The first half of 2018 has gone!
The first half of 2018 has gone! The longest day is behind us and the nights will start to draw in. Before you know it, we’ll be counting down to Christmas…
OK, that may be excessive, but the year IS flying by. It’s time to check progress against your goals and adjust either the goals or your action plan if you aren’t on target.
There’s still time to make those adjustments that will make sure that you can recover any ground you’ve lost.
There’s also enough time to make significant changes in your business if you’ve realised you have the wrong people in key places, or that one service or product isn’t paying it’s way, or even that you need better processes to be sure of your numbers!
One thing’s sure though, and that’s that you need to act NOW. Book some time into your diary, together with your management team or financial controller, bookkeeper or accountant, and make sure that you know exactly where you are. Leave this for another month, until after your holiday, or your next project is completed, and it will drift, and you’ll realise that you’re looking for your winter woolies and haven’t made any tangible progress.
You’re not on your own!
If you’re unsure of how to set measurable goals, how to work out which KPIs you should monitor to make the most difference to your business, or need help with your management information, why not get in touch! We can help, either by supporting your existing team, tweaking your systems to provide the right information, or by taking the project off your hands and giving your the numbers (and an explanation!) as frequently as you need.
We’re fully flexible and really happy to work with you at the level of involvement you need, for as long as you need us. Why not have a chat now, and let us help you ensure that the second half of 2018 is far more productive than the first!
