How Organisation Charts Predict Your Business’ Future

Wouldn’t it be nice to start your business and know exactly where you are going to be in 2, 5, or even 10 years’ time?

Well, obviously if you are starting up a business, you will have read my articles on what you need to look out for – including the need to prepare your business plan, which is a way of mapping out your future. You may even have completed my online training on How To Start Your Business. Your vision-definition especially will be part of the planning process, and it envisions for you what your business should look like if you succeed in following your strategies.

“But”, you say, “Even my vision is what I hope my business would be like, I wish I could see what it will be like.”

Well, full disclosure, I do not have a crystal ball, but I do have a method where you can “see” with some clarity, what your business will look like, and it’s not about envisioning anything, it’s about creating your business structure now, in mind for the future.

Do Your Team Members Have Their Individual Objectives?

Do your employees have written Job Descriptions?

No? Okay, let’s slide past that one quickly!

I can’t tell you how important it is for effective teamwork that everyone has a Job Description that helps them do their job, and fit into the team working together to meet the business objectives.

After this week’s video I hope you will now prepare individual Job Descriptions, but even if you do have written Job Descriptions for all your team members right now, does it include a clear objective for their role that fits into the overall objectives of the business?

How To Automate Your Business And Take A Holiday

Here is a good measure of how your business is doing – as a business – and as your life’s achievement: can you take four weeks off and have a real holiday where you are not checking in?

Ultimately, that is the business we all started – the business that is successful and profitable and provides you with a lifestyle. But most of us work in businesses that are quite the opposite! Most small business owners are tied to their businesses and even if successful and profitable, certainly does not provide that lifestyle we all dreamt about. Most small business owners will be worried about taking too long a holiday from their businesses in case something goes wrong.

This fear can take the form of an angry customer that nobody else knows how to handle or what to say to him. It can take the form of an error in the day to day processes that only you know how to fix, or a new employee requiring training that only you can give her, or a decision about some outcome that nobody else can make.

The question is really about how you take the business that depends entirely on your knowledge and your ability to make decisions, to a business that runs like an automatic ticking clock? Read More

Creating Strategy – What Are Your KSI’s?

Are you dying to know what are your KSI’s? Well hold on a minute…

Really what I want to discuss is how you choose the right strategies when you are planning. You’ve probably taken some time off and wrote your Vision, Mission and Values Statement, and then detailed what this means in your day to day activity; you’ve probably brainstormed your Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, and worked out your goals for the year. But now, how do you choose between all the ideas to find the most critical strategies?

That’s where your KSI’s come in, or Key Strategic Issues.

Starting A New Business? Know Yourself First!

This week I’m giving you a free mini-training on one of the most important things to do when you start a new business – know yourself!

Even if you have already started a business, take a look at this 6 minute video that will take you through the key things to think about how you are set up to own and operate your own business. It’s from my online training course called How To Start Your Own Business.



The video takes you through whether you really understand what it takes to run your own business, and to be prepared for the curve balls that could come. It explains some traps and pitfalls and talks about getting a strong “purpose”, as well as the skills and character traits you will need.

For an expanded version of this module you should join my online training course called How To Start Your Own Business. It contains 5 lessons:

  • Your Personal Readiness
  • Analyse The Industry And Your Idea
  • Your Business Model
  • Planning
  • Implementation

as well as bonus material on how to write Position Descriptions and Organise Your Team, and You, Your Business, Your Purpose, Your Effort about entrepreneurial success.

Even if you have already started your business, join the course to learn about details that may be missing about how you’ve set up. For example the lesson on Your Business Model takes you through the relationship in your business between your value proposition, revenue streams, cost structures, key activities, key resources, customer segments, customer relationships, channels and key partners. The way these interact is important for any business.
