As businesses develop, their internal sources of information grow with them. These include financial performance trends and product portfolio performance and provide the building blocks for effective business strategy.
The elements of a business strategy can be summarised as follows:
- Where are we Now?
- Where do we want to get to?
- How do we get there?
It is a fact that the majority of private businesses do not have a business plan. If they do have one, it is quite often out of date and gathering dust on some forgotten shelf.
We can take the pain out of preparing a business plan. We can help you to produce a working document on just one page, which covers the feature listed above and includes - most importantly of all - an Action Plan. This One Page Plan will be created in a Word template and will become an integral element of your business management. For many businesses, they are included as one of the papers attached to the agendas for monthly Board meetings.
To set the strategy planning in motion, we can facilitate a "day out of the office". We will use a range of business planning tools to help you to formulate your strategy and create your first One Page Plan.
If required, we can then attend your Board meetings and assist you in the maintenance of your plan and the achievement of your objectives.
It's been said before, but it's true and it's worth saying again...
"A failure to plan is a plan for failure"
