Planning & Improvement

The Rycom Business Planning and Improvement program uses a 3-step process to achieve results:

1. Business Assessment

This is an evaluation of your company’s situation as it is today. Often business managers have difficulty in fully and objectively appreciating their current position. The Business Assessment will help you to:

  • Understand current performance against objectives.
  • Identify key strengths and core competencies.
  • Identify areas that require improvement.
  • Clarify opportunities for growth.
  • Assess likely market impacts on your business.
  • Product cost and margin analysis.

2. Strategy Development

Developing the right strategy for your business means analysing your company and its market, and identifying the growth paths to your goals. The greatest chance of success comes from a comprehensive and integrated approach to improving all areas of your business:

  • Vision & Strategy

    Clearly stating your vision for the business and the strategies to be used.

  • Sales & Marketing

    Refocusing your sales and marketing efforts to win and keep customers.

  • Operations

    Updating your operational procedures, including management of suppliers as well as service delivery.

  • People

    Making sure you have the right skills and necessary staff commitment to meet the challenges ahead.

  • Finance
