I’ve been working on developing a strategy, since having a plan is vital for running a company and reaching my goals. In my opinion it’s like playing chess. If you want to win you need to have one, no matter if it’s good or bad.
In plain terms I’ve been trying to figure out what I want to do and how I want to do it 🙂
“Your mission, should you choose to accept it”
Since what I want to do is develop games, I see a need to focus a bit more than just Apps in general, so I’ve decided to go for Apps on Android. This should help me minimize the number of skills needed to get something published in the first place, instead of just stating that I want to generally develop Apps or even more broadly just saying games development. Secondly I’m a proponent of Android and thus really wanted to at least make something for that particular platform. Thirdly, Google has a nice distribution platform for Apps, which gives me the possibility for targetting a potentially big audience.
So where do I go from here?
There’s still quite a bit of things that I need to consider. For one I haven’t formalized my mission and vision statement. Furthermore I believe you got to know or at least have considered a few things like what being in a certain market requires, what can affect your business, what your competitors are doing and what your core competencies are. But that’s got to go on my to do list for now 😉
