Strategic Growth Plan: 2018

Strategic Growth Plan: 2018

It’s a brand new year and January is the perfect time to take stock of your business and make a strategic plan for growth in 2018.

Success depends on your ability to look, with a critical eye, at all the things that might need to be improved and upgraded. Using a tested and proven comprehensive analytical approach will identify all aspects of your practice that can contribute to the growth you seek. The real question is: where do you start? How do you know what to focus on, and what priorities can help you make the growth goals that you envision?

Over years of experience working with doctors to grow dental practices I have come up with customized tools for analysis that can be used easily by you to comprehensively evaluation the the current health and well being of your practice. Asking the right questions will help us define the ideal solutions that enable you to reach the fullest potential of your business.

I recommend to every doctor I meet that they start off analyzing their business by completing a Strategic Planning: Step 1 worksheet.

This form can be downloaded here and once you’ve filled it out I will conduct a comprehensive consultation, including an onsite needs assessment, to help you get a more complete picture of growth solutions for your practice.  Please keep in mind too that a customized plan is made uniquely for you, it is not a cookie cutter approach that puts the same exact solutions together for every practitioner. The other analysis tools I like to use provide even more detailed insight include the Patterson Preliminary Design Checklist, Practice Vital Statistics Survey, and the Practice Growth Survey  all can be downloaded from my website
