Review Your Existing Performance

In order to reach any goal it is important that you look at what has already been achieved. Reflect on the past year and think about;

  • What did you and your colleagues do and what didn’t you do?
  • What were the successes and failures?
  • In what areas of your company have you made the most progression, what areas have you remained stagnant?
  • Has there been changes within your work environment which have affected productivity/reaching targets?

Though you may find looking back at year previous year of work ineffective, it is vital to do this to make sure that you aren’t repeating the same practices or mistakes. The key to any business development & strategy planning is forward, positive thinking.

Define Your Own Successes

Another way to ensure that your strategy planning is heading in the right direction is by defining what you consider a success. Successes within business could include anything from raising your profile online, making investments or ensuring your customer service is of the highest standard. Depending on what stage your business is at and depending on whether you are looking to expand or remain at the same size; your business definition of success will differ. Therefore, make sure you find a meaning of success before creating an effective and worthwhile business development & strategy plan.

Hire a New Accountant

As mentioned previously, we believe that in order for any business to progress, accounting and finances should be stable and organised. Therefore if you are thinking of building a specific business plan, hire a new accountant. We explained in our last post that Making Tax Digital is going to be introduced soon! Make sure that your business is going about submitting taxes the right way and thriving in the financial department by choosing to find a new accountant.
