Most small to mid-sized companies are so busy conducting the business of the business that senior managers never find the time to complete the annual or long-term plan they know they need. We can assist in providing a structure; facilitate planning meetings, and developing customer-focused key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure performance towards important growth objectives. ICG Consulting creates this plan through listening to the ideas and thoughts generated during management planning sessions.
Planning creates more than just a roadmap for the future. Planning is equally as much about the process as it is about the end result. By involving people at all levels of your organization in the planning process, you help to create an understanding and buy-in necessary to achieve positive results. Plans that are created from the bottom up, under the direction and vision of senior managers, will drive your company’s growth.
One client was a manufacturer of a technology product, and its owner maintained the business plan only in his own mind. We proposed the idea to involve his department managers in an annual planning procedure, resulting in a strong plan that all managers could understand and embrace. This business achieved a 50% revenue growth for the year.
