This Business Growth Readiness Health Check survey is designed to make sure that you, and your business are ready to take the next steps to substantially grow your business, with the knowledge that your business set-up, business growth plan and resources are fully prepared to manage the transformation effectively.
According to Forbes there are 4 phases in the business life-cycle: start-up, growth, maturity and renewal/rebirth or decline.
If your business is still at the start-up stage, like most business owners and senior executives you are probably anxious to move forward to create your plan and implement your business growth plan.
On perhaps, you have been in business for a while but have had little success in achieving sustained growth, in which case, chances are you have one or more issues or flawed assumptions in your current growth strategy or sale process.
We created this comprehensive Business Health Check to help you to understand where your business currently stands; what actions you have already taken to prepare your business for growth, and to identify any additional actions required before moving forward
So, are you sure you are ready to grow?
The start-up stage is exciting time, but unfortunately, its also when most businesses fail. The cash requirements are frequently under-estimated and additional funding can be hard to find without significantly diluting your ownership of the business.
Understanding which phase you are in right now can make a huge difference in the strategic business planning process and the operation of your business. The transition from start-up to the growth phase is often gradual and fragmented.
So some of the following may sound familiar:
- At this point, you are still tweaking your business model to get a sense of the market and how to turn a profit,
- Your employees may be wearing multiple hats because your corporate structure is still evolving and the cash resources to employ additional staff may not be available,
- Your Asset Protection Strategy is unlikely to have been fully implemented,
- Your Product and Pricing Strategy may still be a work-in-progress,
- Your financial management and reporting systems may not have been addressed due to other priorities,
- Owners or top executives still need to figure out a business model that allows for sustainable cashflow and profitability, consistent growth and the ability to hire other people to run it, or
- If you have already reached the growth phase, you may have a business that requires you to work 100 hours per week as the sole leader, which is unlikely to be sustainable.
So before diving in to create and implement your strategy and growth plan, you really need to know exactly where you, your people and your business stand right now.
The “Business Growth Readiness Health Check” Survey has been designed to address the above issues and the questions you to will need to ask yourself and be able to respond to confidently when potential investors or lenders ask them.
Implementing these steps prior to commencing due-diligence for additional funding to implement your plan will give potential partners confidence in you and your management team and may reduce your cost of funding.
So, we created this Health Check to help us, working closely with you, to understand where your business currently stands; the actions you have already taken to prepare your business for growth and to identify all additional actions that are required before moving forward to create your strategy and customised business plan .
Once you complete the survey we will review your responses with you to determine & agree any additional steps or fine-tunes that might be required.
Then we will prepare a report with recommendations and at that stage we can both decide whether we want to continue to work together on the creation and implementation phase of your strategy and customised growth-plan.
