What are your plans for 2024?

In the fast-paced world of business, where change is the only constant, the interplay between planning and innovation is like a well-choreographed dance. As the saying goes, "Failing to plan is planning to fail," and truer words have never been spoken. 

At the heart of innovation lies the concept of planning. It's the art of thinking ahead, of anticipating the twists and turns of the market, competitors, and customers.  

Strategy, the compass guiding us through the competitive marketplace, is intricately linked with planning. It involves making decisions today that will shape the future and differentiate us from the rest.  

“From the African perspective, development is a matter of realising our potential and making the progress that we know is humanly possible because others have gotten there.” -Tony Elumelu - Chairperson of the United Bank For Africa. 

Planning is not a one-time event but an ongoing activity. It's about thinking, foreseeing, and adapting in a world that's constantly changing. 

“We have to dream bigger dreams for ourselves and believe that we have the potential to make those dreams come true.” - Mimi Kalinda - Group CEO and Co-Founder Africa Communications Media Group. 

We should spend the majority of our time planning and understanding a problem before diving into action. It's the principle of "sharpening the saw" or Lincoln's wisdom of "preparing the axe before the tree is cut." Take time for the prep work; let the plans simmer and marinate before putting them into action. 

“Never believe anything is impossible. Have an open mind. Find out what it takes to succeed. Chances are it will” - Tony Elumelu - Chairperson of the United Bank For Africa. 

Enter PDCA - a cycle of Planning, Doing, Checking, and Acting. It's a cycle that keeps us in check, ensuring our plans are not static but dynamic, adapting to the ever-changing business landscape. 


Plans are artefacts, static and momentary. Planners, on the other hand, are the artists. So let's keep planning and keep innovating – it's a performance that never truly ends.
