Work out if your business is ready to grow

Introduction

It is important to regularly review your business. The market you operate in is continually moving, with new customer requirements and changing competition.

Look at all aspects of your business and your market. Are you doing things the right way? Have you got the right products and services? How happy are your customers? What's the competition up to? Are your suppliers up to scratch? How healthy is your financial performance?

Internally, there are ways you can improve your systems with better IT and improved working practices. For example, improving energy efficiency and reducing waste will cut your costs.

A thorough business review will identify problems but will also give you ideas for improving your business performance.

This guide includes videos to help you assess readiness and plan for business growth.
