Has it all gone to plan? How do you know? What’s changed? What do you know now, that you’ll learn in 6 months time?
Be it a ‘back of a fag packet’, a ‘2 pager’ or an ‘in-depth documented business plan, it’s time to review where you are now and where you are going.
Not everything can or will go as planned, so you and your business need resilience, empowerment and the agility to adapt.
The best plans are adaptable plans, so where can you find those?
whY-us? will help you mind map new opportunities, plan their development, the development of your staff to embrace change and effectively support you to build your 1, 2, or 3 year future business strategy.
Let whY-us? have a look at your ‘Strategy’ considering the following opportunities..
- BUSINESS PLANNING
At whY-us? we help you look at the resources of the business and industry changes to efficienty plan your strategy. whY-us? provide market research, business and employee skill assessments, customer demographic studies, internal efficiency tests and planning tool templates to help you plan for the future.
Whether it be in 2 months or 2 years time, you have to plan ahead!
- GOAL SETTING
So what is success to you and your business? Have you ever stopped to think about this? Are you looking for £margin, increased brand awareness, generic or specific customer demographic base, customer service excellence, accreditation and recognition, business partnerships or your business exit strategy?
If you don’t set your goals and make them known, you don’t have direction or focus to develop your business. whY-us? will work with you to plan, set in place, work towards, and create reporting tools to monitor your goals.
Have you considered entering new markets or realising related product opportunities? Think out-of-the-box and consider how your services and products can be utilised in other sectors/industries.
whY-us? we will help you stimulate new ideas and opportunities to ensure you stay ahead in the game… and your competition.
whY-us? are avid networkers and continuously see the benefits of forming partnerships with strategic clients. In some cases what once was a competitor may actually be a suitable partner to allow you to develop a more feature rich service for your customer. Does your business have the time and resources (people, cash-flow, knowledge, buying power) to supply product and service efficiently and to a high standard? If not, you should consider how to utilise the skills of others.
whY-us? will help you recognise, research and consider opportunities to partner with others and devlop your network.
- SUCCESSION PLANNING
Taking all of the above into consideration, what is your next move? How can your business change internally to ensure you deliver on your planned business objectives?
This is more than just an event! You now need to create a business case to strategically build the business from within by developing a growth plan for yourself and your employees. How will your existing or new employees fit into the plan? Who are your next leaders, managers and key operational staff? What ratio will come from internal promotion or external recruitment? Will existing employees be promoted through skill or time served (the answer is skill)! Who will be retiring in the next 5 years? Any baby booms periods on the horizon? How will this effect morale, motivate employees, create friction and effect employee retention?
These are just some of the considerations you have to make; not easy is it? Let whY-us? support you.
