Course Correction

Navigating through turbulent waters is an inevitable part of any business journey. Whether you are an established industry leader or a budding entrepreneur, facing unexpected challenges and uncertainties is an inherent reality. Whether it’s declining profits, market shifts, internal inefficiencies, or other external factors, staying on course towards success can be a daunting task.

If your business is struggling Oldhams can help by providing valuable insights, strategies and expertise to guide your business back on the right track.

Here are some of the ways we do this:

The first thing we do is bring a fresh, unbiased perspective to your company’s challenges. We will objectively assess your business’s current state, identify problem areas, and analyze the root causes of the issues you’re facing. This objective assessment helps in understanding the overall health of the business, identifying areas of improvement, and creating an action plan for course correction.


Once we have analyzed your business’s situation, we will develop a comprehensive strategic plan to address the challenges. This plan will outline specific steps and initiatives that need to be taken to realign the business with its objectives. We will collaborate with the you to ensure that the course correction strategy aligns with the company’s vision, mission, and long-term goals.



External factors such as changes in the market, customer preferences, and emerging trends can significantly impact a business’s performance. We will conduct thorough market research and analysis to identify opportunities for growth and areas that require adjustment. By staying abreast of market trends, we can recommend necessary changes to your product or service offerings, pricing strategy, and target audience.



Financial mismanagement is one of the most common reasons businesses find themselves in need of course correction. With a strong background in accounting Oldhams are experts in Financial Management and can help review your financial statements, identify areas of inefficiency, and develop a plan to optimize your company’s financial resources. This may involve implementing cost-cutting measures, improving cash flow management, or revising the budget to ensure financial stability.



In some cases, businesses may need to reevaluate their organizational structure and processes to improve efficiency and communication. We can analyze your company’s internal operations, identify bottlenecks, and suggest restructuring strategies. This might involve redefining roles, introducing cross-functional teams, or enhancing communication channels to foster collaboration.



Course correction often involves implementing significant changes within the organization, and this can be met with resistance from employees. Having an external consultant managing and developing a change management plan can be a preferable approach as they provide a completely objective approach. At Oldhams we have helped many businesses implement successful change management plans walking employees through the reasons for the changes ensuring a smooth transition and optimal emplee buy-in. Effective change management can boost employee morale, increase productivity, and minimize disruptions during the course correction process.



To gauge the success of the course correction efforts, we will help establish performance metrics and key performance indicators (KPIs). These metrics will be used to track progress and measure the impact of the changes implemented. Regular monitoring allows for adjustments to the course correction plan if necessary, ensuring the business stays on track towards its goals.

Remember, acknowledging the need for course correction and seeking expert help is a sign of a proactive and resilient business.

If your business is struggling now is the time to get help - before its too late. Oldhams can guide you through challenging times and help you on the road to a sustainable future.
