Discover the Chance of Successful Entrepreneurship through a Convenient Online Baseline Assessment

For most small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), governance is something far away. In other words, measures of good governance are not yet part of daily practice. Particularly explosive growth and/or external demands, for example from an external financier, have changed this to date. Especially to make the likelihood and impact of risks manageable. Oddly enough, because fundamentally every entrepreneur wants to be successful and certainly not fail. Thus, corporate governance aimed at SMEs is actually relevant for every entrepreneur: it is about having control over realizing entrepreneurial ambition. And there's quite a lot involved. Therefore, we will be paying ample attention to this unexplored area in the world of the entrepreneur in the coming period.

Today, Route ICR shares the ninth article from the series 'How to practically implement SME governance'.

Amsterdam, November 3, 2021 - Entrepreneurship is simple. But the hardest thing is to keep entrepreneurship simple. But why is that? Let's discuss this in the coming period. We will also explore how to solve this problem. Today, Route ICR shares the ninth article in the series 'How to practically implement SME governance'.

Starting entrepreneurs have the opportunity to choose the right approach from the very beginning. For entrepreneurs who have been in business for a while, it's a different story. They have developed their own working methods and rely on them every day. For this group, understanding where they stand is the starting point for improvement. They perform the necessary ICR baseline assessment online. It is an investment in and the starting point of successful entrepreneurship.

How solid is the foundation under your business's success?

With the comprehensive ICR baseline assessment, you map out the current situation of your business based on your ready knowledge. This includes understanding the strong points of your business operations and, more importantly, the areas for improvement. Conducting the baseline assessment takes about an hour, and possibly longer if your ready knowledge is lacking. Overall, it's a manageable investment in your business's success. Through the assessment, your business's grades for the 33 ICR objectives and the 5 ICR growth circles are summarized on one A4 sheet. This also immediately reveals your business's ICR, showing how solid the foundation under your business's success is and what you need to work on to strengthen it. This increases the chance of successful entrepreneurship.

Perform the ICR Baseline Assessment Online and Independently

You can perform the baseline assessment independently or with the help of a business coach. From the user-friendly ICR dashboard, you assign the most appropriate grade for how your organization meets each objective. Make sure to be critical and thus give as honest grades as possible. Only then will you see where the potential for improvement lies. The baseline assessment is, therefore, the first step in your organization's improvement process. The ICR serves as your growth compass. The better your ICR, the greater the chance of successful entrepreneurship, and thus the greater the chance of realizing your entrepreneurial ambition. This is what makes the implementation of SME governance in practice so valuable!

Entrepreneurs take risks and are incredibly important for our economy. Unfortunately, a good balance between work and private life is often lacking. It is precisely this that drives Paul Joore to have a positive impact on the lives of entrepreneurs and contribute to their success. Paul is the ambitious founder of the online Route ICR platform for successful entrepreneurship. He is also the author of the entrepreneurship book ‘Succesvol groeien doe je zo!’ (Successful Growth, How to Do It!). "I believe in setting seemingly unattainable goals. Challenging oneself, innovating, and constantly improving. Supported by a well-structured organization." Paul has tens of thousands of flight hours in the business world, with a background as an entrepreneur, coach, interim manager, and former chartered accountant. Always focusing on realizing challenging goals as effectively and efficiently as possible: in other words, being successful through being inControl, in the entire process from true ambition to result. This only works by thinking, planning, and acting from a goal-oriented structure. In the SME sector, there was a lack of knowledge and experience in this area, and well-thought-out solutions were not available. Therefore, Paul decided to create this himself. In many SME businesses, the 'madness of the day' reigns. As a result, entrepreneurs are not inControl when it comes to achieving goals, let alone challenging ones. Therefore, they also do not realize their true ambition. Worse, for many, this ambition is not even crystal clear. And how can you work towards a goal without having a real one? Logically, there can also be no balance between work and private life. And no balance means no rest. So, the Route ICR web app helps entrepreneurs and teams to be inControl in the entire process from ambition to result. With the ICR "InControlRating" of your business as a growth compass.
