Do you dream of the day when you can hand over the day-to-day operations of your business to someone else? If the stereotypes are correct, most entrepreneurs love starting companies but hate managing the details of business operations.
For start-ups, homebased business or small businesses with just a handful of employees, the prospect of hiring a full-time COO might seem out of reach-both financially and practically.
Hiring a COO makes sense for some entrepreneurs but is a waste of money for others. Before you decide to proceed, does it make more sense to hire an Interim COO?

The first step is to define your problem or goal that necessitates the analysis. A clear definition of what issue the strategic analysis should answer will help guide your effort toward success.
Step two is to gather the information needed to assess the strengths and weaknesses of your firm regarding the issue or problem at hand. we will conduct observational studies or one-on-one interviews, and/or assemble qualified teams to brainstorm and report on these areas.
A strategic analysis for a business is one of the most basic and useful tools for strategic business planning.
Whether it's sport or business, you have to know how you rate compared with your peers, to know where you need to improve relative to them. If you want to be "best-in-breed" or just to "do better" you need a baseline to review the effectiveness of competitors.
Potential customers will often directly compare what a competing brand has to offer. Benchmarking "puts you in the customers shoes" and gives you insight on where you need to improve. It can also give you inspiration to try new approaches.
Benchmarking is vital, but it can also be useful to review more regularly to see how competitors' are changing. It's also an essential part of developing a marketing strategy to grow your reach where you need to look beyond your website at all aspects of online communications effectiveness, especially for SEO, content and social media benchmarking.
Step three is to identify and define what the potential opportunities and threats may be within the scope of the problem. It is usually best to assemble a team composed of individuals within the firm with relevant knowledge regarding the departments and competitive environments that will be key to managing the issue and implementing the solution.
Finally review the results of your analysis. We chart your findings on the company's strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. We can show you how to use the information derived from the analysis to define how to best use your strengths, remedy your weaknesses, optimize any predicted opportunities, and counter any perceived threats.
