No business has nailed every part of their business automation; everyone is at different stages for different things. No matter where you are, as long as you want to head in the same direction, we would love to work with you. At stage 1 your growth is risky, unpredictable and very unlikely to scale. As you move along your growth journey you will start to make better decisions based on the analysis of more data. Your growth will be more predictable, investing in growth will be less risky and your business will be worth more. Over time you can find more and more decisions which can be automated. This will keep increasing predictability and the speed at which you can grow.
Manual decisions based on little or no data
Little or no formalised systems or processes. Little to no data on which to make a decision. Visibility of what is going on in your business, good or bad, is limited.
Manual decisions based on manual data
Different systems, produce different reports. Information is manually collated and interpreted before decisions can be made. Reports are snapshots in time so always out of date.
Manual decisions based on automated data
Multiple systems feed data into dashboards to give instant visibility into what is happening in the business. Dashboards are always up to date so informed decisions can be made at any time.
Automated decisions based on automated data
Dashboards help you monitor your business but the decisions are made by algorithms which will learn. Algorithms analyse more data than a human could ever understand, enabling more predictable business growth decisions.

Insights help to continually increase the predictability of you achieving your goal within your desired timeframe and budget. Systemising your processes to continually collect more insights from customers, competitors and your own company will create shorter feedback loops to validate your goal and strategy whilst continually optimising your execution. Any issues with your goal, timeframe, budget, strategy or execution plan can be adjusted to prevent the consequences of failure.
Which strategy you need to take to achieve your goals is driven by the insights. There are many different strategies to achieve your goal so you need to choose the right one. A strategy with no insight is just a hunch. You should listen to your instincts but if you want predictable, low-risk growth you need to validate your hunch with insights.
Execution is when you take action on your strategy. You should start off with a focused prioritised list of tasks but be prepared to be flexible. The lowest risk and most predictable route to growth
