A business without a plan isn't going anywhere. In our experience, too many businessmen spend too much time working in the business rather than on the business and those that do work on the business do so for the short-term not the medium or longer-term. However, we all work better and more efficiently if we have objectives and a business plan is a means to setting yourself, and your team, objectives that are SMART - Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timebound.
We won't write your business plan for you, but we'll guide you through the process, perhaps making you look at or see your business in new and enlightening ways. We'll start with what it is you want to achieve, consider the contextual factors largely outside your control and the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats the business faces. With all this in mind, we'll help you develop appropriate opportunities and threats the business faces. With all this in mind, we'll help you develop appropriate strategies and objectives to enable you to achieve your ambitions.
