Strategy

Business strategy is the foundation of a successful business. But there are of course different types of business strategy. The idea is that business strategies should steer a course between the inevitable internal pressure for business continuity, and the demand of a rapidly changing world for revolutionary business strategies.

Business managers and entrepreneurs are often so preoccupied with immediate issues that they lose sight of their ultimate objectives. That is why a business review or preparation of a strategic plan is a virtual necessity. This may not be a guarantee for success, but without it a business is much more likely to fail. Therefore, a healthy plan should:

  • Serve as a framework for decisions or for securing support and approval.

  • Provide a solid basis for more detailed planning.

  • Explain the business to others, in order to inform, involve and motivate.

  • Assist benchmarking as well as performance monitoring.

  • Stimulate change and become a strong building block for the next plan.

A critical review of past performance by the owners and management of a business and the preparation of a plan beyond normal budgetary horizons require a certain attitude of predisposition and mind. A few essential items which should to be observed during the review and planning process, include the following:

  • Be midterm (two to four years)

  • Be undertaken by owners or directors themselves

  • Focus on areas of strategic importance

  • Be separated from day-to-day tasks

  • Be S.M.A.R.T. (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Time-bound)

  • Distinguish between cause and effect

  • Be reviewed periodically

  • Be written down.

As the precursor to developing a strategic plan, it is advisable to clearly identify the current status, objectives and strategies of an existing business or the latest ideas in respect of a new business venture. If properly defined, these can be used as the basis for a critical examination to probe existing or perceived Strengths, Weaknesses, Threats and Opportunities (‘SWOT’). This will then lead to strategy development, covering the following issues discussed in more detail below:

  • Mission

  • Vision

  • Values

  • Objectives

  • Strategies

  • Goals

  • Programs

The overall direction of a company and its goals are major driving factors in its success. Whether you want to use rapid expansion as a framework for growth, return to core activities or develop a first-time strategy that management can use for the future, Globalor can provide guidance and support, no matter the sector, in developing a roadmap that will lead to growth and financial reward.

Outsourcing

Maximizing profits during an economic slowdown or recession is possible if businesses maintain lean operations. One way to do this is by outsourcing non-core functions or business processes. Business Process Outsourcing (‘BPO’) companies of today have matured into professional businesses. Strong (both local and global) competition has driven them to increase their services level and improve business processes. BPO staff are skilled, experienced, qualified, and trained to meet industry standards.

 Selecting the right BPO company is critical to the success of this type of venture. The business principles of the outsourcing firm should align with your business policies, communication should be timely and transparent, reporting should be exhaustive and prompt, and quality of work should at least meet, but preferably exceed, expectations. The right outsourcing provider could actually do the job much better than you, in less time and for less money.

Outsourcing firms in general can offer greater value than in-house operations for many reasons:

  • They work for more than one client and therefore have a cost effective platform

  • They have the benefit of large discounts due to bulk orders given to suppliers

  • They can leverage their economies of scale

Globalor Limited therefore recommends that companies focus on their core activities. By outsourcing costly and burdensome peripheral tasks, a company can reduce costs, boost efficiency and deliver value-added services to its clients. We advise clients on the best type of services to outsource and how to go about implementing the process.

Exposure

There are a number of media forms you can use to increase your company profile and exposure, depending on your business. We can help you create a professional image and/or design and then devise the best way to sear that image or brand into your target markets’ mind, both off-line and online.

 

Globalor can come up with marketing strategies for clients’ services or products taking into account the clientele and market.
