Small business planning for 2017

If you are a small business leader then hopefully you are planning for at least a few days to unwind as you end 2016 and begin an exciting 2017.  Thinking about January and 2017 will surely make you revisit if there are changes that you can apply to your small business that will make it more profitable and successful.

If you do not have a plan in place for how you manage, or even an approach to consider, cloud services then you should make it a priority for 2017.  The Cloud Adoption Framework for Small Business can be your guide to break down the planning elements that your small business needs to maximize its investments.

Ideally, all of your planning will be based upon your business strategy.  What are the drivers for your business?  What are the external stimuli or pressures that can force your business to react in order to stay competitive and current?

The Cloud Adoption Framework for Small Business provides small business leaders with a simple and easy to follow model that can be applied to help guide your approach to strategy creation and then identifying and aligning the activities that should be in place to execute upon your business strategy.

In 2017, you will want to ensure that your decisions are based on information.  That sounds obvious but you will want to make informed decisions based upon insight to the data, processes, services and applications that represent your business operations.  The people of your small business and their skills, knowledge and attitudes will shape how your small business operates.  Therefore, you will need to account for how cloud can impact their day to day role and anticipate what changes must be considered in order to get the most of any cloud planning.

What are your small business goals for 2017 and what changes are you considering?

If you are looking for more cloud advice for your small business in 2017 then be sure to review the Cloud Adoption Framework for Small Business which is available for download at Amazon.
