Community Connections: Strategies in golf

Send to Kindle
Print This

For my day job, I work with groups and organizations helping to develop strategic plans for the short-term and long-term. During this process, we flesh out things like mission and vision statements, key strategic objectives and detailed action plans to move the needle toward success. Sounds fun, right? Right? (OK, thanks.)

Although you may not have ever thought about it before, the game of golf also includes elements of the strategic planning process. For instance, the mission is defined as what we get up in the morning to do every day. My mission statement: one word — fun. Golf should always be about how we enjoy the game. If you’re the guy or gal who throws clubs and continues to use expletives after every shot, consider other activities such as reading. At home. Alone.
