Looking to improve and grow the profitability your business?
Sometimes it's difficult to know where to find the time to work on your business, instead of in your business, and objectively where to start first. Whether it's planning and strategy for the future, processes, brand development, marketing, compliance, recruitment, training or performance, there is always an exciting yet long list of areas you want to spend more time getting stuck into, but never manage to.
Improved turnover is not just about doing more and making savings is not just about cutting costs.
Let us help you start finding some of the immediate opportunities.
In the Margins
Improving your business
It's not always significant change that makes the biggest difference. You might be pleased to hear that. The Resi and New Homes market is tough at the moment, but we believe there is always room for improvement in anything, however good it looks, however good it might actually be, and it's the really successful businesses that often get complacent about not looking to make things even better.
Whether you are looking to grow the business, make it more profitable for the shareholders or for exit, the improvements are usually found in dozens of places in the margins, there are few silver bullets.
The secret is never to compromise, never to accept that 99% is good enough, or that in the grand scheme of things, it's not worth the opportunity cost of trying to find them.
How can we help?
Business can always learn a lot from high performance sport.

When asked what he had improved, he answered, as many things as he could find by 1%, knowing their combined influence would be a significant improvement in performance. Even the weight of the paint on the bikes was made lighter. What he called the theory of marginal gains.
