A Franchise Vision Plan that Inspires

By | Business Plans, Partners

One thing that the 2020 experience has taught us, is that sometimes we need to take a step back and reassess what we are doing, not just how we are doing it.

After all, a franchise, like so many endeavors, is a vehicle through which people achieve their dreams – whether they be financial, professional, or for the benefit of their family. Our friends at Franchise Business Review have long been thought leaders in this community. They are offering a free Vision Plan resource, tailor-made for the franchisor. It could be a great resource for your company.

We are in awe of how effectively so many franchisors have pivoted in the face of the pandemic – from going to online and delivery to moving to video tours of senior homes. Part of pivoting in the franchise context is to move to doing the right things, and this vision plan will help you with that.

Vision Plans Vs. Business Plans

Business Plans focus on the how, and Vision Plans focus on the what. Ultimately, the two artifacts work hand-in-hand and are better together.

This incredible eBook will give you all of the tools that you need to build an effective Vision Plan including:

  • What framework you will need for your vision plan
  • How to build a ‘dream team’ including franchisees
  • How to put your plan into motion

This amazing resource is packed with insider tips such as how to build a vision plan committee with franchisees (separate from your FAC) and how to prepare for pushback. It really is everything that you need in one place.

We are pleased to be featured by Global Franchise Magazine to discuss KPIs in Franchising.

In today’s business environment, which is both highly competitive and data rich, KPIs (key performance indicators) in franchising are becoming a must-have to succeed worldwide. The management style connected with KPIs is especially important in franchising. You are working with entrepreneurs, not employees. An entrepreneur, worth their salt, will be motivated to succeed and will draw on the “I’ll do what it takes” mentality. This situation sets the stage perfectly for managing via KPIs.

Traditional management talks about “the carrot or the stick” as the two sides needed to lead effectively. In terms of the carrot, KPIs motivate, especially when they are displayed together with leaderboards. Having regional leaderboards in a global organization can be especially powerful.
