New Year’s Resolutions: Energy Assessment
A fresh start to the calendar often opens the door to reassess what is working well, as well as opportunities for improvement. In addition to the list of personal goals we all carry around and forget about by March – where are your operation goals? Are they left behind by March 1st as well? Do you annually consider your energy program to reassess what’s working?
I hope that these questions are not overly challenging to answer, but often times the answers can be hard to digest. There is a simple tool to help break things down – a SWOT analysis. A SWOT analysis breaks down an operation, idea, or topic into four categories: Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats. A SWOT analysis used in broad terms can assess your operation as a whole, or it can assess something as specific as your operation’s energy program.
Example: Dairy Operation
Example: Energy Program
As we welcome a new year, this is the opportune time to strengthen your business strategy by reassessing what is working, and what needs improvement within your operation or energy program. I, or your local Landmark Energy Product Specialist, are here to assist in answering questions about putting your energy program back on track. Taking the first step by looking at your current situation today has the ability to put you ahead in 2018.
