What is a business problem?
A business problem
- is anything that gets in the way of growth, improvement, innovation, change, and/or meeting goals
- is a distraction
- causes you to be busy instead of productive
Let's be frank.
The longer a business problem is allowed to continue, the more it costs to eliminate and/or repair the damage.
- Not knowing whether the money you spend on advertising is bringing you any new customers.
- Not knowing how many sales you might be missing by not creating email sales campaigns.
- Not knowing how much money is being lost by making decisions based on gut feelings instead of hard numbers.
- Not knowing how much time can be saved by using helpful software.
- Not knowing how to calculate EMV (Expected Monetary Value) or ROI (Return on Investment) of a new product or system.
- Not knowing how to calculate things that don't have a dollar sign on them- like the value of good customer service.
- Not knowing how to calculate when and how your balance sheet can go from red to black.
If you have a business problem, and you have not been able to address it on your own, you need to stop wasting time, and call in reinforcements. Try something different. Change. The cost (in both time and money) of solving the business problem is only a fraction of the cost of allowing the problem to continue. If you don't believe that, we can run the numbers on that too.
