We start together - so many questions! We get to understand the issues, you reconnect with your strategy.
To rediscover why the business was started, and to track through to where it is today, helps to focus the mind. Too often the original reasons behind the business have been forgetten. There will be carbuncles attached to the business, areas that were a good idea but might now be holding the business back.
We take a careful look at what the business already does, as within most well-established companies there is often a core of uniqueness. It is more about what not to do, it is about how to extend the company’s uniqueness, whilst strengthening the fit among its activities.
This being a process for owner-managers of growing businesses, we look at the team, what drives the owner, what drives the top team - in order to gain any level of success they have to be aligned, they have to be working to a common cause.
At its simplest this is a mechanism to help an owner-manager assess their appetite to grow the business and develop a series of practical actions to make it happen in the best way for them and the business. It will provide a set of critical management actions to realise the potential of the business, its owners and its people.
