Small- To Medium-Sized Business Growth

Are you the CEO or MD of a small- to medium-sized business with ambitions to grow your business?

I have been working with your peer group to help them to create high-performing organisations with the structure appropriate for the whole team to drive the business forward in a dynamic way.

How am I doing this?

We start by working out a programme which involves the whole senior management team with the aim that all senior stakeholders are actively engaged in creating a high-performing organisation.

The following are the key areas for you to focus on and begin to develop in order to start building your high-performing organisation and position it for growth:
  1. A vision which all your staff can remember and relate to
  2. A set of values which blend what is important to your customers and employees
  3. A business strategy which delivers your vision and values
  4. A clear and objective performance and talent management infrastructure
  5. Ways of working that are simple and yet deliver results, such as, a common language for giving and receiving feedback
Your investment of time and money in focusing on these 5 core areas will deliver business growth.

On previous blogs I have covered vision, values and feedback and on future blogs I will cover how to develop a robust business strategy and a clear and objective performance management infrastructure so watch this space.

If this blog has developed your thinking at all please leave a comment or if there are other topics that you would like a blog on.

  1. You are great on planning and managing on how business will be successful,i agree to this term "Ways of working that are simple and yet deliver results, such as, a common language for giving and receiving feedback" that was a very good idea for me.Good job.

  2. When my business grew over the time, I realized we needed a new erp software to support our management processes. After the implementation of dynamics 365 for operations I can see how much we were missing out on!
