What running a better business means to you, and what it means to someone else could be vastly different things. It could be increasing your growth year-on-year, setting up internationally, launching a new product or service or it could be taking more time off to spend with your loved ones.
Whatever it means to you, we can help you maximise your chances of success.
The Factotum team consistently think outside of the box and have been instrumental in developing our international growth plans. The team have a wealth of knowledge, ideas and contacts, and are an integral part of the growth of our business now and into the future.
Like many businesses, we were impacted by COVID-19 and had to make some decisions. Having Bobby and the Factotum team at the end of the phone chatting through our options and helping us make a plan alleviated the stress and pressure we were feeling. We were able to make informed choices that were best for our business and team.
Businesses with a plan, are far more likely to succeed. Whatever stage your business is at, you need a plan. A plan ensures you improve accountability, have an engaged team, know how to measure success, and are focusing on what gets results.
We can help you put together a tailored plan for your business and goals. We’ll break it down into quarterly, monthly and weekly goals so you and your team are truly focused and know what success looks like.
As Peter Drucker famously said – “What gets measured gets improved.” Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) measures the key drivers in your business against the actual, quantifiable data over a specified period. They link directly to activities that impact performance.
We can help you establish the correct KPIs, understand how to accurately measure them, tie your team’s performance to them, develop strategies to improve them, and even how to display them.
Every business reaches a point where it needs to draw on outside experience. Our advisors have broad commercial experience and can support your business through an ongoing advisory role.
We can help by providing strategic advice and direction, by introducing your business to relevant connections in our networks, and by attending board meetings to provide counsel and insight into your market place. This role can be scaled to fit the level of support you require.
It is never too early to start planning what next. We work with you to consider exit scenarios and develop strategies to maximise business value.
There’s no one size fits all. We’ll look at it from a holistic perspective of what you want, what’s best for your loved ones, and what you’d like for your business. We can work with your accountants to make sure you’re being tax efficient throughout the process and that you’re making the best financial decisions possible.
