But seriously, anything closely resembling a strategic plan needs direction – otherwise anything and any action will do. And when I say direction, it’s not “get more fucking people or Likes or whatever that’s the flavour of the moment.”
A direction is simply an answer to a problem. A clear, unambiguous and quite specific answer that states both the what and the how.
