We propose the Accompaniment of Artisans who want to learn how to manage their time, their goals using the management tools available on the market.
The first priority for craftsmen is most often the order, the customer, the cash flow, the invoices. Business strategy takes second place, administration is seen as a cost.
We support the strategic approach, the idea of organizing yourself, being more at peace with your organization rather than being overwhelmed, or over busy.
The objective of advising is not to do the strategic job in your place, nor to be omnipresent, but to make an assessment, with regular follow-up, to analyze jointly and objectively.
It’s about working on strategic goals and understanding your own decision-making system that makes it happen.
If the advisor is from outside the company, he can say the right words, while understanding the business manager.
The advisor must understand the company, the business manager and his need to grow, but also understand the challenges of financial constraints. He must also understand the way the craftsman and his company work.
The advisor can be involved in the development of strategy, in its implementation, in the establishment, definition and execution of projects.
But even if the advisor gets involved in the company’s issues, he will never be in the shoes of the business manager or his employees.
