Identifying, prioritising and managing ideas for your business today

If you’re a part of XY Adviser, you won’t be short of new ideas to try in your business. The real question to answer is – how do you apply ruthless prioritisation of those new ideas and the existing tasks you’re already doing to ensure you’re focusing on the ones that will produce the highest ROI for your business.

In this session, Pat shared a straightforward framework you can use to adopt a ‘ruthless prioritisation’ mindset to identify, prioritise and manage ideas for your business today.

Here’s what we covered:

  • The temptation – the issue of finding or coming up with lots of new ideas, but without any framework to prioritise them and ensure you are only focusing on the ones which work towards your businesses goals or North Star.
  • Before you start – Begin with the end in mind. Pat shared a graph representing the three “Horizons” of business growth and why you should approach it in a non-linear fashion
  • Having ideas – What to do when you come up with new ideas, and what it might look like if you ‘re-think your whole system’.
  • Evaluating ideas – Pat shared a few of his favourite methods to effectively evaluate if and when an idea is worth implementing in your business now.

Pat Flynn brings simplicity, continuous improvement, and fresh perspectives so advisers can do more. He’s the Director and Advice Innovator at Simply Kaizen, Founder of Simply Advice Websites and Founder of Life Goal Cards.
