Consider Using a Business Growth Consulting Service

by Kevin Smith Author

Searching for a Business Breakthrough

As the great motivational speaker Tony Robbins points out, individuals often experience exponential progress upon beginning a new project, but a plateau or two must always follow when a certain amount of skill and knowledge have been attained. Businesses often experience the same growth pattern. Clientele and profits often grow exponentially at first, owing simply to the newness of the endeavor. As Robbins points out, any forward momentum means some degree of progress at first. As time wears on, however, this progress will inevitably slow, and business owners find themselves on often-frustrating plateaus. This is when it’s time for a concerted push to the next level, but the problem is, a great number of business owners don’t know how to enact that breakthrough. That’s where a business growth consulting service comes in.

Developing a Strategy

An integral part of any company’s success is its strategy. A company without a strategy is a ship tossed on the waves—there’s simply no direction and no vision for the future. Development of a strategic plan involves an assessment of the company’s growth goals and may take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. A quality consulting firm will spend plenty of time getting to know a company’s key players and developing a strategy that includes taking into consideration their personalities and work styles.

Finessing the Leadership

Company leadership is often a key point in advancing the quality and quantity of business. A good consulting firm will usually focus first on developing the leaders of a company further, resulting in a trickle-down effect in changing the overall quality of the organization. Strategies usually include development and education of existing leaders, as well as identification of future leadership candidates. Elimination of personal agendas is key to leadership development, as is an emphasis on adherence to the company’s long-term strategy.

Identifying Core Service Areas

Another key component in company growth is identifying the nature of its core service area. Many companies attempt to diversify services too soon or too quickly, and they end up leaving untapped valuable resources in their core areas.

A business growth consulting service can help a company realize the true potential of its core services and to maximize its interactions with trading partners to cater to those. Oftentimes, a formula is developed that can be applied over and over in these situations, ergo simplifying the company’s processes and allowing it to cater to more partners with its core services. Finally, cores sometimes need to redefined due to industry changes. A good consulting service helps companies identify which changes they need to adjust to and to develop strategies to revitalize their processes to better serve their trading partners.
