“Where are we now?” - the start point for most businesses as they enter into a planning phase. Understanding where you start from; the resources you currently deploy; their effectiveness and efficiency and the positive impact or constraint they will place on achieving objectives, is vital.
How to carry out this analysis can be challenging, so at Corve Consultancy Limited we have developed a Benchmark your Business diagnostic, that enables companies to address twelve areas of day to day business that may be frustrating your growth. This tool is designed to tell you about your business as opposed to the manufacture of your products or the execution of your service.
We can comment on that at a later date but, in the first instance, experience tells us that it is not the engineer’s inability to engineer, nor the solicitor’s inability to practice law which are the primary reasons why the component manufacturer or the legal firm are finding it hard in today’s ultra competitive market place.
It is our ability to deal with the many market and customer facing issues that confront businesses which can be the difference between success and failure – and, often, these are not the deep seated strengths that led entrepreneurs to establish their businesses in the first place. Those strengths will usually be product or service related and the curse for SMEs of all sizes is that no matter how good you are technically, it is no guarantee of success if the essentials of business strategy and marketing strategy are weak.
So if you choose to Benchmark your Business using the Corve Consultancy Limited diagnostic tool, then we will send you back a comprehensive report that tells you where you are now and recommends immediate actions to be taken.
