Is UK economy grinding to halt after the Brexit vote? Could this result in permanent reduction in growth?
Following the Brexit vote, Baachu has been busy the last couple of weeks keeping our clients focused on their medium term plan and to balance their growth strategy. Yes there is uncertainity in the external environment. There are things businesses can still do on their internal environment, risk assess their position and be prepared.
Here’s our little takeaway for any business small or big thinking about doing a strategy review.
Firstly, if there is no explicit and clearly documented strategy in place, now is definitely a good time to do it. We encourage you to formulate a balanced growth strategy and create opportunities around it.
However, if a strategy document is already in place for your business, it is a good idea to reflect on how it has served you so far.
If you have won some bids, but lost some, we strongly recommend a root cause analysis of your bidding strategy. Evaluate where your growth is coming from? New business (N) or Existing customers (R) or Acquisition (A)
How balanced is your approach to growth?
Simply what is current weightage of these three forms of growth? We call these weights – components of our Growth formula.
With the new market conditions, will current weightage still work for you? What percentage will suit you better? Why?
It is also vital to understand your capability issues and look closely at the type of opportunities that you have been bidding and operating to determine if these were indeed good choices.
Will my current capabilities enable me to succeed in the market place and support my new growth formula?
In the next article, I will discuss some of the tactics businesses can incorporate in achieving balanced growth and building capabilities around the growth formula.
