Business Planning and Strategic Assistance
"If you don't know where you are going, any road will do." Said the wise, yet mischievous Cheshire cat from Alice in Wonderland. For your business, nothing has ever been truer. If you have no direction, no plan, no intent or control, then operating your business is like trying to guide a group of cats through an obstacle course; precarious, frustrating and ultimately you'll have little success!
Fortis One will assist you with change management practices acting like a traffic light that regulates the smooth flow of the changes that you require in your business.
Change management entails thoughtful planning and sensitive implementation, and above all, consultation with, and involvement of, the people affected by the changes. Organisational change will only occur if each individual changes.
Business Human Resource Advice
What does Human Resource Management mean to you and your business? Recruitment? Workplace Relations? Performance Appraisal? Professional Development? Whether you operate a small business or larger organisation, it is crucial to recognise the importance of supporting your people through effective HR management.
Business Budgets and Cashflows
Creating a budget may not sound like the most exciting thing in the world to do, but it is vital in keeping your financial house in order. A cash flow forecast (or cash budget) is the main financial forecast a business will prepare to measure how much cash is needed to operate the business and when it is needed. It adds the dimension of time to the annual sales and expenses forecasts so that you can predict the future cash needs of your business on a monthly basis and check whether you will be able to pay your bills. A cash flow forecast measures liquidity, the ability of the business to meet its commitments as they fall due.
