responsible for planning, plans & effort execution. Which has created an attendant problem. Most professionals are functionally trained (e.g., marketing, finance, IT)...and are "accidental" planners...frequently ill-prepared for planning the same efforts whose success depends on their functional contributions.
Given that most professionals receive little training in modern planning practices...is it sensible they are expected to create plans with maximum competency? Probably not—since there isn't necessarily a relationship between functional skills and effort planning & execution ability.
- Because of these limitations, it is unfortunate that so many preventable problems with projects negatively impact well-intentioned, otherwise accomplished professionals.
In today’s intense, maximum-pressure, always-on, 7x24 work-world...professionals with planning responsibilities thrust upon them have a universal need for easy-to-learn and easy-to-use ways to design success in to planning, plans and effort execution...while driving cost, time & risk...out. Plan On a Page—POP—is an easy-to-learn, proven solution for such problems; it is systematic, repeatable & predictable.
Using POP, professionals apply substantiated practices that were built and refined by decades of success. POP's introduction of Planning System Dynamics provides practitioner's with distinct professional advantages based on unparalleled insights and awareness into the otherwise baffling, non-linear nature of planning choices and implications of changes.
- The Plan On a Page starts with basics. There are neither prerequisites nor Ivory Tower theories.
Whether you're an Old Pro, a Newbie, or Somewhere in the Middle—in the Plan On a Page, you’ll discover and use A New Way of Thinking About Planning, Plans & Effort Execution that's proven by the harsh judge of decades of pragmatic use in Silicon Valley, global financial institutions, worldwide telecommunications carriers, start-ups and many other similarly demanding environments.
Tempered in these pressure-filled, unforgiving settings—the Plan On a Page has been used for decades by hundreds of professionals in dozens of countries to plan, launch & successfully execute thousands of efforts.
- Why is planning within one page important? Because “If a plan doesn’t work on one page, it won’t improve with length nor age.”
