Build Your Company Like a Jigsaw Puzzle

Consider doing this for your next quarterly or annual strategic planning meeting. Leave the session with ONLY 10 core projects to focus on for the quarter (smaller ones) or year (larger ones). Either way – limit them to 10.

Your TOP 10 List…

– Pick you TOP 4 on this list are going to be the CORE Projects, the corner pieces of the jigsaw puzzle

– The next 4 are your projects that are next in line, the side pieces of the jigsaw puzzle puzzle

– The last 2 are your shiny projects, the middle pieces of the jigsaw puzzle

Focusing on the ‘critical few’ projects over the ‘important many’ is how build your business like a jigsaw puzzle.

It is essential to ensure you do them in that order. So – if it comes down to not completing two, make sure it’s the last two (not the first two). The top four projects are essentially the building blocks from which the other projects work from – so make sure the top 4 are complete before you start anything else.

Using this is a method will also make sense to all of your employees too, which means that there is no confusion on the importance of ongoing projects.
