Excellent read. I think this has legs and would be useful not only as a framework for executives working on their strategic plan but also as a framework for consultants to develop a prescriptive approach to strategy development and implementation. The Business Hierarchy of Needs® is a tool for providing a common ground to discuss gaps in a company’s strategic plan with their actual implementation and then utilizing that analysis to develop corrective actions to return to the correct path for achieving the MIG. This is the secret sauce in a successful strategic planning consulting project.
This book fills a need and provides a new way to analyze and improve a strategic planning imitative within an organization. It also provides a logical framework for developing a strategic plan from the start and is relevant in today’s market for all types of businesses.
