“We have been so
busy since we started
the business we rarely
have time for deep
where we need to be
in 2020. Working with
Chris gave us that
time but in a
structured format that
meant we could
agree solid strategies
and actions. Working
Accelerator is a great
way to access people
FD and Strategy Director.
Situation: Zoonou are a successful, fast growing technology business at
a critical development point on their growth journey. The Directors
were keen to establish a plan that would take them to 2020. The
business is a serious player in the software-testing arena and the
Directors could sense that the business had great latent potential that
they now needed to harness.
The challenge management faced was to extract themselves from the
day to day servicing of clients and running the business to spend
structured and quality time planning what this future would be.
Approach: Zoonou qualified for subsidies from the Growth Accelerator
programme. This effectively means that Zoonou only had to pay 50% of
my cost, the other 50% came from a government grant. (I am a
registered Growth Accelerator Coach).
I worked closely with the Directors leading them through a structured
set of 4 half-day planning sessions (plus homework). The sessions
revolved around a workbook that took us from vision and mission to
core business objectives, from Ansoff product strategies to Porters 5
Critically all sessions were grounded, practical and action oriented.
While there was time to brainstorm and reflect it was important that we
ended up with a practical action plan that could be implemented.
Outcome: The output was brief written report, presentation and action
plan. The outcome was a strategy and destination that was presented
to staff. A clear vision of where the business is headed and some
ambitious targets and deliverables along the way.
The management team have a roadmap that can be challenged and
reviewed over time.
