Top ten growth characteristics for small companies

Research shows that there are ten key characteristics of small companies that grow into larger profitable companies.

These characteristics are in addition to those factors that have already made your company successful such as having a successful product line, sound market positioning, state of the art technology and a profitable customer base. These ten characteristics are more to do with the underlying management of the organisation.

See which of these ten criteria your company has? The less you have the more problematical will be your growth curve. 

 
1.    Do you carry out a formal planning process for business performance improvements?
   
2.    Do you invite participation from staff members in that planning process?
   
3.    What level of formal management and planning training do you and your board members have?
   
4.    Do you carry out regular formal strategic reviews involving all your team?
   
5.    Do your employees have a working knowledge of your strategy?
   
6.    What degree of financial understanding do your board members have?
   
7.    Do you generate prompt monthly management accounts that include cash flow, P & L and balance sheet?
   
8.    Do you set budgets that include KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) to monitor trends and provide performance feedback to staff?
   
9.    Are these budgets and KPIs reviewed, met and analysed in comparison with actual performance on a monthly basis?
   
10.    Do you use outside professional advisers or consultants to obtain an objective view and provide expert help on major changes?
