It is often said that ‘No plan survives the contact with the enemy’.
Many times, it also becomes true for those who are starting up their first business. When it comes to a start-up business, each and every one has a battle-plan so to speak .i.e A plan of action and execution.
Just as I said before, the battle plan may not always work…… then comes the need to tweaking your original strategy to fit your unique position, Leveraging all your options (falling short of the desired mark ups) and improving upon the existing products with a very tight margin of error……
Hitting the deadlines on time and getting the product out of the door can be a nightmare…..One that would be lived over and over; with that however comes the true strength of the partnerships. Strong teams refocus and march forward while the one holding over tenuously fall apart…..When that happens it is up to the Leader to restructure and organize the efforts to galvanize those with strong motives.
Lesson: What can go wrong will go wrong; It is upto you and your team to steer relentlessly…… Whatever happens… 😀
