What Aspects Critical to Your Business does 12Faces Cover?

We group the skills necessary to lead a successful business into 12 categories.  That is the origin of our brand name; 12Faces

Six relate to the business. Weaknesses in any of these areas will damage your business (remember the adage “a chain is no stronger than its weakest link”).

  • Revenue creation like sales, marketing, pricing, product range
  • Operations like workflow, variable costs, inventory
  • Overheads like office costs and R&D
  • Systems like IT and accounting
  • People issues like motivation, hiring and
  • Plan & measure, finances, planning and monitoring

The other six relate to you as Owner and your Team. In other words they apply to the individual, not the business as a whole.  We offer Continuing Professional Development (CPD) to improve personal skills.

  • Decision making skills
  • Self management like time management and working efficiently and effectively
  • Leadership of and by staff
  • Planning to maximize sustainable business success; however success is measured
  • Performance measurement to identify weak spots and measure their improvement
  • Workflow efficiencies like wasted work, production co-ordination

Just like a Mechanic's toolkit, our Tools come Grouped by Purpose

We group the tools in our toolkit by purpose so you can quickly find, and then use, the one you want.  See below for an overview of each group of tools and click-off on any for more information.

Predesigned GamePlans and Courses

GamePlans are our systematic to carrying out business improvements over a 90 day period. Available for (e.g.) optimizing business, turnaround troubled business, improving cashflow management etc. They are a roadmap you can implement immediately. Other courses cover need-to-know topics for owners running their business.

Planning to Succeed

Small Business's planning needs are quite different to large business. We need lightweight, quickly done, frameworks rather than huge Business Plans and elaborate Budgets. Our world changes rapidly so we need a simple, responsive, and easily built and implemented planning technique that works the way we do. We have developed the tools to do this.

Wise Leaders Constantly Monitor Business Performance

All too rarely, leaders track their critical finance and performance statistics. Conventional accounting reports only go part way and often do not show any valuable insights. Just like the dashboard in a car, our ScoreBoard family provide mission critical trend analysis so you can see if your business is Sustainable

A Leader's Skillset defines the Business's Opportunities

Running a business is like the conductor of an orchestra. The orchestra will only perform as well as the conductor can lead it.. Many Business Leaders got promoted for their technical competence as (e.g.) engineers, marketers, accountants  and then had to learn management by the well known "sink or swim" principal.  This is wasteful of resources and stressful for the Business Leader.

Incorporating other Expertise

Even the best of athletes and business people openly declare they use the services of Coaches and Mentors. This gives a different, and experienced, perspective to their already successful endeavours. We agree and offer Performance Coaching and Volunteer Mentoring services.
