Create a game plan.

 

Every team needs to have a game plan that can lead the team to victory—a plan that maximizes its strengths and minimizes its weaknesses. The team must modify and adapt the game plan to match the capabilities of its current competition. This plan must be flexible, so managers can make changes right up until game time if new information about the competition becomes available.

Game plans are used in the business world as well. They’re often referred to as “business strategy” or “capital growth initiatives.” Sometimes the game plan consists of annual goals for a particular department or manager. They all serve the same essential purpose: To establish the path forward for everyone in the organization to follow.
