Drive Clarity

We will work with you as a trusted friend, advisor, mentor and critic to help you clarify your vision, business strategy and objectives.

  • What is your business plan?
  • Does your financial model support the business plan?
  • How do you define your market and your value proposition?
  • Why do you do what you do?
  • What’s compelling about it? What’s your unfair advantage?
  • Why you and not the competition?
  • What’s your business plan and marketing plan for success?

Scale Up :
Clarify Your Strategy

Once you have established clarity we will support you as you execute on those plans and drive forward to achieve those goals.

  • Do you have a Coherent Vision, Objectives, Strategy, Exit Plan; with an agreed ‘Why’, ‘What’, ‘How’?
  • Do you have full stakeholder commitment and support?
  • Is your Global Market Offering compelling, does it have an unfair advantage and massive headroom?
  • Do you have an agreed Business Case, Financial Plan, Go-To-Market Plan, Operating Model?  Do the numbers work?
  • Is your organisational structure agreed, scalable, appropriate?

  • And with good relationships with finance providers for the long haul?

Scale Up :
Have the Right People

Once you have established clarity we will support you as you execute on those plans and drive forward to achieve those goals.  Rapid and geographic growth gives its own peculiar pressures on the existing and new staff team.

Scale Up :
Execute Well

Excellent operational execution is key to realising your scale-up plan.  Rapid and geographic growth demands good planning and close attention to every element of the operational execution.

  • Is the brand global, with strong supporting Brand Values, Promotion Plan, Marketing Plan, Sales Plan.
  • Will these plans cope with rapid acceleration?
  • Do you have a tested and agreed Operational & Delivery Plan?
  • How do you ensure you continue to sell the right thing to the right people, globally, consistently, and for profit?
  • As growth happens, pay close attention to Customers, Partners, Suppliers, Sourcing, Channels, Offering, Pricing, and the Supply Chain.
  • Don’t forget Risk Management, Governance, Quality Management.
  • Is your IP protected, locally, regionally and/or globally?

Scale Up :
With Appropriate, Robust Infrastructure

Your infrastructure needs to be able to grow and flex as the company scales.

  • Do you have massively scalable and flexible web-based support and back-office systems (Finance, Operations, Sales Support, Projects, HR, Supply Chain, etc)?
  • Will the Customer Service and Post-Sales support processes scale as required?
  • What is your global Asset Management strategy?
  • How will you deliver Executive and Management reporting?  Will there be agreed (and right) KPI’s, at the right ‘rhythm’ for the business?
  • How will you put in place a Continuous Improvement process, that scales and improves the business as the business itself scales?
