Six-Week Business Boost
Go Beyond LLC offers a 6-week long series of workshops to boost a company’s efforts to get to the next level. After assessing the present situation of the company, Go Beyond facilitates these workshops on two tracks: 1) personal/financial (for owner(s) and families) and/or 2) business (for owners and senior management team). The focus is on understanding the factors that drive value and build wealth. This comprehensive deep dive sets the stage for 90-day cycles of relentless execution that bring the business closer to best-in-class, improving sales and cash flow, and doubling or tripling the market value of your business.
Week 1 Education
Different teams are involved in the personal/financial and business tracks; however, both tracks should include key people in the owner’s life and business. The deliverable of this workshop is that both teams understand the facts of the current situation; strengths, weaknesses, and themes; the factors that drive the value of a business, and the Value Acceleration Methodology that we will follow going forward.
Week 2 Strategic Framework
If not previously conducted, this workshop will include envisioning, validating or adjusting core values, purpose, opportunities and risks. Owners will set a 10-year goal, and develop 3-5 year quantifiable targets (for business: value, revenue, profit, market share; for personal/financial: net worth, annual income, needs vs wants) and the two areas they think they can dominate. Define 3-5 year capabilities that will enable reaching 3-5 year targets.
Week 3 Next 12 Months and Next Quarter
Define the one-year SMART goals (revenue, profit, net worth, personal income, etc). Define no more than 5 key initiatives (priorities) over the next 12 months. Define the next quarter quantified goals and no more than 5 priority actions to be completed in the next 90 days. These priority actions must be tied to key weaknesses that, if addressed, will have a significant positive impact on the business or owner’s personal situation. Define a few key metrics for both one year and quarterly goals to measure progress. Assign a champion to each priority. Assign the work to be prepared for the Alignment workshop.
Week 4 Alignment
Each champion describes their action/project using the Opportunity Assessment format, covering: the history of the issue or problem to be solved and why it is important, possible courses of action, recommendation course of action, cost-benefit analysis, 90-day timeline and team structure, 3-5 milestones, description of the deliverable, define and commit resource requirements, define who is accountable for each task in the plan, name an accountability buddy.
Week 5 Metrics & Feedback System
This workshop develops a handful of key performance metrics that will provide weekly, monthly, and quarterly feedback. Teams will be continuously aligned to these metrics. Design dashboards for the personal/financial track and business track.
Week 6 Rhythm
This workshop defines the meeting and workshop rhythm to be used by the personal/financial and business core teams. For the first 90-day cycle and moving forward. Set quarterly Renewal Workshop dates. Assign ownership of the calendar. Recommended rhythm:
Mid-month: 1 to 1 check-in workshop (owner and champions)
Monthly: Accountability Workshop (core team and champions)
Quarterly: Renewal Workshop (champions report results, select next 5 actions from the Prioritized Action Plan, assign champions to each new action, plan the next 90-day cycle)
