the ability to think about or plan the future with imagination or wisdom.
"the organization has renewed its vision and direction"
Defining the Company’s Belief / Vision leads to a definitive purpose.
This lays the foundation of a roadmap.
A Vision needs to be Far Sighted, Balanced, Aligned, Viable, Ambitious, Focused and Measurable.
Without a Vision / Intent, we might as well be “Driving around in Circles”
Translating the Company’s Vision / Intent into time bound plans is of utmost importance.
Set the direction with a longer term plan.
Get a focused plan for the medium term.

Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory, tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.
