Innovation – Taking the right off-ramp
Your Business Model – Our Focus
The financial success of your venture depends on quite a few things working together and working well.
However, when you are in the thick of things, it is quite difficult to have perspective on what these things are and which of these are the most important at the time. It is our focus to assist in your perspective. But we don’t stop there. We look at the systems supporting your organisational capabilities, the human capital empowered by these systems, the innovation required to stay competitive and the focus on your customer. Ultimately it all comes together in you being able to reduce costs, do more business and thus being more profitable.
Your business processes are the wheels on which your strategy runs. If your processes support your strategy, you attain two results – lowering costs and increasing profits. If your processes and the software assisting your processes do not support your strategy, you live in a competitive disadvantage.
To address your strategy, a process that you need to do quite frequently, you need to reach Clarity™ in two aspects: Clarity of Objective – What are you trying to achieve? And Clarity of Cause and Effect – What influences what to reach your objective? Without Clarity, poor decisions are made. Poor decisions mean poor strategies.
