Learn from the Past

The first step to preparing for the future is to look back at the past. Look at the past three quarters and see what worked, what didn’t, and how you can amplify the successes.

Prioritize Your Goals

Now that you’ve got a start to your Q2 plan, determine what things you want to accomplish. Start by making a list of what the company should work to achieve, and then you can organize this into different priority levels to give transparency and clarity.

Establish Accountability

Hold each “goal holder” accountable for their success. Create a weekly breakdown of how the goal will be achieved, in priority order, and be sure to have many touchpoints during the quarter to make sure everyone’s on track.

Measure, Measure, Measure

You can’t say you’ve had a successful quarter without some sort of reporting. Make sure you have ways in place to measure if and how goals are completed, and what determines if it’s been a success. This also helps as a guide when you move throughout the year.
