Based on the things the UK's more successful businesses do every year without fail
Would it be a problem if your vision wasn’t aligned with other stakeholders? Do you know their plans? Could independent facilitation help explore these factors?
Does your profit forecast consider the impact on your balance sheet and cashflow? Can you rely on your management information to make those key business decisions?
When comparing your actual performance to budget, do you delve deeper into your numbers beyond the headline figures? e.g. What activity makes up your turnover and profit?
Are you measuring the right numbers that influence your performance or provide a timely wake up call? What are the factors that truly influence your success and how are you accounting for them?
Have you seen the benefits of comparing your business against your competitors or the trends in your industry? Where could you improve?
If you’re not clear about what you really want from the business, how will you end up where you want to be, or know you are there? Are your goals at the heart of your decision making?
Are you aware of how your performance and non-financial factors impact your business valuation? Are you in danger of negatively impacting upon it?
We help our clients to make their numbers work, so they can earn more with less effort and keep more of what they earn.

So what is included?
Based on the research of what the UK's successful businesses do every year, and developed over recent years, we offer you an 8 step Business Improvement Programme. Our objective is to make the programme 'cost neutral to your development' as soon as possible and help you implement the steps to deliver the results desired.
The programme includes planning, forecasting, measuring, evaluation, comparison, improvement and valuation.
Here's a little more information, but we invite you to meet with us and discuss what each step really means for you.
Step 1: Decide what you want really want to achieve
Start with the end in mind. We will work with you to really understand your business objectives and personal goals. We will establish how you will measure your success and ensure that the business planning process covers all the key issues. This is a key stage to understand the purpose of your business and how the success will be achieved, whilst identifying those key factors that helps drive your motivation, decision making and strategy.
The type of key issues we explore are your Value proposition, Customer Interation & Relationships, your Team, your Partners, Cashflow, Key activities and priorities.
As part of this step, we will also assist with your forecasting and budget, to plan how the numbers will need to work to deliver your objectives. From step one, you will have clarity of the activities in your business that need your time, attention and commitment. Our 3-way forecasting enables you to create an effective forecast with relevant reports that help you manage the business, make key decisions and plan for the future.
Step 2: Measure how well you actually perform each month
We help measure those key drivers that matter for your business, using a range of tools and analysis work. We will produce a regular summary of your financial performance with management accounts information and performance reports.
This step enables you to react to situations in a timely manner and not when it is too late or the opportunity has been missed. We will share our experience and expertise to reflect on the numbers to keep you on track to achieve your objectives.
We have a saying: Turnover and profit are only outcomes. We will help you to identify what is influencing your headline numbers and make the numbers work in relation to your business.
Step 3: Measure your full year's performance
For this step, we will evaluate your financial performance using a range of ratios and trend analysis. This evaluation step will clearly show how the business has performed year on year and what has influenced the changes.
We will review your business, using a sensitivity analysis, to suggest how certain improvements can make a difference in your business. This could be more sales, the improvement of your margins or driving lower costs, but at all times we will keep in balance, your objectives, your team, your customers and your suppliers.
We want all our clients to be successful, so work with them to establish an improvement plan and establish how this can be practically delivered in their business.
