Short, clear, simple, feasible, and measurable!
You need a good business plan or strategy, but you have neither the time nor the energy to think for weeks and write something that, despite good ideas, will end up in a drawer after all. You are right!
Most strategic plans are too extensive documents that are impossible to implement because they come down to general recommendations, set too many priorities, are incomprehensible and employees do not know what is expected of them and are so complicated that it is impossible to implement, measure results and correct them from time to time.
But strategic planning is still one of the most useful management tools because it maintains an organization’s focus on what is truly essential to business success.
How to make a plan that is concise, understandable, and feasible?
Strategy on A4 is an effective way to create a strategic plan that is:
- short – on only one page
- clear and simple – it is easy to understand, explain and see the connection between the plan and the activity
- feasible and measurable – each implementation activity has a responsible person, a deadline, and a result indicator.
The process of creating a Strategy on A4 is based on two simple questions: What? and How ?, “What is success?” and “How will we achieve it?”. It also forces us to make difficult decisions: to limit ourselves to describing success in one sentence and choosing a small number of key goals, to determine a list of what we must and will not do, all with the goal of staying focused on those ideas, jobs, and strategies that bring success.

Date and time: Thursday, March 11, 2021 at 2 p.m.
Place: Zoom platform
Language of the lecture: Croatian
The substantive year of 2020 has repeatedly pointed to the unpredictability of movements in financial markets, both domestic and foreign. The high level of macroeconomic uncertainty combined with economic policy makers, technological advances and historically low borrowing costs have largely shaped investors ’expectations and sentiment in financial markets. The expected stabilization of macroeconomic trends is still in a delicate phase, as indicated by the financial trends at the beginning of 2021, which suggests a still very challenging investment environment. This further emphasized the importance of adequate monitoring of systemic risks and appropriate calibration of macroprudential policy in order to preserve the stability of the domestic financial services sector.
The aim of the lecture is to provide an overview of recent macroeconomic and financial developments in the context of systemic risks that are currently at very high levels, and whose materialization can result in significant losses for investors, and in the extreme scenario threaten the stability of the entire financial system.
The lecture is intended for all those who are interested in the broader context of recent developments in financial markets, and especially for students interested in the topic of systemic risks, since in addition to the analysis of trends will highlight the prevailing risks that may adversely affect markets and the domestic financial sector.
Lecturer: Mr. Mario Bambulović, Head of the Systemic Risks Directorate at HANFA.
