Business Plans 

Strategic competitiveness results only when the firm is able to satisfy a group of customers by using its competitive advantages as the basis for competing in individual product markets. A key reason firms must satisfy customers with their business-level strategy is that returns earned from relationships with customers are the lifeblood of all organisations.

Giddens Burge will assist you to create, or refine, a set of documents prepared by a firm's management to summarise its operational and financial objectives for the near future (usually one to three years) and to show how they will be achieved. It serves as a blueprint to guide the firm's policies and strategies, and is continually modified as conditions change and new opportunities and/or threats emerge. When prepared for external audience (lenders, prospective investors) it details the past, present, and forecasted performance of the firm. And usually also contains pro-forma balance sheet, income statement, and cash flow statement, to illustrate how the financing being sought will affect the firm's financial position

Implementation or actions plans should:

  • Be realistic!!
  • Include details that are thought through.
  • Include stated assumptions.

Succession Planning

Identification and development of potential successors for key positions in an organisation, through a systematic evaluation process and training. Unlike replacement planning (which grades an individual solely on the basis of his or her past performance) succession planning is largely predictive in judging an individual for a position he or she might never have been in.

Strategic Planning Documents 

Develop an action plan for the strategy you've chosen to bring about a desired future, such as achievement of a goal or solution to a problem which allocates resources for their most efficient and effective use and then create internal documents that:

  1. Outline the organisation's overall direction, philosophy, and purpose.
  2. Examines its current status in terms of its strengths, weakness, opportunities, and threats.
  3. Sets long-term objectives.
  4. And formulates short-term tactics to reach them.
