If you think you’re not spending enough time ‘on’ your business, this is actually really good news because you recognise this as a problem. All too often, business owners spend a lifetime on the treadmill never realising there’s an easier route. So, if you’re on this page, you’re over the first hurdle and the future is bright.

The next challenge is to identify what needs to happen in your business to give you more time. We believe that there are 7 pillars in every business that are critical to success and while each pillar is weighted differently according to the nature of your business, every one of them needs consideration. The pillars – Strategy & Leadership, Marketing, Sales, Team, Innovation & Technology, Operations, Finance & Legal – all have a role to play in your business.

At Wilson Partners, we work alongside business leaders to look at each of these areas in granular detail. Equipped with vast commercial knowledge, we assess how the 7 pillars stack up in your business. Working to this process helps us identify potential conflicts, weaknesses and opportunities within businesses all helping to drive strategic thinking and get the business plan on track.
