ENTREPRENEURIAL
RESOURCES

Whilst we invite and accept clients from all walks of life to our body or services, we specialise in planning and supporting entrepreneurs within any industry sector. Whether these entrepreneurs are start ups looking to launch a new business idea OR are a mature business, we provide tailored services to meet their needs. Our entrepreneurial resources (services) include automated entitlement to all the Personal Financial planning and Product administration services as part of the package. This highlights our philosophy that financial and business planning must be done holistically in order for it to be effective.

These entrepreneurial services include the following:-

Consulting

In respect of problem solving. We co-design solutions with our entrepreneurs ensuring 100% adoption of solutions employed. This can involve single or multiple disciplines within the business (large or micro) such as:-

Leadership

A leader who possesses excellent interpersonal skills knows how these principles not only influence others but also himself. He, therefore, knows that his own vision regarding work, a certain problem or the world, is just as coloured as someone else’s.

He is aware of the fact that people’s behaviour is to a large extent determined by their values and norms. He also knows that people have needs and that they use their energy primarily to satisfy these needs or to reach their targets. Thus, a leader with highly developed interpersonal skills knows how to integrate individual targets with organisational targets.

Decision making

The way people behave often results from certain decisions they have made. As a consequence, a great deal of scientific studies on human behaviour was focused on how decisions were made. An understanding of how human beings take decisions reveals insight into the behaviour of individuals and groups.

This, of course, applies also to Entrepreneurs since one of their main tasks involves taking decisions. Every manager has to face the problems he and his staff members are confronted with. This implies that decisions need to be made.

Problem
Solving

Problem-solving is a process—an ongoing activity in which we take what we know to discover and explore what we don’t know. It involves overcoming obstacles by generating solutions (practical and theoretical), testing these alternatives and ultimately arriving at satisfactory solutions.

Strategy, business plans, business continuity and succession.

Strategic management is a continuous process of strategic analysis, strategy creation, implementation and monitoring, used by organizations with the purpose to achieve and maintain a competitive advantage.

Strategic management is a process by which managers choose a set of actions that will allow their organisation to attain one or more of its long-term goals and achieve superior performance. In real terms, developing a compelling value proposition and building the business on a solid platform ensuring good corporate governance, succession and continuity is essential.

This also includes comprehensive Business plans and development of a viable and practical value proposition.

Finance, cash flows
and leverage

Financial Management means planning, organising, directing and controlling the financial activities such as procurement and utilisation of funds of the organisation.

It means applying general management principles to financial resources of the organisation. The biggest challenge in business today is cash flow and how to combat the negative influences it can impose on a business. Solving this problem is a priority for most businesses.

Cash flow is NEVER the problem but it is the BIGGEST symptom of an ill business.

Marketing and sales

Marketing is not about providing products or services – it is essentially about providing changing benefits to the changing needs and demands of the customer. Whether our clients need training in this area or hands on work, we offer mentorship programs as well as the ability for our clients to outsource marketing communication efforts to us.

Human Resource Incentives,
management and administration

Human Resource Management is the function within an organisation that focuses on recruitment of, management of and providing direction for the people who work in the organisation.

Managing one’s HR is complex and made more difficult as it does not in itself generate income or production. However, by building quality and sustainable incentive programs or simply investing in employee development can influence turnover, attitude and behaviour

Information System
needs and management

Information technology management (IT management) is the process whereby all resources related to information technology are managed according to an organisation’s priorities and needs. This includes tangible resources like networking hardware, computers and people, as well as intangible resources like software and data.

The central aim of IT management is to generate value through the use of technology. To achieve this, business strategies and technology must be aligned. We offer a comprehensive IT and communications solution to our clients.

A single collaborative ICT solution with instant and effective outcomes.

Operations, policies, processes and procedures

Operations management is chiefly concerned with planning, organising and supervising in the contexts of production, manufacturing or the provision of services. As such, it is delivery-focused, ensuring that an organisation successfully turns inputs to outputs in an efficient manner.

The inputs themselves could represent anything from materials, equipment and technology to human resources such as staff or workers. Examples of the types of duties or specialist positions this encompasses are procurement (acquiring goods or services from external sources), managing relations with those involved in processes, and improving a company’s sustainability with regard to its use of resources.

Black Economic Empowerment
practical strategies

Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) aims to ensure that the economy is structured and transformed to enable the meaningful participation of the majority of its citizens and to further create capacity within the broader economic landscape at all levels through skills development, employment equity, socio economic development, preferential procurement, enterprise development, especially small and medium enterprises, promoting the entry of black entrepreneurs into the mainstream of economic activity, and the advancement of co-operatives.

Entrepreneurial Development

Using our Entrepreneurial Development Program (the EDP) in consultation with business management, employees (from Directors to supervisors) are identified who will benefit from practical real time training and development within their own unique environments. The EDP follows formal guidelines that enable each participant to experience practical project related development through a formally designed mentorship program over 12 to 24 months. This “Action based” EDP connects participants with real events within the organisation and through real time projects, problems are identified and solutions are generated, implemented, monitored and evaluated.
The EDP is designed n an individual level meaning that it can be delivered at an undergraduate or post graduate level depending on the experience, needs and requirements of the organisation and individual participants.
These are offered and delivered in two basic formats designed to meet each participant’s needs:-
