To achieve successful growth, you need a plan for it. So now’s the time to:

  • Evaluate the opportunity. Some sectors will benefit more from the recovery than others. So network with customers, suppliers, rivals and trade associations to see what everyone expects in your industry.
  • Examine your business. It might be time to change strategy. Where once you focused on dependable markets and tight cost control, now it’s time to be more open to opportunity.
  • Check organisational strengths and weaknesses. Can your business cope with a pick – up in demand? Run a capacity check to see what you could produce on current resources.
  • Update your business plan – to reflect the changing operating context. Set new targets and lay out a clear roadmap.
