Our service provides plug-in teams not only to identify areas for change or growth but to give you the instant, on-the-ground support and horsepower to help make this happen.
The Firestarter Programme works in two phases:
Analysis & Goals
We start off by getting to know you and your business, with a kick-off meeting and in-depth analysis of how the business currently operates and where the problems lie. We will also determine the frustrations, goals and needs of the business leader.
Action Plan & Execution
Our team work closely with you to create a targeted plan of action with specific, measurable and attainable aims. We break down the steps needed to achieve them into clear, tangible actions and set up the processes and resources required to execute the plan as an extension of your team within days.
Proof of Concept
Throughout this phase, we will test and review a range of initiatives and campaigns that will generate some initial results for proof of concept, helping business leaders to assess and implement the most effective initiatives to deliver guaranteed progress.
At Firestarter, we not only give you the tools and strategies you need to implement change or growth initiatives, we also assist with the implementation of these strategies. By helping with the day-to-day running of the business, we create more time for the business leader to focus on implementing change.
The delivery is a sustained programme of activity, and the use of the Firestarter toolkit and methodology to drive momentum and generate further results for the business.
Individual programmes are different for every business we work with, but could include a sales improvement programme, new market development, product & marketing strategy or internal skills improvement plan to name a few.
Unlike many external consultants who identify a problem or solution, but do not support with implementation, Firestarter work with business leaders at all levels to help them identify, implement and test strategies of growth or change, while ensuring that the business can continue to function day-to-day.
“The Firestarter team have brought real rigour and methodology to our business development, which has had an excellent effect. Without Firestarter we would have been 24-36 months behind our business plan.”
Jane Findlay, Managing Director, Fira Landscape Architechts
