Game Plan

A game plan is a set of strategies and tactics with workable steps to help you workout a particular problem based on the settings and consequences of the problem, that give you the best viable set of outcomes in your solution proposal based on the inputs and resources that you have at your disposal to fight the battle in the game. Your game plan is your best chance of achieving results, and if you don’t have one, then you have definitely lost the fight because you will waste both time and resources. The best analogy for this is in sport, and this applies to different sports.

Take the example of a football match they explicitly have coaches and strategists, that need to make decisions on how to start the game, play the game and change the game settings during the game in order to win. In restaurant business, the game plan starts by planning and executing effective daily shift meetings that will teach your staff and managers how to design and deliver energetic and effective game plans every day.

Here are four steps to create a winning game plan:

  1. Pin down root of the problem

  2. Prioritize based on outcome

  3. Evaluate the ideal scenario

  4. Proceed with the solution

In each stage there is a priority play, that first step or first move. When you play a game of chess or participate in any strategy game, this first move can often be the decisive one that set the direction for what comes after. They don’t call it first mover advantage for nothing so you have to determine what is that first move. And within each stage, you can breakdown the stages into activities by deploying a S.M.A.R.T plan and then sequenced out in a road-map.

Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat – SUN TZU”
