Does it seem like you’re “On the road to nowhere”

I don’t know about you, but I have felt that at times in my life.

The Talking Heads song, which some of you might be familiar with is about having no order, plan or scheme in life. I’ve taken the liberty of using it here. Because in business, if you want to achieve your objectives, then you cannot afford not to have a plan that is actionable.


I find creating a strategic roadmap can help to align a businesses’ goals and objectives with actionable steps that drive progress towards their vision. I use the following process:

  • The first step in developing a strategic roadmap is to conduct a thorough analysis of the business, including its strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats.
  • This analysis should inform the development of a set of strategic goals and objectives that align with the organization’s overall mission and vision.
  • Once the goals and objectives are established, the next step is to identify the specific initiatives and projects that will be required to achieve them. These initiatives should be prioritized based on their strategic importance and feasibility, and timelines and resource requirements should be established for each.
  • The final step in the process is to communicate the roadmap to all stakeholders and ensure that there is alignment and buy-in across the organization. Regular monitoring and evaluation of progress against the roadmap is also critical to ensure that the organization stays on track and can adjust as needed to stay aligned with its goals.
