Why do you need the Business Expertise Programme?
A business is valuable if it has well differentiated products and services and it is a profitable, professionally managed organisation that can operate independently of its owner.
Such organisations don’t just happen by accident, they are built. Having the right business model, a differentiating strategy, cash flow, culture, systems and processes are all vital ingredients.
Such businesses are also scalable to become much larger. Only a small number of SMEs actively build their businesses into assets.
The stronger the financial performance and the more attractive the business is, then the more valuable it becomes. Attractiveness is the future earning potential and robustness of the organisation.
Business Expertise has a proven philosophy that enables owners and entrepreneurs to keep focused on the strategic direction of their business growth.
To make the strategy come to life we have a management method that addresses the practical activities that must be managed.
Since turning any plan into reality is crucial, we use our expertise to support you throughout.
How Does the Business Expertise Programme work?
Many business owners rely on their business for retirement or wealth creation.
Unless a business is financially strong and attractive to a buyer it will not be worth very much - probably far less than you think it is worth or need it to be worth.
If own a business you are going to work hard…..so wouldn't you also want to work smart at the same time and build an asset as well as an getting your income?
At some point, you will want to sell your business, to retire, to do something else or perhaps hand it on to the next generation.
Many businesses have the potential to out perform other types of investment if they are managed correctly.
As you invest so much time, money and emotion into your business wouldn't you want to maximise it's value?
What is covered in the Business Expertise Programme
Everything...is the short answer.
Every business is in a unique situation, so firstly we use a specially developed Discovery session to explore your business. Many clients say that they have never been asked such questions before and find it illuminating.
On completion of the Discovery session a business Diagnostic tool highlights profit improvement opportunities by identifying profit leakage.
The Diagnostic has been used on several thousand businesses and has been fine tuned over 10 years.
Once we understand your business situation we can then tailor a specific solution for you and give you a report.
The Discovery session reviews the history and current situation of your business.This is enables us to thoroughly understand the business and the context that it is operating in.
The Diagnostic session evaluates the business against over 60 questions that look for profit and business improvement opportunities across every area of the business.
The Business Expertise Programme then evaluates the business model and opportunities to re position profitability, cash flow and positioning in the market.
We then build your Strategic Business Plan and an Operation Business Plan.
Business Expertise Plans are clear and focused using our One Page Plan approach which makes them easy to use and follow.
Implementation is key and we assist our clients with this through regular contact and sharing our Business Expertise.
