Methodology

Ghost programme

We break down your business using our Ghost programme to Map Your Goals, Build Foundations, Drive Reporting and Co-Pilot your business.

Goal

We first of all need to understand where you want to be.

Not so much from a business perspective but from a personal perspective and hence buy in is required from Directors, Shareholders and the team behind Clinical Skills alike.

The magic here is aligning your personal goals to your business and reminding you that the business exists to provide for you and your family firstly. By building a ‘vision board’ and anchoring these goals to the business results then it keeps the mind focussed on delivering business profit growth.

Goal

History

This is where we really get to know where you are now and drill down deep into not only the numbers, but the business model itself.

We look into revenue, staffing, margin and transaction values to understand what you do and then unwind your model to find out why you do it. 

History

Obstacles

As we will now know where you are and where you want to go then next we run through the obstacles that stand in your way. In our experience these obstacles are made of one thing, or rather lack of them, resources.

Usually this is due to the wrong time being spent doing the wrong things and therefore people, money, technology and time are being wasted. By discovering these obstacles, we can then develop a plan to overcome them.

Obstacles

Speed

Before we can prescribe a solution, we need to ascertain how fast you want to go. Our solutions involve both time and money, from both of our businesses so matching this to you requirements are key.

Largely, speed is dictated by your own ambition and drive, however if we go too fast, then I’m my experience we actually achieve less.

Speed

Transform

After going through the Solution and consultative process of getting to know where you are, where you want to get to, what is blocking the way and how fast you want to get there we can devise a Solution.

This is usually a combination of software applications and management reporting frameworks to report upon KPI’s. These are not Key Performance Indicators as most would see them, but Key Predictive Indicators, a leading metric and not a lagging metric.

Map Your Goals

Before you can start on any journey you need to know two things, firstly where you are now and secondly, where you want to be. By simplying this process you can visualise the gap and start to close it

Build Foundations

The foundations to any business are its people and its processes. We bring these together through rich data and then signpost the Next Steps so you are ready to grow your business.

Drive Reporting

Looking backwards only helps so far, but you can’t change the past. Instead of building Key Performance Indicators, we build Key Predictive Indicators as Alerts from your business systems. With the right business Alerts, you’ll have clarity and predictability along each step of your journey.

Co-Pilot

Making your business fly is difficult, this is why we work alongside you to extend your management team and give you independent support along each step of your journey.

Are you ready to start your journey to become more profitable and predictable?
