As a business owner, you may find it can be a challenge to develop and employ a strategic business plan. 

The process doesn’t come naturally for everyone, so some business owners benefit from external, experienced support that can bring insight and objectivity to creating a meaningful business plan, allowing for the successful development of your business.

It’s also common for some business owners to prefer working deeper within the business, rather than in a more withdrawn strategic role. An external business advisor allows you to focus on the day-to-day, knowing your strategy is in good hands.

Comprehensive analysis


We can conduct a thorough analysis of your business, the industry you operate in, and the market. In doing this, we’ll identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats to inform the development of a strategic plan.


Setting goals & objectives


We’ll work with you and your business to set clear and measurable goals that align with your company’s mission and vision. Understanding, developing, and clearly articulating these objectives is a fundamental exercise when forming the basis of a business plan.


Developing a strategic business plan


Using our detailed analysis and new objectives, we’ll then develop a strategic plan that outlines the actions needed to achieve your business goals. This can include developing a timeline, identifying the resources needed, and outlining the metrics for success. Committing to this plan is key, so we can also help to ensure the timeline is followed.


Identifying risks & challenges


There’s always potential risks and challenges involved with running a business. So, we’ll help to identify anything that could impact the success of your business plan and work with you to develop contingency plans.


Providing ongoing support


We won’t just write up a plan and leave you to it… Our team can provide ongoing support to ensure your strategic plan is implemented effectively, making adjustments as needed based on changes in the business environment.
