Free Strategy Health Check for Businesses based in Birmingham and Coventry
Discover how our unique approach makes it possible to have a high calibre Board Advisor, Mentor or Non-Executive Director to help at less than the cost of an Intern.
The Health Check is a free face-to-face session where Gary, who is Regional Director for the West Midlands, would meet with you to discuss the challenges your business is facing.
We use our unique 16 box architecture to review every major area of your business to include your current and future requirements in the Boardroom.
Which challenge are you facing? Our most common 4 are:
Challenge 1: Strategic Direction
Strategic direction consists of determining the core processes and values that position you to succeed – your mission, vision, daily operations, how you bring your team into alignment, and what you do to generate positive morale.
- Do you discuss Strategic Direction with your Directors?
- How do you analyse Strategic Direction?
- Does an NED or Advisor help with strategy planning?
- Do you use tools such as SWOT and MOST?
Challenge 2: Growth
Without strong growth strategy, focus, and relevance, many businesses fail to achieve their growth objectives, fulfil their full potential, diversify into fields and industries where they lack strengths, or don’t address their core competencies, which may change, as they grow.
- Do you discuss Business Growth & Marketing at Board level?
- Who is responsible for Growth? Director level?
- How do you analyse Growth?
- Do you have help with Growth?
Challenge 3: Funding
Before you go looking for investors to fund your business, there are several other things you need to do. You don’t just need to know how much money you need – you need to truly know the ins and outs of your business, as well as precisely what your business needs.
- Why do you need funding?
- Discover the primary sources of funding for SMEs and their benefits and drawbacks
- Learn about funding options that are available in days or weeks – not months or years
- Find an independent specialist to help you improve your pitch and position yourself to succeed
Challenge 4: Exit
Most business owners are so caught up in the day to day tasks of operating their business that they rarely stop to consider their exit strategy. The businesses that sell for the most money have prepared for exit. Find out what you should be doing when even if you don’t envision selling your business any time soon.
- Why do you need an exit plan?
- Who is responsible for the exit planning process? Experience?
- Do you have help with exit planning?
