Read time: 3 minutes

Welcome to issue twelve of Punchline, your one-stop source for sharp insights and practical strategies within the construction industry.

In this week’s edition, we're looking ahead – all the way to 2024. It's never too early to plan for success, so let's get started!

Setting the Goals

First thing's first, we need to know what we're aiming for. Think about where you want your business to be in 2024 – what do you want to achieve? Write down five main objectives – that's your starting point.

Knowing the Market

With goals set, you'll need to know what's happening in your market. Keep an eye on potential changes and trends, and how your competition might react to them. Subscribe to newsletters or platforms for up-to-date industry knowledge.

Adjusting Your Course

Your business plan isn't set in stone – it can and should change as necessary. Test and tweak your model to align it with your 2024 vision. You might need to diversify your business, streamline processes, or invest in new technology.

Investing in People

Remember, your team is essential. Do they have the skills you'll need in the future? Consider whether you need to hire new people or train your existing staff. Talent acquisition and development are key components of your strategy.

Planning Finances

Solid financial planning is essential. What will your revenue look like in 2024? Where will you get the resources you need? Consider forecasting tools to help you prepare for the financial sides of your plan.

Next Week's Action

Here's your job for this week: create a one-page draft of your '2024 Vision'. Just write down an overview of where you want your business to be in 2024, including your main goals, strategic plans, and key industry trends that could affect things.

By planning for 2024 now, we're setting ourselves up for success.
