workshop : ReTHINK Your Business
Description The three-hour ReTHINK Your Business workshop is based
The three-hour ReTHINK Your Business workshop is based on three high impact tools for transformation and growth. After learning to use the tools, you will take away a practical strategy for improvement based on a realistic assessment of your business and its potential. In the workshop you will learn how to:
- ReTHINK the value of key products (or services) and key customers
- ReTHINK the strengths and opportunities of your business
- ReTHINK and plan next steps towards your preferred future
You will Define your business in a nutshell, working ‘on’ it as well as ‘in’ it, and Build a clear plan for change, growth or innovation, captured on one page.
“If you want to step outside your business, break it down into segments, conduct some in-depth analysis, remove the clutter and put it back together again, Edgeware training will help you to do this in a methodical, sensitive and caring way.” Ron Murray
The ReTHINK Your Business workshop is built on these powerful tools:
- Product/Market Segmentation. Identifying key products (or services) and key customers, and understanding what connection they have with each other.
- A creative analysis. Looking at strengths and weaknesses from a constructive and forward look perspective.
- Dynamic Planning. Using an assessment of key business strengths and challenges as the basis of an action plan, a ‘To Do’ list capturing key strategies for key outcomes, set out in order of importance.
The ReTHINK tools are designed for immediate application in the business. Once learned, they can be used quickly and efficiently for large or small decisions about the business in general, or about particular projects or goals (like trying out a new product or service, exploring a new market, building a new business case or tweaking the old one). The workshop also creates the unique opportunity to exchange experiences and information with fellow participants.
