Sitting for a coffee and having an open chat with the owner will often move to one common theme– “I love what I do and want to earn money but I want to be in control and want to have a life and not be a slave of my business. I am tired of having to solve all the problems myself”.

In the current business conditions, this theme has become more and more pertinent.

We have helped a number of businesses make the transition between a family enterprise towards a corporate structure with defined processes and KPIs across the whole business with one clear aim: increase the shareholder value.

Most businesses would have, over the years, accumulated deficiencies in all 4 Key functions with the main ones being:

  • Lack of constant visibility of the critical points of the business in order to take timely decisions
  • Lack of understanding of the profit and loss statement and how to effectively and consistently manage it
  • Lack of ideas of how to mitigate loss of performance and preservation of the bottom line from either lack of timely data or the fear to act
  • Utilisation of working capital for CAPEX projects thus draining the financial ability of day-to-day business
  • Limited use of IT to enhance operations and make them efficient
  • No clear visibility of output measures
  • Little or no planning on how to increase capacity whilst retaining the ability to manage and control
Human Resources
  • Lack of right people in the right place
  • No proper handle and control on labour costs on a weekly basis
  • Single dependencies on individuals with no clear succession planning
  • Throwing in more and more people to solve operational and capacity problems
  • No proper onboarding of new people
  • Lack of KPIs as a reward mechanism
  • No recruitment and retention plan
  • Lack of investment in continuous personal and professional development and training
Business Development, Sales & Marketing
  • Not properly researching and evaluating new business ventures which result in a time and effort intensive and cash draining nightmare
  • Not having a structured, measurable, target driven plan for the sales and marketing of the company’s products and services
  • On-the-fly marketing initiatives and adhoc advertising expenditure with no real measurement of ROI
  • No plan on how to continuously renovate the customer experience whilst ensuring client loyalty
  • No plan on how to manage the product lifecycle
  • Being over reactive to dips and trends in the marketplace

This is where we come in to take an X-ray of the business and re-think, re-define and re-deploy
