  • Focus your Energy – be purposeful, don’t le things happen by accident. Think about why you bought or started your business in the first place. Did you just buy yourself a “job?” This is not what owning a business is all about. To grow and prosper you need to work on the business and work less in the business.

  • Opportunities : A good approach is to look at your strengths and ask yourself whether these open up any opportunities. Conversely look at your weaknesses and ask yourself whether you could open up opportunities by eliminating them. Threats : what is happening in the external environment that could threaten your business? Financial, Technological, Culturally, Competively, market saturation?

  • These are the elements that make up a good business plan. It’s an organized way of looking at the health and profitability of your business – current reality. Information you gather needs to be not only quantitative, but qualitative also: the nature of trends, impacts of new regulations, new factors that affect your customer base – Economic and Social trends . Distinguish facts from assumptions . Test the water. March 22, 2011 - The Non-Profit Toolbox Mini-Conference Website: www.pfpconsult.com Jacqueline Collins - President Partnering for Performance

  • Looking at yourself and your competitors using the SWOT framework will help you craft a strategy that helps you distinguish yourself from your competitors so you can compete successfully in your market. This tool helps you focus on your strengths, minimize threats, and take advantage of opportunities. Strengths : consider this from an internal perspective and from the point of view of your customers. Think about them in relation to your competitors – for example, if all your competitors provide high quality products, then a high quality production process is not a strength in the market, it is a necessity. Weaknesses : this should be considered from an internal and external basis: Do other people seem to perceive weaknesses that you do not see? Are your competitors doing any better than you?
