Many companies want to grow, but because they are not in control, they fail to do so - Part 1 of 2

Lack of or limited overview & insight leads to lack of control

In an economy that is running at full speed, growing becomes a lot easier than when facing headwinds. But this doesn't mean that companies are automatically successful in their growth process. Growing bigger also means that different demands are placed on the organization of your company. If you do too little with this, wanting to grow can have a very bitter taste. In two parts, we'll focus on how to prevent this, starting with part 1 today.

Why do we take all safety measures so carefully before we go parachuting? Right! To reduce the risks of accidents and increase the chances of a successful landing. But why then are there entrepreneurs who skip these basics when it comes to achieving their goals? Here too, in the worst case, you could deal a death blow to your business. But being in control as an entrepreneur is still in its infancy.

An important part of the basics is always having an overview and insight. Overview in the sense of knowing where you stand and insight in terms of delivered performance and the expected development of performance. Maintaining an overview is not easy when it's all hands on deck every day of the week. But how can you determine if you're still on course to achieve your goals without an overview? For example, a (sudden) shortage of working capital often occurs and that hurts in every way!

Professional Organization

By making your organization more professional, you maintain an overview and always have insight into the crucial matters that determine the success of your company. This way, you can spot potential obstacles early on and thus steer in time to prevent adverse effects, such as higher costs and/or lower revenue. The bonus is that this also increases the chance of being a financially healthy company, which in turn stimulates the chance of successful growth.

This means that, no matter how big or small your company is, you always need a professional organization to grow successfully. But how do you go about it and where do you start? After all, as an entrepreneur, you can't know everything. You would expect that entrepreneurs would have found a structural solution to this long ago. Nothing could be further from the truth, but fortunately, there is good news!

Because professionalizing is fundamentally about basic matters...

That's it for part 1. Part 2 will soon appear on our website.

Over de schrijver
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. Very clear and handy to know through one number how your business is and will be doing. So you know whether you will achieve your goals and be successful from this starting point. And if the score is disappointing, you also know what to work on to improve. This way, you gradually work towards a better balance in your life, feel good about yourself, and have a positive mindset! Are you curious? You too can experience the Route ICR web app for 14 days free of charge, without obligations!
