The GAP Analysis
A plan without action is only a wish - action is what drives results. Unfortunately, many small business owners struggle with consistently maintaining the discipline necessary to sustain that action to grow and evolve their business. Those who can, create valuable and highly attractive businesses that have sustainable growth, great people, and good customer relationships.
Enhancing value in a business requires an understanding of where the business is today by honestly assessing strengths and weaknesses, then creating a plan to bolter strengths and to address weaknesses that can result in a more valuable business. This however requires a disciplined process for them to execute on. Best-In-Class operations are differentiated by how they operate, the actions they consistently take to drive value, in other words, the discipline they follow to achieve their objectives.
