Cattlemen’s Webinar Series: Business Planning 101

May 23, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Business planning. Does that sound boring, scary, or bureaucratic? Nope, it’s smart and doable. In the busy day of a manager, it’s easy for what’s urgent to crowd out what’s important. Take the time to study your business–and identify how, when, and with what people and resources you’ll reach your goals. This webinar will explain the different types of business planning, ranging from strategic to tactical, and when you use each. Then we’ll dig into some methods and examples to show you how to get started.

Davon Cook of Ag Progress works with farm and ranch businesses to navigate through transitions-transitions from generational changes in management or ownership, or transitions while building the organization’s team and abilities during growth. In addition to working with individual clients, Ag Progress facilitates peer groups and an agriculture executive education program, The Progress Coach. Davon’s entire career has spanned agriculture, ranging from co-managing her family’s cotton gin, to ConAgra and McKinsey & Company, to international ag development in Africa with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. She has seen the need for, and execution, of good planning in all those environments.  Learn more about Davon and Ag Progress at www.agprogress.com.
