Running a successful business is all about making the right decisions. Some decisions are so massive that you sit down and carefully plan them out. Do I buy those new offices? Should I invest in that plant? But, in most cases, the decisions that ultimately will decide whether you succeed or fail are the ones that you take on a daily basis.
The ones that you take without any guidance.
The ones that you take and try to second-guess the outcome.
Here’s a question…
Are the outcomes of the decisions you’ve taken today consistent with those you took yesterday, or those you will take tomorrow? Do you know what difference they will make?
Financial forecasts are not about “How long is a piece of string?” They are about providing you with a proactive tool that enables you to see the impact of your daily decisions on the future of your business. How fundamental to your success is that? And this is exactly what you get with our DecisionMAKER programme.
Here’s how it works:
- STEP 1: We meet with you to gather the information we will need to create your own DecisionMAKER guide. Don’t worry about trying to second-guess what’s going to happen in the future. We will take you through a proven approach to ensure that your guide is as accurate a picture of the future as it can possibly be.
- STEP 2: Once we have the first draft in place, we will sit down with you again and go through various scenarios and outcomes until you and we are happy that the final picture we have is as clear a guide as possible to your future business performance.
Now you have a clear vision of your future in place. We don’t stop there, though. If we stopped there, then your guide would suffer the fate of all forecasts you’ve done before and simply gather dust as it got more out of date.
- STEP 3: Every month we update the figures against your actual performance. Now you can start to make decisions based upon the impact of current and future events. Now you’re in charge.
What’s more, when you are considering key decisions such as a price rise, a new employee or maybe an increase in workspace, we can do some ‘what if’ analysis with you to help investigate the various outcomes. Now you’re no longer taking decisions in the dark.
