Business Plan

A great business planning process gets to the heart and soul of your business.

Why we developed this service.

Success is about planning; we want to help you achieve success.

A great business planning process gets to the heart and soul of your business. Upon completion of ‘pre-work’, we’ll have a greater understanding of your vision and core values in order to facilitate a four-hour planning session to help you create a clear Business Plan.

The outcome of this service is to identify and prioritise goals, both short term and long term, create strategies to achieve your goals, enable you to review actual performance against targets and establish a 90-day action plan to address immediate and critical issues.

A Business Planning session will require you to take time out from day to day activities in the business to focus on the business.  Together we will review your past performance and clarify future direction.  

You will set solid and realistic business goals and define strategies for achievement.  At the end of the session, you will have a one-page Business Plan which will act as a guide map to ensure you are on course for success.

If you answer yes to any of the following questions, we recommend you undertake Business Planning.

Would you like:

  • To increase the level of growth, profitability and cash flow in your business?
  • Support to unlock your business potential?
  • A clear outline of what you need to do to unlock this potential?
  • A document against which to measure your progress?

You attend a four-hour planning session facilitated by Nathan, Peter or Rory.

The key issues covered will be:

  • Discussing and setting both personal and business goals for the next 12 months
  • Discussing and agreeing on an action plan with strategies to support the achievement of goals
  • Identification of Gross Revenue Targets and Key Performance Indicators
  • Identification of opportunities and vulnerabilities in your business that needs to be managed
  • Establishment of a 90-Day Action Plan to address immediate critical issues

We will provide you with pre-work, which you will need to complete prior to the Business Planning session to ensure you identify any issues that need to be discussed.  That way we can prepare any information required prior to the session.

  • Gives you a chance to review and set the direction of the business
  • Eliminates procrastination
  • Helps you to find common goals amongst a number of Directors (if applicable)
  • Identifies and prioritises your key goals
  • Creates strategies for you to achieve your goals
  • Identifies what you will need to achieve your goals. This could be a combination of marketing, training, performance management, increased resourcing and cost-cutting
  • Sets timeframes for achieving goals and therefore provides accountability
  • Provides a tool to communicate your business goals and vision with your Team
  • Divides your goals into short term and long term – Quick Wins vs. Key Projects
  • Provides you with a template to review actual performance against targets
  • Provides you with a platform to develop Financial Forecasts
  • Gives you a basis for you to set team members’ individual goals / targets.

Don’t take our word for it, see what others have to say about us.

“Such a valuable sounding board to say the least for me, it’s a great way to take advice from someone who is in a growing and successful business rather than someone who has it in theory. Would recommend this service to any entrepreneur or new business in a second.”

Yesterday’s business planning session was definitely a great thought provoking exercise. I’ll need a bit of time to digest things but I’m sure there a number of other ideas that I will come back to you with. Thanks again Peter, I feel very confident now that we have made the right decision moving to your services. I can see how this partnership will add huge value to our organisation in the long run!

Matthew Scott Technical Director, On Guard Security Solutions Ltd.

As a new business, the business planning session with MHCO aligned us as Directors and Shareholders and collated all of the most important factors we needed to consider together into one place. We walked away with a ton of motivation to put this plan into action and grow the business. We’re already looking forward to our next Quarterly Coaching session with Pete and knowing that we are being held accountable to our actions ensures we actually get them done!
