Cashflow is the lifeblood of every enterprise. All successful organizations know their numbers and keep a keen focus on these vital KPIs, but what is often lost in the analysis is the fact that cashflow is the result of all the output of an organizations work. It is derived from those actions the organization has control over which is directly related to the environment in which the work is done, ie. the economic and business environment which the organization does not have any control over. When the business and economic realities suddenly change, an organization can be overwhelmed by this and get fixated on doing more of the same to increase cashflow.
This can be futile and most of us realize that doing more of the same won’t get use to a different place. Something needs to change and a focus on what can be controlled takes over. Austerity sets in as the new reality and this is the death nail for growth. We all understand that to increase cashflow we need to focus on growth but how can you do that when you must do more with less? That is what we specialize in.
We can help you reorganize your business so you can maximize your current cashflow, optimize operations and technology to do more with less and devise a strategy to grow cashflow in the new normal.
People are any organizations biggest asset! You cannot grow an organization without engaged people who are committed to giving 110% every day. This can be difficult to achieve when challenging times hit and everyone is concerned about their own future health and financial prospects. People are critical to the success of any organizational change management initiative which is what is required in challenging times. We austerity measures need to be implemented, people get disoriented and fearful. This can turn a bad situation worse and your biggest asset can become a liability!
Communication at all levels becomes imperative and can make or break an organizations culture:
- Engaged people can disengage and all stakeholders can feel the impacts.
- Co-workers become concerned and the conversations around the water cooler turn very negative.
- Customers sense something is wrong but service gets impacted.
Fortunately, there are solutions and prudent counsel can avoid many mistakes where lemons can turn into lemonade. We can help you identify the bottlenecks in your organization and re-engage your people so they can help your organization thrive!
Risk Management is a vital topic and one that gets little attention often until it’s too late. Who hasn’t said, “If I only did this or that” before the crisis hit! When things are going well, we often focus on risk as a necessary evil. We buy insurance to transfer the liability that we can’t avoid and suck it up as a cost of doing business. This approach is highly inadequate and in challenging times becomes all too apparent. Risk management is not only about the risks we know and are evident, but it is also about the risks we don’t know but should. Those risks which are highly unlikely but could be catastrophic to our survival. How do you plan for the unknown you say? Well it comes down to asking the right question and creating contingency plans just in case.
This is where we can help! We know the right questions and can help you make prudent decisions regarding contingencies which need to be in place not only before a crisis occurs but more importantly while you are in crisis and working your way out.
