"Business is simple. Create a plan; execute it."
Our superstar FDs & CFOs can work part-time – remotely or at your premises – to help you increase cash, profit, and valuation, freeing you from the burden of day-to-day operations.
Business planning is just one of the 12 building blocks of a world class finance function.
We’ll help you build the right plan (or rework the existing plan), with structured regular reviews armed with appropriate management information and KPIs.
Revisit your WHYWhy are you really in business? Over and above the desire to generate profits, what’s your deeper motivation, your vision and your purpose? This is the single most important factor in business planning – regularly reconnecting with your true ambition.
Be clear about your WHATThe ‘WHAT’ elements are the outcomes that you aspire to achieve as part of your journey. Write them down and review them regularly, updating them if necessary – after all, people and circumstances can change.
HOW are you going to get there?When you’re clear on your ‘WHY’ and ‘WHAT’, your ‘HOW’ becomes much simpler. You can add rocket fuel to your business with a clear plan and coherent objectives that cascade down through departments, supported by high quality management information and a structured (monthly) routine.
What's your end game?Do you know where you’re going – and how will know when you’ve got there? For example, if you’re looking for an exit to retire, when will that be and with what amount? For some business owners this is the joy of the journey – but you need to be clear that this is what you want.
Be honest with yourselfMany business owners understandably enjoy big picture planning, but skim through the detail. If you don’t enjoy the ‘implementation’ part of planning, the rigour and discipline of delivering the plan, that’s fine – in fact it’s a large part of what we’re here to help with!
