The Business Success Program
You have a vision for your company and we provide the focus to reach those goals. We do this by helping you become strategic with your business focusing on improve profits, become more efficient, and increase long-term value.
Identifying the current state of your Business
Rescue Stage: Typically in this stage, we find a business that is not meeting its financial obligations and/or is in revenue decline. The owner may be pouring their own funds into the business and could be in denial about the real state of their business.
Improve Stage: The owner is working hard, putting in the hours, but the business and its revenues may be flat for an extended period of time. The owner is fighting busy the battles of day to day operations, but wants to get more strategic with the business and needs help implementing the necessary tactics to improve.
Grow Stage: The owner is looking to push to the next level. Sound process and procedures exist within the business and there is strong cash flow. They just need structure to reach the business vision.
Identifying where profit is lost and efficiency can be gained
Together we do an in depth inspection of your business focusing on current strategy and business operations. We look at 66 key areas of your business and your answers help us identify lost profits (known as profit leakage) and areas in need of improvement.
This phase serves as the foundation of the agreement and helps narrow in on what we will need to include in our business plan.
Strategy & Execution
Building the plan and getting it done
A three phase process that focuses on building a strategy and then executing on that plan. During the strategy development phase we focus on identifying the business vision, or its destination. Once we clearly understand the goal driving us, we move to the development of the business plan which serves as the map for this journey.
Phase 2 focuses on the operations and the review of all process and procedures. We identify what may need to be re-engineered or optimized and develop an operational plan that aligns with our strategic business plan.
Next, we shift into phase 3, implementation, which includes an intensive period where we launch into our business plan and make the changes necessary to achieve the vision. We act on the strategic and operational plan and work to move fast in making any necessary changes.
We then transition into steady state operation we hold bi-monthly meetings where we focus on the plan implementation and the KPI's that will drive success. Unlike other business plans that are created, put on a shelf, and never updated again, this program works that plan day after day, week after week, year after year. We use the plan as our guide and adapt the plan to meet the changing forces of our business.
