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 de-stress and spend time with your family. 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 has seen this scenario many times before. We have worked closely with business owners to recalibrate their businesses enabling them to get back in control.
At Johnsons MME, we have established a business coaching system that 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. We help you to uncover your business blind spot.
You can elect to undertake the ten week business coaching sessions in a group with like-minded business owners or by yourself, but our pledge in all of this is to keep you on track and accountable with regular review sessions and assignments to help you to unlock the potential of your business. Together we tailor solutions to your people, products and finance issues, accelerate their implementation and fast track you back on the road to success.
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.
