The Online business environment is becoming increasingly competitive. Who will survive long term? Intelligent, that’s who. The smartest online businesses have a strategy of development of the Internet driving course and successful.
If you do not know where you’re going, any road you there. This is an old saying, and that also applies to the online world, as happens elsewhere. You can not predict the future is another quote I often hear when challenging the merits of strategic planning. I think this is true, but we continue to believe that the business is online or not, can benefit from having a strategy that is the test of time. Ok Let’s see how we can develop our online strategy.
The strategy is to win. It is also the long term. So plan to win in a competitive situation, what strategy aims to achieve. So what process we go through the development of our online strategy?
Key issues the strategy helps maintain a clear focus on a particular issue. For example, how can we transform our business to adapt to changing customer needs without running up the ISTC? It is a matter for discussion.
The last point I would make the current situation or a situation analysis. Do not be tempted to take this step. It is often tempting to go into the future an interesting thought. However, it is important to understand exactly where the current characteristics are crucial for building the tension now and the desired future state.
With a solid base on this, look to the future. Where do we want our online business? Who are the actors in this success? How will we know if we have succeeded? Therefore, make declarations of intent with all stakeholder interests accommodated.
Now the strategy decisions of real progress. Great strategies differentiate a company from its competitors. What are the unique assets that your company could be used to bridge the gap between today and tomorrow? These decisions are critical because they shape how your strategy types.
I would like to make a quick note at this stage. There must be a tension between where you are now, and the desired future state. Too little tension and you can not sell yourself short. Too much and your strategy should be seen as unattainable, and shelf-ware. So I keep asking yourself, “this will be difficult to achieve and we can do?”
The last step is to create an action plan. This is what to do to get the implementation going strategy. No need to define each individual project and the next 3-5 years. The world is changing and we must adapt.
A clearly articulated strategy online will join the team behind a better future. Therefore, the strategy is important. Involving business people in an ideal they find attractive and that aligns its activities. Equally important is that it provides a benchmark to help managers decide what to do and, equally important, that you should not do.
The online world is changing. More and more people every year to explore their requirements online, and are still willing to buy online. So the first step in any strategy development process is to examine the current situation. What is the current competitive environment seems (internal and external), and what challenges? Then, to develop by focusing on the issue.
