Our Business Plan Creation and Execution Process
The STUCK Platform tool helped us maintain a highly focused business planning and execution process. For the final 3 years that I owned my business, we achieved a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22% , a 158% increase in profitability and a resulting successful sale of the company to a strategic buyer for a high multiple.

STUCK has helped us identify our company’s real purpose and helped us create a plan to grow into the business we’re best suited for. Our growth has been phenomenal and our team is more energized and focused than ever before.
-Mike Harpster, President, Capital Electric Wire & Cable
Before STUCK, we were writing 20-25 page business plans that we were too busy to follow. Since working with STUCK’s tools and Single-Page Plan, we are meeting and reviewing the plan regularly. The plan helps us focus on the things that truly grow the business whereas before we were focusing on too much!

It’s time to navigate your business through this crisis. An updated business plan that includes your pivot points is essential for maximizing your business’s health. What’s more important, however, are the actions taken off that plan and holding each other accountable to them.
STUCK is offering a proven business advisory process to help businesses first stabilize and then propel their growth. Internal employees are personally trained by STUCK on the advisory process and cloud-based business plan execution tool to ensure that they are on the most effective path to stabilization.
This process works because it enhances employee empowerment, accountability, and keeps everyone engaged to achieving what is called the single-page business plan. We understand how busy you are, so that’s why we made the process of creating the plan quick. Your business will start with going through the assessment, strategic planning, creation, and deployment of the business plan. After the plan is deployed, your business is immediately impacted due to it’s simplicity and holistic effectiveness.
The next part of the process is the monthly execution cycle. This is where accountability and change really takes place. This execution process is a disciplined cycle that facilitates achievement of the business plan. It includes aligning staff to the plan through the updating:
30/60/90 Day Financial Forecast
The Targets on the Single-Page Plan
Must Do/Can’t Miss Accountability Items
Status of Key Sales Opportunities
Teams will meet at the end of each month to review how they progressed. Then, they will plan what they will do to improve next month to ensure that the businesses remains on track to achieving the Single-Page Plan.
Business owners, leaders, and key staff will use the STUCK Breakthrough Strategies Platform, our cloud-based business management software as they go through this process. It offers hands-on tools, templates, and resources to use. The time spent in the software each month is intended to be minimal and it is easy to use. We recommend using it for just a few minutes every week!
We will train an internal champion employee, at no additional cost, to facilitate this process.
Through accountability and alignment, you will get to watch your business grow.
