What business barriers do you experience? Here's what others find.
We've been running a survey into what holds companies back from performing as well as they would like so I thought you might like to know what other people like ourselves struggle with and what areas they feel they have more under control
We've now got over 100 responses to this so it's worth sharing the headlines with you.
We've taken a balanced scorecard approach to this so in effect we've asked a headline Question around the major subject areas and then drilled down into each one.
Here are the headline findings. People were asked about how well they handled a range of issues. The scores they were asked to use were
1. I really struggle with this
2. It really needs improving
3. It's ok but needs some work
4. I'm really on top of this
As you can see they all scored between 2 and 3 - the lower the score the worse the performance
In summary they feel most comfortable about their ability to cope with Vision and staff motivation issues and least optimistic about their ability to manage their cash and to acquire and retain new customers (selling to you and me)
If you would like some more details of the findings by each balanced scorecard area, then please request a download of the headline findings via this link.
Hope you find it useful
