Growing a Business



Your principal reasons for starting a business are growth and profitability. Fast growth, unless managed carefully can lead to failure as much as lack of growth. It is statistically proven that this is one of the top 10 reasons for failure of SMEs.


So long as growth is managed carefully, you will be able to increase profits and revenue and create a robust and scalable infrastructure with a reliable workforce that can grow with you.


Working with Signa can help ensure you grow in a managed and profitable way and avoid the issues that can arise.  Our advisors will help with the following:


  • We will work in conjunction with your management team to help implement the changes required to ensure profitable growth

  • Signa will provide your directors with an external independent review of current business to identify issues with practical solutions to resolve them

  • Communications within the workforce will be broadened to ensure everyone is aware of any changes and why they are taking place

  • Signa will assist the finance department to ensure timely delivery of management accounts and an even cash-flow

  • Put in place any new procedures to ease bottlenecks or delays
