Business Planning and Strategy Implementation

As a business owner, you need to be able to answer three vital questions

  1. Where is your business now?
  2. Where do you want to be?
  3. How are you going to get there?

The fact is most business owners do understand the importance of business planning but many feel that they don’t have the time and/or the skills to organise a Strategic Plan.  Even the business owners who do manage to prepare a Strategic Plan sometimes fail to follow through with full implementation so need someone to hold them accountable and help tweak the strategies.

That’s where we come in.

We can facilitate a strategic planning day with you and your executive team.

As your facilitator, we will guide you through the planning day and help you build the Strategic Plan step by step to achieve your business goals.  But we don’t stop there, we can also follow up with you to make sure your implementation doesn’t falter by helping you tweak the strategies as necessary to stay on track.

Profit Improvement Plan

What is a Profit Improvement Plan?

You work hard and you deserve to be rewarded for your efforts.

Our Profit Improvement Plan (PIP) is designed to get your business working as effectively and efficiently as possible, so that you maximise your profit. 

The program will show you what drives profit in your business. It will help you to better understand what the numbers on your financial reports really tell you. It will allow you to implement processes that will bring your business long term growth. It’s about more than just short term wins. It’s about setting up the framework for success well into the future.
