Virtual Management Programme

A key challenge for most small businesses is to balance when to work ON the business and when to work IN the business. Making a profit, achieving a positive cash flow, generating business and motivating staff need to be juggled daily. In addition to this, many SME businesses can’t afford a full time manager in areas that require specific expertise, resulting in a negative impact on both EFFICIENCY and EFFECTIVENESS.

SME business in New Zealand

Did you know that around 92% of New Zealand businesses employ less than ten people, and that over 80% of small businesses fail in the first 3 years? There is an increasing demand for expert support, advice, tools and processes that are effective, affordable and practical. And it’s even more critical during challenging economic times.

Most companies need specialist expertise and skills in key areas to be successful in a competitive business environment. Unfortunately it’s not always affordable to employ a team of full time ‘experts’. Businesses are constantly faced with the dilemma of which expertise is most needed at a particular moment in time in order to achieve ongoing growth and reach their business goals.
