The starting point for any business or organization is an effective set of aligned business strategies
The applies to non-profit organizations and educational institutions as well as businesses.
Key questions to answer as part of refining existing or developing new business strategies include:

- What are the goals of the organization? Today? In the future?
- Which goals are being met? Which aren’t? Why?
- Is the team aligned and focused? What are the distractions? What actions must be taken to align the team?
- What are the specific, measurable, and time-bounded strategies that need to be put in place to meet the goals?
- How will progress be measured and monitored?

The right business strategies will enable the business or organization to:
