On today’s show we are covering the fourth segment in our mini-series on business planning. On Monday’s show we talked about the company mission. We then spoke about the ten year and the three year plan. On yesterday’s show we spoke about the one year plan. Today we’re talking about the plan for the coming quarter. 

This is where the rubber meets the road between the plan and the execution. Underpinning our process is the business planning process from several business books. The Book Traction by Gino Wickman. We use the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS), which is a set of practical tools and concepts outlined in Wickman's book to help businesses achieve their vision and goals. 

The second book is the Four Disciplines of Execution, written by Steven Covey’s son Sean Covey.
