Business Strategy

Whether they’re commercial or personal, everyone has priorities and everyone has goals. It’s our job to help you identify those, and make them happen. Here is how we do that: 

Strategic planning

We can guide you to develop clear objectives for your business, building on your strengths and overcoming your weaknesses. Through a series of planning sessions, we can:

  • Identify those areas in your business that are holding you back
  • Present the options available to you
  • Plan the best course of action

Our approach follows a well-designed strategic planning programme covering all dimensions: from marketing, operations, human resource management and finance, all aiming to unlock the potential within your business. Our strategic work focuses on detailed and effective action planning, which means you will receive support and guidance to help you realise your aspirations. We can give you:

  • Greater control over your future
  • A clearer succession plan
  • Increased freedom from your business
  • A higher return on your investment, or increased revenue
  • Improved team morale and productivity

Profit improvement

You want to maximise the income of your business, while at the same time you’re striving to keep costs under control. Remember: minimising waste and inefficiency can and does have a positive effect on both. The average company could lose an estimated 15-20% of their operating costs through waste and inefficiencies. We developed our Waste Reduction Programme to help deal with operational inefficiencies:

  • We identify where waste and inefficiencies occur in your business
  • We prioritise the areas to tackle first
  • We set the actions needed to cut out these wastes and inefficiencies
  • We help make your business more streamlined.

Value-building and succession planning

A business primed for sale can be worth considerably more than one where the owners have neglected to plan. There are several actions you can take to maximise the value of your business, facilitate a smooth transaction and ensure its ongoing success - timing really is key to exit planning. Our succession planning experts can help you to:

  • Achieve clarity of vision for your business
  • Establish a track record of growth in profitability
  • Build a management team that can succeed without you
  • Establish robust systems and procedures built on best practice
  • Become free from excessive debt

We can help you get a clear idea of where your business needs to be when you exit, where you are currently – and, crucially, what you need to do to bridge that gap.
