FAQ

In what order should I complete the managerial strategies?

The managerial strategies have been designed, as far as possible, to be independent of each other. However, in reality they are interlinked and rely on each other.

The survey has been designed to help give direction as to the order of completion. This is intended as a guideline and ultimately it is your decision as to what to tackle first. However, you can complete the managerial strategies in any order.

We would strongly recommend that you start with the “Strategy” module as all other managerial strategies take direction from your strategy.

Can you guarantee success if I follow the recommend actions?

The topics covered are based on a mix of the developer’s experience and knowledge contained in articles and books. The managerial strategies and critical performance areas defined in the tool are generic in nature catering for as wide an audience as possible. Not all of these will be applicable to your business.

The tool has been designed to be a guide to help you to improve your business performance. It is up to you to determine what needs to be done and how you are going to do it.

Accordingly, it is impossible to provide any guarantees that you will be able to successfully improve your business based on the information provided.

Why “Simplify”?

We have long held the view that the complexity of solutions leads to failure in implementation. The simplicity of concept is far more likely to be successful in application. We thus have a business ideology to simplify!

However, simplifying is often not easy – you really need to know what you are doing before you can simplify things!

We want to help you succeed in your business venture and believe that “simplify” is going to help you in going forward.

Why “TOM”?

TOM stands for Target Operating Model. You deliver your strategy through your operating model. Your target operating model is what you are striving towards to implement your strategy.

Whilst a strategy is important, your TOM is vital in ensuring the success of its implementation.

TOM in our name signifies the business operations you are trying to improve upon.
