What business barriers do you experience? Here's what others find.

What is it that really holds your business back? 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 controlWe'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 were1.I really struggle with this2.It really needs improving3.It's ok but needs some work4.I'm really on top of thisAs 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 usefulAlanbtw - what's your biggest barrier to getting the growth you want in your businessCopyright Alan Rae - 2012Business Research and Development // Social Media for Real Businesses Organic Vegetables On-Line // Gardening Tools and Tips on-line
