Strategic Planning for Business Success
Cowden Consulting provides strategic planning for owners and directors of businesses enabling them to step back and plan the strategic direction for their business.
Here are the first key questions to ask:-
- What do we do well and why?
- What will our market place look like in three to five years' time?
- What's driving that change and where will they take the market
- What opportunities do those changes provide us
- How do we position the organisation to maximise our competitive advantage in that market.
Benefits of having a clear vision
Having a defined strategy also provides companies with a clear vision of the future, which is why companies such as Sheffield Forgemasters has emerged in a declining market as so successful. After a buyout in 2003 led by Graham Honeyman CBE, he has successfully grown from £38 million in 2003 to £117 million in 2010, by focusing on high value export markets.
This can be through careful evolution of companies such as Sustainability which demonstrates it vision in everything it does and its values also reflects the way it operates as a business advocating sustainability to business globally.
