What are the benefits of working with BusinessBlades? How will our business be better off?
You know where you want to take your business in future (and why). But is your business purpose and vision clear to your team? And your customers? Is your strategic and business planning tightly woven into that purpose and vision? Working with us is all about making your business work effectively to achieve its longer term objectives. We'll help you identify ways to improve engagement across your team, and customers (including potential customers). Which all contributes to improved financial results benefiting all stakeholders.
How does BusinessBlades get to know our business and understand our needs?
Your business is unique. Our initial objective is to understand what makes your business tick and your plans for the future. And we know it's important for you to be comfortable with us so our initial discussion with you and your relevant team members will be all about information sharing. Once we agree to work together the first formal step usually involves completing our business diagnostic.
Once BusinessBlades "gets us" what happens then?
The diagnostic provides the data that drives the rest of the process. It's designed to identify "symptoms" affecting the performance of the business. With that information, we work closely with the relevant people in the business to understand possible causes and implement solutions. We also provide ongoing review activity to help keep things on track. We'll tailor these services to meet the specific needs of your business and to suit your budget.
Can BusinessBlades help businesses at any growth stage?
BusinessBlades tailors solutions for businesses at every stage of development - start up, those wanting to embark on next level growth and more "mature" businesses. It's all about helping you achieve your objectives, regardless of where you currently are in the business cycle.
Does BusinessBlades work only with businesses in particular industries?
We're "industry agnostic". All our tools, processes and workshops can be applied in pretty much any industry. We're driven by our belief that successful businesses engage customers and teams through clarity of purpose, vision and strategy - that's true in any industry.
Can we engage BusinessBlades for one-off projects?
For sure. If you already know exactly what you need - be it facilitation of a strategic planning workshop, help with business planning, team engagement survey and follow up, or something else - we'd be happy to help. All you need to do is ask!
How does BusinessBlades charge for its services?
The honest answer is "it depends". Once we've had our initial conversation with you and developed an understanding of your situation and needs, we'll prepare a quote. What we do know is we're most likely more expensive than some and not as expensive as others! What's important is that you see value for your investment.
