Taking stock: self assessment tool
The first step in an orderly planning process is a self-assessment of farm or food processing business management practices. The Taking Stock workbook will assess your management systems, knowledge, and skills.
As you go through the workbook, you will learn how planning provides the framework for effective decision-making. You will be able to set and prioritize goals for the future and identify resources that can help meet these goals. The purpose of the Taking Stock workbook is to build on your strengths and create a Farm Action Plan to improve your farm management abilities.
Develop your Farm Action Plan and bring value to your management team by completing the Taking Stock workbook. To request a hard copy of a Taking Stock guide, contact us.
