Solve Business Problems for Sustainable Business Success

Our Mission is Solve Business Problems for Your Sustainable Business Success

Businesses have a lifecycle from start-up, through sustainability, growth and a lifestyle plateau and eventually to an exit sale or a closure.  Along the way, problems and difficult times often occur.  Businesses fail.  Their growth plateaus.  Leaders are stressed and over extended. We have bundled our resources to show how to solve business problems along each stage of  a business’s lifecycle.

DIY Failing Business Turnaround

Saddest, and all too common, are those businesses experiencing problems that can often lead to failure.  Some estimate that 1 in 5 businesses fail.  Others quote statistics that  50% of new businesses fail in the first year.

This s a tremendous waste of time, effort, money and dreams.

Our DIY Failing Business Turnaround resource bundle is designed to help solve business problems

Sustainability

We have got used to the word “sustainable” in the context of climate.  The same term can apply to a well managed business tuned for each stage of its lifecycle.

A Sustainable business can continue indefinitely with;

  • acceptable workload and stress for owners and staff
  • sufficient profitability and
  • a low waste, optimal, operation work flow
Our Sustainability resource bundle includes;

Routine Monitoring

Both known and unknown problems can arise at any time. Your Monitoring tools alert you to emerging problems.

Tune for Sustainability

Just like a boat, a business develops 'barnacles' over time that impair its performance. Our 100 day Optimization toolkit strips off the barnacles for optimum efficiency

Success

You know the adage; “Success is in the eye of the beholder” or, in our case, the “Eye of the Leader“.

Typically, success falls into 3 types;

  • a growth phase for start-up and onwards
  • a change to a “lifestyle” stage when the pressures from growth are replaced with a plateau of comfortable and profitable routines and
  • an exit sale

Different types of enterprises define success in different ways.  A NFP might call it funds raised for their charitable work.  A local government might define it as ratepayer satisfaction.  A private company might define it as profit.  The moral is that success is measured differently for different types of enterprise.

Individual Business Leaders might also define success differently.  Some want to grow at all cost.  Others have worked hard and now want a better lifestyle rather than just more growth.  Some are looking to sell the business and make a good exit that leaves them comfortably off.

The take-away is that success means different things to different leaders.

12Faces recognizes this.  We offer you a choice of advisory options so you can assemble a business that maximizes your personal definition of success by solving business problems.

Kaizen

This Japanese word means 'continuous improvement'. It is what made Toyota great; and can do the same for your business.

Successful & Sustainable Lifestyle

Many businesses come to a point where growth is no longer a critical goal. Sometimes the business has filled its niche and more growth means the risk and stress of finding another. Sometimes the owner trades off long hours and stress for a more peaceful lifestyle to enjoy the fruits of their labour. Its common and it makes a lot of sense. We help you get the best out of life with our Sustainability tools outlined above

Succcessful Exit

Eventually, many businesses exit with a sale to a larger business or a competitor. This especially suits owner-operator businesses when the owner wants to retire. But to get the best price, you need to groom the business to match potential buyer's selection criteria. This can take several years so best to start the planning well in advance to get the best possible exit price. See our specialist tools for a business exit. Solve business problems restricting the best exit.
