Jumping a growth band is always challenging. For example, going from a £1M business to a £2.5M or the next jump to a £5M business. Such leaps of faith require careful planning, otherwise growing pains will hurt your business growth.

The Qinesis team is very experienced at making these jumps or scaling up, a term often used by investors.

We will carefully plan for your growth & help you to execute your scale up plans for profitable business growth.

The key services from Qinesis that will support Growing Businesses are:

  • Business Strategy – The Plan for Growth has to involve more than just your core idea. It includes your goals, your targets, your operations & more. The degree to which you researched & fine-tuned your plan will greatly affect your chances of eventual success. The more thorough you are, the better.
  • Operations, Process & Systems Review – Qinesis will make sure you are ready & prepared for growth. When your business starts to scale up, things can begin to creak. Weaknesses can be exposed, for example your IT system, processes, cash flow, team, supply chain etc. & you can’t always fix them once the scale up process has started. Qinesis apply careful thinking to how scaling up & growing your business will affect your company. We make sure you are ready & your operations, processes & systems are robust.
  • Market Research – Competitor analysis is critical for scale up. Qinesis will endeavour to learn from your competitors that have successfully grown. How did they do it & succeeded? For example, finding out how many staff they now have could give you a rough idea for recruitment. Where are they selling & how? Let’s understand their business model & learn lessons without the pain of getting it wrong.
  • Protect your Business Values – Things can change massively when your business is growing & scaling up. Many things will compete for your time & attention. Your Qinesis Coach will prepare you for this & help you to realise the importance of safeguarding your business values – which must not be allowed to suffer. The values that helped you to be successful up to this point must be protected.
  • Coaching to Build an Awesome Team – As you scale & grow your business, you will need new staff. Recruiting the right people at all levels is essential to scaling up, & attitude is as important as skills & experience. New recruits should realise the importance of your business values where consistency & quality are paramount. Qinesis will help you to create a culture & environment where people want to be & want to excel because they are engaged, motivated, recognised & rewarded.
  • Internal Marketing Communications of Your Strategy – Marketing is paramount for scale up. This includes internal & external marketing. Effective communications of your strategy & objectives will allow your team to understand where you are headed & how they can contribute to meeting them. This will inspire people to be ambitious, work hard & allow everyone to pull in the same direction. This can help your business to get better, stay current & grow.
  • Coaching & Consultancy – Accessing external expertise when required is very constructive for scale up, since recruiting might not always be the answer. Often it can be better to outsource tasks & functions to ensure the best outcomes. The Qinesis coach will also help you to understand when you need to delegate responsibility to free up your time so you don’t get caught up in day to day matters, when your time could be devoted to growing your business. We will help you to retain focus on the big picture for growth & help you to grow your strategic leadership skills, know-how & execution.
  • Company Brand Quality & Consistency – Qinesis never compromise on quality or consistency & we will not allow our clients to do the same since they both enable growth. There is no point growing your business if your products or customer service deteriorates, because customers will go elsewhere. Having the right processes, culture & staff is key to maintaining quality throughout. Qinesis will support you with coaching, consultancy, training & marketing know-how & best practice to not maintain but improve your Company Brand Quality & Consistency to support scale up.
  • Identify your Barriers to Growth – An important aspect of developing a strategy for growth involves thinking about possible barriers to scaling up. Qinesis will have honest & pragmatic conversations to understand the barriers to growth/scale up. There are several factors which could thwart your ambitions to grow around leadership, funding, cash flow, process & systems etc. Identifying the potential barriers can help you address your weaknesses & the threats they could pose.
  • Leadership Agility & Flexibility to Predict the Future – Setting up your business to grow with the best products or services, processes, systems & people, does not guarantee a smooth path to success. Challenges will arise on your journey which we need to spot well in advance with agility & flexibility before they damage your business. Risk alerts provides the key to spot that something is not right & quickly resolve ahead of the competition. Crisis happens; however, signs can be evident months in advance but are not recognised due to a lack of leadership agility & flexibility.
