Amherst Label’s 3-year strategic plan
THE AMHERST LABEL PAINTED PICTURE: CHARTING A COURSE FOR SUCCESS
September 5, 2020, is the day we envisioned three years ago when Amherst Label created its second painted picture. We got together and imagined the Amherst Label of our dreams.
In our picture, Amherst Label is…
• THE BEST PLACE TO WORK
• THE BEST SPECIALTY PRINTER
The actual pages of our 2017-2020 painted picture worksheet are shown here. Painted Picture 2020 pdf. And the 4-minute movie is below.
Where did we get the idea to take time out of our workdays to plan our future? Well, here’s the background.
In 2014, Nye Hornor and his wife Angela (grand-daughter of the founder of Amherst Label) attended a conference featuring Cameron Herold, author of “Double Double: How to Double Your Revenue and Profit in Three Years or Less.”
The attendees were inspired by Herold’s presentation about the value of the “Painted Picture,” a strategic visioning process in which employees commit to a company-wide picture of success three years down the road. They came home and developed the first Amherst Label Painted Picture, a worksheet and video program plotting the company’s growth plans.
At the end of that 3-year period, with great progress but not the completion of every wish, the team stepped back and went to work again creating our second painted picture.
