Often enough, beautifully written strategies or plans will never see the light of day within an organization for lack of capacity to execute or implement. Making sure your projects run smoothly, taking care of all details, timelines and budgets to make sure everything falls into place at some point, updates on progress, and connecting with all internal and external stakeholders is what makes good planning work for you and your business, efficiently and effectively. Though anyone can fill an excel sheet, planning (and its ROI) is about the energy put into knowing every aspect and detail of a project and still being able to get into that helicopter.
