Frequently Asked Questions
Business analysis entails analyzing the finances, systems, controls and operations of the business.
The purpose of business impact analysis is to identify inefficiencies and blockages that are limiting the growth potential and profitability of a business.
Cost structuring includes the review of the current structure of a business to determine if it is the most appropriate for the business. E.g. If a business is currently leasing an asset that is key to the sales of the business, how would the profits and cash flows change if the business were to buy the asset instead? Would the profits and cash flows increase or decrease over the short, medium and long term.
Are the employees of the business spending an unnecessary amount of time on manual interventions that can be automated? If these processes are automated, that allows those employees to work on more high-level tasks that bring in more revenue, or it could result in not needing to employ as many people as the business grows.
As an entrepreneur, you focus on growing the business as well as the day-to-day operations. You have a skill that very few people have. As your business grows, inefficiencies and blockages that could limit the growth and profitability of your business are naturally created.
