Sustainable business starts with more focus and less waste

Sustainable business starts with more focus and less waste

When it comes to sustainable business, the conversation often revolves around its explicit manifestations - self-sufficient buildings, electric vehicles, use of eco-friendly materials, etc. However, a deeper exploration may reveal even more significant opportunities. Many companies suffer from disrupted innovative processes due to a lack of time, energy, and finances. And it's precisely through innovation that we can all gain substantially.

Conscious Business Practices

Sustainable business fundamentally involves being conscious of the planet and its inhabitants. This awareness should be more prevalent in entrepreneurship, specifically in company management. Too few entrepreneurs realize the benefits of a professional organizational approach, which can prevent mistakes. And the beauty of avoiding mistakes is that there's no need to fix them. This leaves more time for innovation.

The waste of time, energy, and money is mainly due to a lack of focus. Entrepreneurs often struggle with how to best structure their organization. This isn't surprising, as up to now, SMEs have had to figure it out on their own. This contrasts with large corporations that have been employing graduates and experienced specialists for years to achieve top performance.

Knowledge and Skills

While large corporations address the root cause, SME entrepreneurs tend to work harder when problems arise. Studies by nlgroeit (conducted by Erasmus and McKinsey) and the Chamber of Commerce show that many SMEs lack the necessary knowledge and management skills. This unfortunately hinders innovation and growth.

If existing entities (like the SME home advisor) don't take action, this situation will never change. So, on this Entrepreneur's Day, the question is whether and how we can break this deadlock. In other words, who will provide a professional, accessible, and affordable solution for SMEs?

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.
