Vision and strategic planning

Many business owners hear the words 'strategic planning' and think it only applies to large PLC's or similar businesses, but they are wrong.

All strategic planning does is force you to "begin with the end in mind", paint the picture of where you want to be in the future and what you want the business to look like, your lifestyle etc. It then forces you to analyse where you are now and this process creates an action plan to take you from where you are now, to where you want to be.

You will be amazed how this helps focus you on the important issues and changes your decision making. How many people would start a journey not knowing where they are going and how they are going to get there? But that is what you are doing with your business if you do not plan.

How do you know whether the decision you make today will get you closer to your destination, or take you in completely the wrong direction?

We will take you through this process in a structured and disciplined way. This will perform a strategic analysis on information and answers you give regarding your business and is the start of a complete process that follows through to implementation and maintenance.

Often one of the outcomes from strategic planning is the realisation that the business is structured in the wrong way. This could mean a lack of protection for the business' wealth, increased risk of failure, or a general loss of commercial opportunities. We can work with you using a fresh pair of eyes and a blank piece of paper to say "if we were starting again, how would we structure this?" The next step then is to work with you to take what you have now and to create what it should be to achieve the business vision.
