As we begin 2023, do you know where you want to be at the end of the year? Here’s why you need a blueprint for your business, and how to make one.

Defining a Business Blueprint

A blueprint in your business means knowing where you want to go. Here at Business Growth Curator, we recommend having a three year vision, objectives and key results for each year, and 90 day (quarterly) targets.  Can you see why we focus on having a blueprint first in our businesses?  If you don’t know where you want to go, it is impossible to know whether or not you’re headed in the right direction.  However, having a blueprint isn’t enough.

Why You Need a Plan to Go With Your Blueprint

When you want to build a house, you usually go to an architect with all your ideas and discuss what you want. Then the architect will draw up a sketch of the home, and you’ll work with them to modify it until it is the exact vision. This becomes your blueprint.

But if you handed that blueprint as-is to a general contractor, they would not be able to immediately build a home. They need plans for HVAC, water, electricity, and all the elements that go into a home.

This is similar to having a blueprint and a plan in your business.
