I’m Managing Director of an Audio-Media company which provides sound facilities for all the major Commercial Radio Broadcasters and Advertising Agencies throughout the UK.
I enlisted Ian’s help in preparing a business plan for a proposed Management Buy-Out (MBO), using the ‘Journey Making’ strategic planning process.
I was very impressed with the way in which he used this process to capture and structure information, which helped me to organise my thoughts in such a way that I was able to see the issues more clearly and was, therefore, able to make better, more informed decisions about my business.
During this process, Ian was able to help me to gain a clear understanding of where I wanted the business to be over the next few years and to highlight the capability that we had that would help us to get there. He also helped me to identify the major issues facing the business and was able to explain what impact they would have as we grew the business. This helped us to focus on the important issues and to create action plans to resolve them.
This process enabled us to look at better ways of growing the business and highlighted the issues that would have to be overcome. With Ian’s help, we have created a very robust business plan which will be a great reference point as the business moves forward
I have no hesitation in recommending Ian Brown and the Journey Making process, to anyone involved in business management who want to create a clear strategic plan for their business.
