We provide physical, hands-on support to businesses and organisations move things forward.
Throughout our extensive experience we have noticed a common phenomenon in nearly every organisation which we call the 'Bandwidth Gap'. This bandwidth gap is what happens when everybody is so busy with their day jobs that new, potentially hugely profitable business opportunities, new products or other areas of innovation become stalled and basically go nowhere.
The value of lost sales and lost profits must be astronomical, all because there has been, until now very few ways for business leaders to bridge this bandwidth gap.
Here are some examples of bandwidth gaps:-
Whatever, or wherever the bandwidth gap is, we can help.
Our team have experience in multiple markets and segments and each member has personal, hands-on experience of physically doing the type of work that our clients simply can;t get done because of limited time or lack of in-house capability and experience.
The headline is that wherever the bandwidth gap is we can fill it and accelerate whatever it is that needs to be developed and progressed.
Examples of the type of work we do are as follows:-
Customers have questions, you have answers. Display the most frequently asked questions, so everybody benefits.
Our team have refined and developed a broad variety of propositions for clients.
Our work though is not just theoretical and we firmly believe that just because something looks compelling in powerpoint and someone is convinced of success it does not mean the new product, service or venture will ever be a profitable business.
We will develop the proposition using tried and tested techniques and not in isolation. As part of the work we will physically go out, into the market and talk face to face with potential customers, suppliers, partners and stakeholders in order to build a proposition based on what people actually say and think.
The output of this proposition development work can be relied upon to make informed decisions which are not based on hope or prayers but instead based on real facts and data.
As part of the development of any new initiative, new launch or product or service introduction the financial elements are critical.
Any assumptions within the business model and financial plan can lead to disaster and very large incorrect assumptions could dangerously damage the core business.
Our team specialise in building detailed, fully costed, fully validated financial business plans which include every aspect required to prepare, launch and scale the new initiative.
This work dramatically increases the chance of success, limits risk and in some cases, it may prove out that what appears to be a winner at the outset is no in fact, a good business opportunity at all.
Sometimes our clients have already developed the proposition and the financial model stacks up.
They have decided that the new product or service should be launched and a date has been set. Perhaps the launch has already happened but the existing commercial teams are not producing the results expected.
There can be many reasons for this lack of acceleration but in our experience, the problem is often one of limited bandwidth and focus.
Our team will engage and operate outside of the day-to-day functions so that we can focus solely and completely on the development and deployment of the new products or services, or business model.
In some cases, three months is enough to accelerate the new and non-core initiative and at the end of that time there is enough momentum for us to exit and hand back over to the client's own team.
In other cases, we have operated on a 'pilot only' basis for three to six months in order to 'test drive' the new product or service so that changes can be made before rolling out through the client's own commercial teams.
