Do you have a contingency plan for success?
Have you defined your Olympic gold yet?
I recently challenged you to decide what you were striving for – to define what Olympic gold in your business would look like to you. Being determined to continue growing, attracting more clients and bigger contracts is all part of the plan for serious small businesses.
If that is the case, you are definitely in for a much, much busier working day. Did you ever wonder how you were going to handle that?
Striving for success without actually planning for that success is an easy oversight, committed by many growing businesses. We get so involved in going for it, we forget to forecast what resources will be needed when all that hard work pays off.
I recently read a blog about an organisation which increased its business by 500%. Great news, of course – but they weren’t ready for it, and it nearly sank them.
Our clients are supporting businesses at an executive level – and they make very sure they know how they are going to deliver exactly what they’ve promised.
Your business may be running smoothly now, but when the pace increases and you’re pushing for that personal best, will your systems be able to keep up? You have (hopefully) put contingency plans in place for IT failures, electricity outages or disasters at the office. But do you have a contingency plan for success?
