Strategic Objectives of Bitesize Irish Gaelic

Irish proclamation of independence

The company that I’m growing over time is Bitesize Irish Gaelic.

A big influence over how the company is run have been the people behind Tropical MBA. They’ve spoken lots about Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to run a business. To give it some direction you need some Strategic Objectives (plus separate Operating Principles).

Here’s a snapshot of our current Strategic Objectives. Any comments? Get in touch with me.

Bitesize Irish Gaelic Strategic Objectives

Note to staff: this section is like our “Declaration of Independence”. It sets out who we are, and what we stand for. Once matured, our Strategic Objectives should not really change from year to year. Our Operating Principles will sometimes change as we learn. Out Working Procedures will constantly be under review to be improved, cleaned out, and added to.

Everything we do should reflect our Strategic Objectives and our Operating Principles. If you’re asked to do something outside of our stated objectives and principles, then it’s certainly time for the team to review the situation.



Here are the four pillars that Bitesize Irish Gaelic stands for:


In our Google Drive document for Strategic Objectives, the content above is followed by a description of how we generate value and money from that value (what products we sell).

It’s always good for me to read through this stuff: a pillar I’d add would be “Immersion”, since the only way to learn a language is to immerse yourself in it (and you don’t have to be in Ireland to create your own Gaeltacht). Interestingly, that’s more important than the Bitesize concept itself, which threatens the name of the company. But it does all fit in the same line of thought.
