Discipline 1

Vision and Goal Setting

Creating a clear vision and setting achievable goals are the bedrock of any successful organization. For small contractors, this means understanding not just the immediate tasks at hand but also where you want your company to be in the future.

Start by defining what success looks like for your business—be it winning more federal contracts, expanding your services, or building a reputation for quality work. Once the vision is clear, break it down into tangible goals. These could range from increasing bid submissions by 50% within the next year to enhancing team skills through continuous training.

Goals should be SMART: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound, ensuring they guide your daily operations and long-term strategies effectively.

Start by reflecting on what success looks like for your company beyond just financial gains. Consider where you want your company to be in the next 5-10 years, the types of projects you want to undertake, and the impact you want to have on your community. This vision should inspire your team and guide your strategic planning.

A goal becomes achievable when it is specific, measurable, aligned with your capabilities, and set with a realistic timeline. For federal contracts, this could mean targeting a certain number of bids within a year or aiming to achieve specific certifications that make you a more attractive bidder.

Goals should be reviewed quarterly to assess progress and adapt to any changes in the market or your business environment. This keeps your strategies responsive and flexible, ensuring you remain on track towards achieving your long-term vision.
