As a business owner, you know your business inside out. You know that things don’t seem right but you can’t put your finger on why. Tasks that used to “just happen” now take twice as long to get done. Everything and everybody looks inefficient and awkward. Clients point out that you aren’t the same business they started dealing with years ago. What can you do?
These are usually the classic signs of a growing business still trying to work like a small business. When you start your business, you are the person who has a hand in everything but as you grow, cracks start to appear.
This is where a Business Process Analysis (BPA) consult proves useful. Our experienced consultant will take a close look at your documentation, policies and procedures and identify ways things can be tweaked and improved. Example: when you are a smaller business it may be an easy process to manage stock in an Excel spreadsheet but when you are a larger enterprise, a dedicated app may be more sensible.
After you consult, you will get a series of costed recommendations that can help improve your business work flows, trim costs and take the pressure off yourself.
So when that little bird inside your head tells you something is wrong – our best advice is to listen. You will be glad you did.
