Gary W. Patterson's article,"Turn Your Blue-Sky Strategy into a Fiscal Vision Worth Its Weight in Gold"

March 15, 2011 – Los Angeles, CA – Gary Patterson, FiscalDoctor® and enterprise risk management (ERM) and operations risk management (ORM) expert and speaker, was selected by the Association for Strategic Planning's (ASP) to publish his thought-provoking article, "Turn Your Blue-Sky Strategy into a Fiscal Vision Worth Its Weight in Gold." Patterson argues that far too many executive leaders miss the mark in developing effective strategic plans.

Today's economy is a perfect storm of rapid change, risk, opportunity, and uncertainty. Those executives who come to grips with their "financial reality" will gain competitive advantage and lead their industries and companies in new and exciting directions. Patterson warns, however, that embracing such a reality is not for the faint of heart. What is required is a willingness to build (and in some cases rebuild) your strategic plan around a fiscal vision. In the end, a strategy that is driven by the company's financial performance and goals is a strategy that will separate the victors from the victims.
