The Business StartUp BluePrint.

Posted on: October 6, 2011

  1. Strategy
  2. Systems


A strategy answers the why?

  1. Why are you going to do XYZ?
  2. Why are you different from everyone else?
  3. What has been done before?
  4. What is the benefit?
  5. What is the greatest impact you can provide?


Systems answer the how? Every successful operation executes it’s strategy through a system. Meaningful work is done through a system.

  1. What are the obstacles we are going to encounter?
  2. How do we use leverage?
  3. What is the path of maximum resistance!(This is the one that needs to be overcome first as it is in science called the rate determining step)
  4. What will be the cost and how do we keep it at a minimal?

Peter Drucker, the grandfather of management said business has two responsibilities. Innovation and marketing. Strategies take care of innovation, systems take care of marketing.

Take Care and i accept all likes and dislikes,shares,re-tweets,reposts and even “information daylight robbery”!

PS. If you love the above information look out for my new audiobook and consultation program…”RedefineWork” You won’t want to miss it.

thanks for the post. In just 2 moves you squeezed the whole management science. I really agree (and like) the Drucker parallel. True Innovation and marketing vs Strategy and system.

Strategies and systems are at the core of any successful business, without them you are lost. I appreciated the idea that strategies take care of innovation while system take care of marketing. You simplified and summarized the concept of business to a point where anyone can understand it – now it’s just making it work. Great post.


Good questions in your strategy.

Great way of utilizing the KISS method!
