Planning for business growth in 2013?

BillyBilly

“Strategy?  Strategy! I never got to where I am today thinking about strategy.”

There are two types of people who run businesses. Those whose eyes glaze over when they hear the term “strategic planning”, and those who are over enthusiastic when the phrase is mentioned and embrace it fully.

Most business owners I work with share the former trait, they are very operationally focused.  Sales and selling, new customers, people performance, maintaining margins and an obsession in meeting customer needs are where they feel most comfortable.

Now is the time of year to stick their heads above the parapets, to gather their management teams to review 2012 and plan for 2013. To get down and dirty, dust off last year’s  SWOT and bring it up to date.  To review last year’s targets and performance, set targets for 2013, first identify and then plan to align resources, and re-plot the path to the long-term objectives.

Yes, that’s what I will be working on – strategy – over the next two months with clients old and new.

See the recent recommendation from Walter MacDonough of property specialist Alan Caren and Partners Ltd.

“Billy Linehan of Celtar business consultants facilitated the development of a new strategic plan for our company. He worked with us in a time of challenge and change and shared a framework for long term business planning, aligning company objectives with departmental & staff goals.

He identified critical business issues to target as part of the strategic review and together we developed a growth plan for the business.

Billy has provided excellent advice to the directors of Alan Caren and Partners Ltd (Property, Facilities & Building Consultancy specialists), and we recommend his services to other growing companies.
