Need assistance in developing these two critical business resources?
We work with you through the process of defining your vision, values and goals as well as your SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats). Your vision is then developed into strategies and the action plans to deliver those strategies.
This can be a challenging and time consuming exercise – especially when you are consumed by the day to day running of your business. Nonetheless these planning tools are crucial to your success and therefore need to be created.
Businesses go through various phases in their development. There are five distinct phases and knowing the symptoms of each phase provides a good basis for diagnosing where you are in the development cycle. New challenges present themselves to the owners of businesses as they reach a crisis in each phase.
Not being aware of what phase of growth they are in, and the skills needed to make the transition to the next phase, is the cause of many business owners downfall.
The first phase of business (start up) requires entrepreneurial energy, creativity and customers all provided by the new owner. The owner wears many hats and performs most of the day to day operational duties eventually becoming bogged down in the overwhelming responsibilities. There is a crisis of leadership and what is required is Systems & Process.
2. Systems & Process
The challenge during this phase is developing and implementing the processes and systems to allow growth to occur in a structured and controlled manner. Systems are used to measure and track the performance of the business and its people. Formal communication, recruitment and management processes are rolled out.
Things are great for a time – then another challenge arises when employees start demanding more autonomy and control in their roles. This drives the business decision to transition to a Delegation phase.
This phase is extremely difficult for the business owner as he/she feels the pangs of loss of control of their “baby”. The delegation of responsibilities to employees requires trust and the definition of agreed criteria to allow the owner to make the transition work.
The management model goes from top down to a team based format. Next comes the Coordination phase.
This phase is required as the organisation becomes increasingly fragmented (created by people doing their own thing in the third phase). There is a need for more sophisticated controls and delivery of strategic top down programmes to regulate behaviour.
Unfortunately these very initiatives eventually can create bureaucracy and stifle creativity as well as responsiveness to the changes in the business environment.
The business has come full circle and there needs to be a focus on collaboration, innovation and cross functional team based initiatives. Rewards and incentives are developed to be geared for teams and individuals. Training and education programmes become a focus as does greater spontaneity and flexibility.
Skilful handling of interpersonal issues replaces rigid human resources rules.
Most growing businesses are in phases 1 to 3 – what phase is your business in?
