Why businesses underperform

Review your Strategy and Processes to Improve Your Business

Many businesses perform at only 25-33% of their capacity across at least two of the four fundamental pillars – people, processes & data, marketing & sales and capital.

At the same time, they suffer from a lack of co-ordination and synchronisation across the pillars.  There are many reasons for this under-performance:

  • we are all busy and few businesses and few leadership teams have taken the time to install a system capable of being used consistently throughout the business
  • without an effective system, growth is difficult to measure, monitor and manage
  • leadership teams become too involved in the business and distracted from understanding trends and opportunities within their marketplace and developing the business
  • new recruits bring their own learnings and values and, because there is no system, these are allowed to slowly dilute the focus, effectiveness and spirit within the business
  • the effectiveness of the marketing activities are neither measured properly nor effectively reviewed
  • very few businesses measure the performance of their people properly
  • as the business grows, meetings become ineffective and a source of negativity
  • the right people are increasingly difficult to find and too many compromises are made
  • there are time consuming, energy sapping conflicts between the leadership team and the principal shareholders.

We all have busy schedules.  Consequently, few businesses have installed a system to enable the leadership team to readily measure, monitor, manage and motivate performance throughout the organisation and to develop a great and enduring culture.
