|General Business Support|
|A business support project normally starts with a business review. In some cases this will be a comprehensive, in-depth exercise. However if the nature of the project is already clear a truncated version will be used so as to avoid wasting valuable time discussing matters not germane to the work to be undertaken.
Business Link conduct an in depth review free of charge as part of their delivery model. It is suggested that you explore this option by contacting Business Link and talking with a Business Adviser.
Business Review - Features & Benefits
A business review is an independent evaluation of your business.
Benefit: It is a resource that most businesses would not normally have access to. Depending on the depth review content It can be worth up to £1000 in the commercial market but this is part of the Sixwillow service as part of an overall support agreement.
If you require a review as a standalone exercise we suggest that your first contact is Business Link.
Feature 2 - The key driver of your business aspirations
The aspirations of the owner manager are fully taken into account.
Feature 3 - We look at the Barriers
Benefit: As part of the business review process (depending upon its depth) we look at the constraints, the financial structure, marketing activity capability and resource of the business.
Feature 4 - Real Analysis
Benefit: The value of the business review is the analysis process, looking at strengths and weaknesses and challenging existing thinking.
Feature 5 - It provides a complete picture
Benefit: The business review looks at as many aspects of the business required for the project so there is a holistic approach to addressing key issues.
Feature 6 - Robust Action Plan
Benefit: It provides a focus for effort, an outline of project content, and is measurable. Based on the strategy, tactical elements are incremental steps the business needs to make to achieve its objectives.
