An integrated solution for business owners who want to systemise and scale their business
Easier to run. Easier to grow. More profitable. Less reliant on you.
The Scaleup Formula© is a set of techniques to reduce your business' reliance upon you.
Applying these techniques develops your business so that employees take on more responsibility and are more productive. It frees up your time and reduces your stress because you no longer have to make every decision and sort out every problem. It stops you becoming the bottleneck that constrains business growth.
It is an integrated solution: At its centre is highly-focused weekly coaching that helps you understand and make these changes and stay motivated and committed. This is supported by a manual or roadmap that sets out the process you are following step by step. Implementation is made quicker and easier by a cloud-based system that automates much of the process legwork. Finally, a suite of tools, guidance, checklists and templates can be adapted to your business and reduce further the admin side of the changes.
The Workshop Programme is at the heart of The Scaleup Formula©.
Even the most capable and driven of business owners need support and advice from time to time. Research from BIS and Pulse amongst others shows that business coaching generally has a significant positive impact on business performance. The Workshop Programme gives you cost-effective (and time-effective) access to business coaching . Every week you spend a highly-focused hour working with your mentor and other business owners on improving your business.
The workshops explain how to apply each step of The Scaleup Formula© to your business as well as providing answers to your questions and helping you overcome problems. The support and encouragement of other business owners is an important element of this, whilst solving problems with your peers builds your own business knowledge and confidence.
The Roadmap is the user manual for The Scaleup Formula©.
The Roadmap sets out step by step how to systemise your business and make it scalable. Filled with examples, screenshots and practical advice it makes changing your business easy. From how to identify and describe your main processes to assessing and developing employees, from choosing your key perforrmance indicators to running performance reviews, every aspect of making your business scalable is covered.
The manual explains how to apply each step of The Scaleup Formula© to your business as well as providing an invaluable reference. The Workshop Programme is structured around the manual and the System is designed around it.
The System is a cloud-based application for implementing The Scaleup Formula©.
The System is designed to support each step of the methodology and makes it quicker and simpler to implement the changes in your business. Functionality is provided to identify and define processes, asses your employees and identify their development needs, delegate, create KPIs, and plan and carry out reviews. A dashboard lets you monitor progress and focus your efforts.
The system includes a database of pre-defined standard processes that you can install and customise to match your business, including all the related KPIs, checklists and document templates.
The Scaleup Formula© includes tools, templates, guidelines and checklists that you can apply in your business to systemise it and make it scalable.
These tools are emailed to you each week as each part of The Scaleup Formula© is introduced. Their use is also explained during the Workshops. Each tool supplements the Manual and System. For instance, the Successful Delegation Checklist is used to make sure that you are delegating well but also helps you to understand what makes delegation succeed or fail and why.
The tools are customisable and brandable so that you can adapt them to your business.
