What is DO-IT?
DO-IT is our methodology for assessing and improving your business. Whether you want to improve your business to scale, or whether it’s to sell, we can help you…
We improve your business through 4 phases of activity
Diagnose: We start the process with an initial free consultation to understand the issues you are facing and determine whether we can accept you into our programme. If accepted, we will then take you through a detailed assessment, followed by a half day workshop with your key team members to prioritise the issues. After this we will produce a 100 day plan to address them.
Overhaul: During this phase we will work with you to simplify the selected problem processes. This will remove time and materials wastage. We will also aim to deliver quick wins to immediately help your bottom line.
Integrate: In this phase we will look at opportunities to link up your systems and automate processes. We may deploy new software if required and of course, we will train your team.
Track: We will help you to put in place metrics to ensure you can monitor the new processes and take early corrective action in future.
DO-IT Methodology considers 174 processes in your business
During the Diagnose phase, we will review 174 processes in these 14 areas:
This review will look at current pain points in your business and identify opportunities to streamline and improve them.
Focus during the 100 day plan will be on working with your team to identify and remediate your most pressing problems. Further cycles of improvement can then be undertaken either with our support by your own team
Improving your business is not all about new systems – it’s about making your business systematic
You need to be systematic about how your business operates, with clearly industrialised processes at every step and metrics in place to measure and monitor in order to grow your revenue without an equal growth in your costs.
If you’re not sure you need to do this then imagine that the world goes mad for your product or service tomorrow – it’s the new craze. Then consider whether you could double your staffing fast enough to double your revenue? Not really a practical option for most businesses. It is probably not desirable either since all those additional people will need to be brought into your company’s culture and learn the right processes before you let them loose on your customers.
Even if your growth ambitions are more modest, it makes sense to industrialise your business before you aim to expand it. This will to make sure every sale you make is earning you maximum profits.
