Do you have a specific project that requires the experience of a good manager with a proven track record? Our team is used to the challenge of managing people or projects to ensure objectives are met. We have a simple philosophy when it comes to managing projects.
Initiation – This is where the goals and objectives are set. This is the most serious part of the project management operation. The objective is to identify the project goals and why you require them—usually the business case—and to do any initial research on the project feasibility.
Planning – The project planning process starts before work on the actual project begins and continues throughout the life cycle of the project. Its main goal is to adequately plan the time, cost and resources needed for the project and thus to reduce risk.
Execution – Project execution is when project planning is put into action and tasks against time are monitored to ensure the project succeeds. Tracking and monitoring every project element once it kicks off can make the difference between whether it succeeding in full or failing in part.
Monitoring – Project monitoring refers to the process of keeping on top of all project-related analysis, including team performance and task duration, identifying potential problems and taking corrective actions necessary to ensure that the project is within scope, on budget and meets the specified deadlines.
Closure – Project closure is an assurance that all the work has been completed, that all agreed upon project management processes have been executed, and recognition of the completion of a project by all involved.

Every small business owner has many different tasks and roles to take on each day and it’s often difficult to find the time to focus on a financial plan or financial review for their business. Developing a financial plan for your business is crucial to its future growth and success.
Developing and using a financial plan enables you to consider the areas in which resources are most needed for the business to grow, such as marketing, expansion, innovation or product development. Without this consideration, business decisions are taken with more risk, and small businesses could end up missing out.
The many advantages of financial planning in business include:
Personal Finance – Many small business owners will pay themselves enough to cover their National Insurance threshold so that their salary is tax-free. In the short term, this may prove to be an advantage, but a sound financial plan can help accumulate savings for life events in the future.
Cash Flow – You must look after and consistently review cash and debt levels to keep your business moving in the right direction. Its no good having an order book worth £100,000 when most of it is debt. Manage your age debtors and know the number of days on average each customers will pay you, following your invoice. Cash flow is especially important for new Start Ups.
Long-term goals – Think ahead and know what you will be doing in 5, 10 and 15 years, including retirement.
Will you decide to close down a business or sell it on? You’ll need to determine how much is required in order to fund your personal life.
Most business owners believe that the sale of their business will be enough to fund their retirement years, but in reality this often not the case. Putting away retirement savings on a regular basis into a private pension plan should be incorporated into financial plans for any small business, once it becomes viable. Seek expert advice.
Risk – Reduce the risk by spreading any investment across a range of different categories and seek out expert help when doing so. Any investments should be adequately diversified and in keeping with the amount of risk your business can sustain.
