Solutions, Through a Proven Process

I. Address Immediate Burning Issues:

Extinguish the fires that may be burning within each category below, while at the same time designing and implementing systems.

II. Design and implement systems where incomplete or absent; improve these systems, “always”:

  1. Marketing: define the market and the ideal person within it, find that individual for a salesperson to speak with, and obtain an appointment.
  2. Sales: close business efficiently using a process.
  3. Finance: obtain the money required to execute your plan.
  4. Accounting: keep track of the money and properly report to all levels of management and outside interested parties.
    1. Internally:
      1. Job and Product Costing
      2. Pricing Strategies
      3. Gross Profit Margins
      4. Overall Profitability
      5. Other Metrics specific to the industry and individual business
    2. Externally:
      1. Taxing authorities
      2. Lenders
      3. Investors
  5. Human Relations: compensation methods and plans, hiring, training, conflict resolution, dismissal.
  6. Operations: the services you provide, the products you produce, and the combination of the two.

    III. Do something that should be done at the beginning of the process, but rarely is:

    Strategic Planning with Orderly Execution: define Vision, Mission & Core Values, Strategy, Tactics, and Metrics

    IV. Do this once, or many times; separate in its entirety, wonderful when done properly:

    Business Acquisition(s)

    V. Facilitate the increase in Value through orderly growth

    Executive Coaching

    VI. Finally

    Sell the business, if and when it is the right thing to do and if it is the right time

    A Note: Simple and Amazing

    Improvements to any one of issues listed above, from Marketing through Operations, and clarifying your Vision can be powerful; two or more can create something amazing; and with this platform completely built, add an Acquisition, and the results can be more than the owner may have imagined.
