Founder Scott Williams has been a successful small business founder for decades. Now retired from active management, he is bringing his vast experience to other small businesses to speed up their Sustainable Business Success journey.
Some notable successes now on offer to other small business owners include:
Although the gurus say you should have a multi-year business plan, realistically, that’s not reasonable for most small businesses. You work on much shorter time frames and with much more uncertainty than big business.
Picking a figure for sales, income and profit increases in 2 years time is really just picking a figure at random. You will be wrong 99.9% of the time so why waste time and energy on something that speculative!
In any case, you probably just want to get started improving sales right now!
We have a more realistic, easy to use, 2 Step planning approach to growing a small business
FIRST: Decide where you want to be in three years time
You can quickly decide where you want to be in general terms in 3 years time. It might be (e.g.);
None of these are right or wrong! It’s entirely your choice. And you can change you mind without wasting a lot of past planning effort.
We call this your 3 Year GamePlan
SECOND: Decide your Most Pressing Growth Issue to Resolve in next Quarter
We help you prioritize your no-doubt long ToDo list to find the main issue to tackle over the next 90 days. Its usually fairly easy to pick the biggest problem and 90 days is a manageable timeframe to get things done.
This way you and your team have regular successes as motivation. And your business moves forward as rapidly as possible because you are always addressing the most important issue at that time.
We call this your Quarter GamePlan
The IT industry was long plagued by underperforming and over budget improvement projects.
Then they started using a technique of 1-2 week, very focused, “Sprints” resulting in greatly improved outcomes; even over that short period.
Success went up dramatically!
Learn how to use Sprints in manageable bursts to maximize progress towards success in the next Quarter GamePlan
Your small business benefits from what big business has learnt!
