Do you have invoicing and reporting systems that aren’t working properly? Or are you still relying on lots of complex Excel documents to build your quotes or for business reporting? Northpoint Business Consulting can help.
We provide a holistic approach, reviewing your business processes, project management and invoicing software and help with staffing needs. It is critical to have the right people, processes and information about your business if you want to increase profit margins.
If you know you need help but are not sure about the specifics, we can even help you work out what questions you should be asking for your business.
Systems and Processes
There is a belief in small business that life must be chaos. If you are not working on your business 24-7, then you are falling behind. We think that belief is worth challenging.
There are a lot of systems and programs out there that claim to get you organised, but it is a bit like going on a diet. They may work for a week or two, but often don’t address underlying causes and tendencies. We work closely with you to identify the areas where you need the most help and provide ongoing support in reaching your personal goals.
We’re not disputing that running a small business is hard work, but without balance it is not sustainable. We provide business advice to help you:
- Set goals and prioritize
- Cut down on the stress
- Feel more in control
- Manage client expectations
- Actually get through all your emails
Project Management Skills
Project Management is traditionally taught using the assumption that you have total control of the team and resources. But what if you don’t? We look at what happens when you take projects out of the text book and into real life.
Don’t let anyone tell you that Project Management has to be done one way or another. There are so many different tools and techniques that can be used to suit specific circumstances. We provide training in:
- Core principles across all types of project management
- PMBOK based project management
- Agile Project Management
- Change Management
- Dealing with high risk and complex projects
- Managing stakeholders and relationships
If you manage projects on a full or ad-hoc basis, or are looking to take on projects of increasing complexity you won’t want to miss out on this course. It is especially important for people in Matrix organisations. We will provide business advice to help with organisational structure, processes and politics affect every aspect of project management.
