What is a management consultant and how can I use him/her?

03.07.2018 at 05:44h

Hello Elena, there are Management Consultants to help with any and every aspect of business management. In your case, do you have a clear strategy or are you just running the business on an ongong basis? Do you have a clear end goal (both personal and for the business)? Research suggests that business owner/managers who work with a Mentor are more resilient and achieve higher profits. In my opinion it is important for every business owner to have clearly defined succession plans and exit stra... read more

How to build a green field consultancy?

02.07.2018 at 05:14h

Hello Marieta, This is an interesting and highly relevant question. As automation and lean processes spread across the Corporate sector, more people are finding themselves redundant, and at an earlier age. I encourage people thinking about developing a self-employed consultancy practise to start on their business plan while still in full-time employment. In my experience, most people underestimate how long they will require to build a sustainable revenue stream. This is especiallly so if they... read more

Where to find interested LEAN Consultants for Romanian market?

18.09.2018 at 12:20h

Hello Adrian, I am a member of ibd Business Advice Group. We are all self-employed specialists collaborating to bring greater impact to bear on solutions for our clients. Several of my colleagues have led large scale lean management implementations, some have worked in Romania previously and/or have Romanian language skills. Because of our structure, we have much lower overheads than most large consultancy firms and this is relected in our rates. I would welcome an opportunity to have a more ... read more

Who can contribute with ideas as I need a bit of help with a SOP?

28.11.2018 at 05:18h

Hello Raluca, Most people learn better through experience than through reading a document. Therefore, if practical, it would be better to teach this in small groups. Because of the statutory compliance requirements in a bank, every staff memebr needs to be familiar with the Company Operations Manual and this document should detail the specific steps and questions that are mandatory for each type of customer transaction. Beyond that, I think it is better if staff are trained to interact inteli... read more

Have you encountered an efficient way to deal with key-man-risk dependency?

17.05.2019 at 05:10h

Hi Christian, As soon as an organisation is large enough, you need to ensure that your key people are (ideally naturally inclined to) delegating and focussing on developing a successor. I find that self-confident people want to share and develop their people, insecure people will tend to cling to knowledge and not want to develop their people. At this stage you must be prepared to hire and fire to maintain and develop the team.  Another imperative is to develop Corporate Knowledge as quickly ... read more

How to restructure a new fast-growing business with tangible products?

15.10.2018 at 03:35h

Hi Marieta, I am guessing that the founder(s) are still managing the business 'hands on' with little support? In which case this is a classic example of a business becoming too big for the owner to manage in his head. The business needs systems in place quickly to help stabilise and manage the continuing growth. To speed things up and avoid decisions that are difficult to reverse, I would look to appoint interim managers into key positions. They will have the specialist knowledge and experien... read more

How to build the CRM?

28.06.2018 at 06:42h

In practise, the answers to your questions will depend on the size and complexity of the business. In a smaller business, an off the shelf solution should work and provide sufficient customisation capability. The key will be in selecting the right person to 'own' the project, and securing user buy in. In a larger organisation, a more bespoke solution is likely to be needed. You will need time to 'sandbox' this and get user feedback ahead of implementation.  read more

How to best quantify benefits for multi-skilling and cross-utilization?

13.08.2018 at 05:59h

This will be challenging in any larger organisation. I am convinced that multi-skilling can lead to better customer service. In an earlier life (a small regional airline), I had staff who were trained to work both in our call centre and on ticket sales and customer-facing support. One or two of them were trained and current as cabin crew as well. This gave great flexibility, made the job more interesting for motivated staff and saved us from delays and cancellations as well. To implement eith... read more

How to convince companies to dedicate time for Optimization and Innovation

13.08.2018 at 06:07h

In a sales context this is a frequently given client/prospect objection. In my experience it is often not the only real objection to proceeding. Only by finding valid reasons to remain engaged will you be able to make any progress to resolving these objections. It may be better to find oblique ways to maintain contact, for example by offering information that you think may be of value to them in a different context, than to keep directly pushing your agenda. Ultimately there will be no sale u... read more

How to efficiently obtain Customer information in questions?

17.05.2019 at 04:57h

Hi Marieta, How large is the new customer base, is it B2B or B2C? In my experience, there is no better way than a face to face interview with each customer, but they need to be of high enough potential value to justify the costs.   Best regards, Colin read more

How to set a debt recovery KPI for a Legal director?

19.10.2018 at 05:09h

Really? A competent Legal Director should not need a KPI to focus on this. Debt should not have been allowed to stay unresolved for such a time. Debt recovery at that point is usually better out-sourced to speciallists (I can make a recommendation if you wish). Or is your client looking for measurable reasons to replace their Legal Director? read more

How to unlock the Artificial Intelligence's true potential?

17.05.2019 at 05:23h

Hi Marieta, My experience of AI is limited to applications related to operational decision support. I do think that at this stage step changes will only be achieved by big-budget R&D (such as IBM Watson). I think that at a small company or departmental level the old rules still apply. If you want to use any form of automation to improve a process, first make sure that you fully understand the process and have designed a manual process that reliably produces the desired outcome. Then look for ... read more

Need help with writing a Business plan

07.10.2020 at 10:23h

As others have said, definitly write it yourself. Search online for 'business plan(ning) software', there are several good Cloud-based solutions available. These will provide a structure and prompt you for the content that you need to create. Also consider who the plan is for, is it just to guide you through setting up and running the business, or is it aimed at attracting outside finance? If external funding is required then I would advocate using a freelance consultant to advise you. Search... read more
