Don't Treat a Symptom, Diagnose the Problem
Your business isn't generating the Cash, Profits, and Revenues (CPR) you want and need. That's a problem? No that is a symptom of the real problem(s).
When your business isn't generating the results you want, then a lack of CPR indicates something is wrong with one or more systems in your business. What is wrong? What isn't working at optimum? To know you have to run a diagnostic.
Too many businesses waste time and money on things that won't change their results. You wouldn't expect a mechanic to paint your car to fix an engine noise. So why do you think cosmetic changes to your business systems will fix what's wrong with your business?
Time for New (Business) Model
Every business evolves. Sometimes that evolution leads to a new vital version of the firm. Other times it leads to extinction!
Growth or extinction depends upon your willingness to monitor and evaluate what your business is doing and the results it is generating. Your business, like the car you drive, requires maintenance. Over time it may need a major overhaul, a new engine (sales) or transmission (operations). In rare instances, you may need to get a new business, a new way of doing business that is. You have to trade in the old (business) model for a new, updated version with different features and systems.
Just as the engine powers your car, your sales engine powers your business. Your sales process is the source of power for your business. Where does your sales engine get its power? The company's fuel (cash) and air (prospects)!
To understand what is and isn't working in your sales process, you have to examine and diagnose your sales engine. How is your business converting the fuel and getting air into the sales engine? Do you have enough fuel, the right fuel, and are the fuel lines clear? When the fuel flows to the engine is there sufficient air coming in that allows the spark to get the engine working efficiently?
Is your business running on all cylinders?
