What is a Business Review?
Avid Partners business review service has successfully supported business owners and managers in several different sectors in returning their business to increased sales, profitability and improved personal wealth. The objective is to use some structured time away from the flow of business activity to assess how the business should move forward. The process is designed to enable a clear consensus on what needs to be done, based on a thorough analysis of the current position and available options for developing the business. Clients normally request Avid Partners assist them in carrying out such a review because it’s hard to do it by yourself. Bringing in an experienced outsider can challenge you to think deeply about each stage of this process and come up with much more valid conclusions.
In depth analysis of the business will look at the following areas relating to the business:
- Industry, market sector, trends and key success factors
- Competitor performance, advantages and differentiators
- Company products, services, distribution and structure
- Sales results, market share and client profitability
- Marketing strategy performance, mix and budget
- Organisational resources and competences
- People, training and investment

What is involved in a Business Review?
1. Where Are We Now?
This stage involves analysing the company’s strengths and weaknesses, how well it addresses the needs of buyers and markets, and how it compares with its competitors. An assessment of operational effectiveness will be done, that looks at people, processes, and organisational responsibilities. The purpose is to establish a solid and agreed start point for the remainder of the project. This stage often highlights differences of opinion between people within the company, and builds consensus about what needs to be done, and why.
2. Where Could We Get To?
In the second stage, the strategic review options are identified. Research and analysis includes the sizing, profiling and segmentation of markets, and considering the options available for development of products and services through options such as organic growth and strategic partnerships.
3. Where Should We Get To?
Based on the analysis in the first two stages, a selection of the appropriate objectives can be made from the strategic review options that are available. This includes the selection and prioritisation of the initiatives that will be required. Deeper research into the chosen market opportunities is often required in order to complete this stage effectively.
4. How Do We Get There?
In the final stage, an operational plan is developed, based on the differentiated value proposition that has been developed during the first three stages. The offering to each market or market segment is defined. The requirements for the development of the company’s people, processes and organisation are defined. Targets are established in this stage, along with the definition of the metrics that will be used to evaluate success.

Having got to know the company through the BNI we decided it was time to change accountant. What impressed me about Avid Partners was their professionalism. Their attention to detail was second to none and as an added bonus they are a sounding board to all of my questions. Avid also potted some irregularities in my accounts from the previous few years and saved me substantial money on the years tax bill. Avid Partners deliver a first class service which is everything you could want from an accountant and I am happy to give this endorsement.
