Maximise Opportunities

Maximise your business growth

Uncovering opportunities for growth & expansion

In motor racing, the phrase ‘target fixation’ describes the phenomenon where a driver focuses so much on an object they lose awareness of their surroundings, putting themselves and others in danger and increasing the likelihood of a crash.

In a business context, this is being so fixated on a goal, that you lose awareness of other important factors that could affect your business. This could be missed business opportunities or a new competitor taking market share from you.

Understanding your business environment

It’s important for any business to have a clear view of your landscape and how changes beyond your control may affect day-to-day operations. You may have heard of this as the macro and micro environmental factors – the internal and external forces that can impact your business:

  • Micro: these are the internal factors directly associated to your business, this could be new competitors or changes to suppliers and customers.
  • Macro: these are the uncontrollable external forces that can impact your business – both positively and negatively. They could be new technologies, political and economic factors or even cultural changes.

It doesn’t matter what size your business is – whether you’re a sole trader or a large organisation – changes to suppliers or legal frameworks can have significant knock-on effects to your revenue and growth opportunities.

As the saying goes “by failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail”. Being able to adapt to shifts in your environment could help you reduce risks to your business, or help you leverage opportunities ahead of the competition.
