You may have started your business to be your own boss, to be in control of your future and build a better life for your family. However, running your own business can sometimes turn out to be a beast of burden. Never enough time to sort out the mounting issues and a general sense of being out of control, leaving you with no time to spend with your family and friends. Your business begins to run you, instead of the other way around.
Get in Control
Through over 60 years of working with local businesses in the Albury Wodonga region, Johnsons MME works closely with our clients to recalibrate their help them retain control of their businesses.
At Johnsons MME, our business coaching program puts you back in the driver's seat. Through a ten week cycle with regular face-to-face sessions, we help you provide clarity to your business vision, improve financial management systems, boost profit and performance and articulate a clear pathway forward.
Tailored Programs to Suit You
We recognise this is not a one size fits all solution and so we have tailored three programs to suit businesses at their different life cycle stages:
- Starter: For new businesses that have been operating for between 1 – 3 years or people wishing to start up their own business;
- Growth: Businesses that are 3 – 5 years old and encountering issues such as cash flow problems, planning ahead, dealing with market changes, finding the right systems and people, financial management and problem solving;
- Excel: Mature businesses facing issues such as succession, remaining competitive, productivity or management stagnation.
- Overproduction – produce more than is required or before required.
- Waiting time – inefficient use of time.
- Transport – between processes, leads to loss of time and greater potential for things to go wrong.
- Inappropriate processing – using the wrong tools for the job at hand.
- Unnecessary inventory – direct result of overproduction.
- Unnecessary motions – relates to ergonomics such as bending, stretching and reaching in production.
- Defects – product issues relating to damage.
Performing an audit of your processes on a regular basis will help to identify where efficiencies can be gained. The next step is to put processes in place to ensure these gains can be maintained.
