Business Planning

Why is it needed

When Abraham Lincoln said “If I had 8 hours to chop down a tree, I would spend 6 hours sharpening the axe”, he showed he understood the benefits of planning. Too often it is seen as a distraction to getting the job done, but companies who do it regularly, have a greater focus and a better chance of success.
