Unlock Doors With an Independent Business Analysis

Small businesses come in all shapes and sizes. Maybe it’s a real estate brokerage needing targeted lead generation. Maybe an automobile service garage specializing in high-performance cars needs to find the breaking point between more business and hiring another mechanic. If it’s a specialty bakery, at what point does it make sense to expand business hours?

Businesses are as imaginative and varied as the people who start them, but every successful small business will face issues that force the founder to spend too much time at tasks they’re not good at instead of those that made the business succeed in the first place. The good news is that these kinds of problems are symptoms of success, not failure. Entrepreneurs contacting us for an independent, professional business analysis come away wishing they’d called sooner and unlocked doors they didn’t know were there.

The overall goal of a business analysis will show the owner what’s working well and how to do more of it, and what’s not working and how to do less of that. Think, here, of the SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) matrix in a formal business plan. We can show a business owner how to quantify these and not only create a strategy for further success, but a road map on how to get there.

The first step in a business analysis happens before work begins, where we discuss  what you need, the criteria for our agreement, and its terms. This meeting gets both sides on the same page.

Second is the analysis period itself, where we do our research and determine the salient data points showing strengths and problem areas. We use this information to generate a report for the client. At that point, it’s up to the client to determine whether or not they’d like to proceed with a lengthier consultation.

Any successful business needs a helping hand now and then. Contact us if you’d like to start with a business analysis of your company.

Remember, running a business successfully does not need to be complicated.  Keep it simple!
