Strategy for SMEs

Strategy for SMEs is different. As a leader you need a practical roadmap that will:

Engage and inspire your team and staff.
Not cost you a fortune. (I can spread my costs over 12 months to help cash flow) I have helped many of my clients to get grant aid resulting in no net cost to them for my services.
> Be developed quickly – most strategic plans take 6 half day sessions with your team and can be completed over 10 weeks.
> Have a performance management mechanism to ensure you are on target
> Have a process to continually modify and improve the strategy to changing circumstances, e.g. competitor, market or economic conditions. This means your strategy doesn’t become dated like many others do.

Benefits of My Approach

> Improves your leadership: My strategy approach will provide you and your team with a context to develop and grow your business. Leadership and management skills can be developed to execute the strategy and therefore become relevant based on the needs of the business.
> Focuses the team: My approach pulls the team together. It is a useful exercise to assess strategic thinking skills (and management capability) amongst team members. It puts you and your team on the same page!
> Delivers results quickly: I don’t spend months developing a strategy that by the time we are finished it is no longer relevant. My approach delivers a first draft that can be implemented immediately. It can be further refined and improved as the implementation is being done and reviewed.
> Teaches you how to fish: From the outset, my goal is to enable you to think, plan and act strategically without me. I aim to make myself redundant as soon as possible. This differs to other providers who do the opposite and build in a dependency on themselves to keep the initiative going – not my style!
