Growth is the most ambitious plan a business can have. Creating or transforming a business to realise a new vision is exciting and challenging. It is a journey filled with uncertainty as it consumes financial and human resources, for the promise of greater reward at some stage in the future. Leadship demands are constantly changing, with specialised skills and knowledge required at every step.
Access to information has dramatically changed the way people make purchasing decisions. This creates new opportunities for competitive advantage, and undermines many traditional business development strategies. This is both an exciting and frustrating time for many businesses. Being aware of these market dynamics is essential to effectively target resources, strategies, and marketing initiatives.
Business operations need to be strong for a business to survive and thrive. Weaknesses can undermine growth or development efforts, put stress on finances, as well as demotivate staff and clients. Making operational changes can have a dramatic and immediate impact on the performance of a business, good or bad. A well designed and executed program of change can unlock capacity to scale, improve performance, and build a culture that attracts and retains clients and staff.
