Directing and managing any organisation for any business owner is a demanding task requiring meticulous attention to detail. Even the most experienced owners frequently warn of the perils of becoming absorbed by the day to day challenges of running the business. One consequence can be that dealing with these day to day issues dominates at the cost of a loss of focus on long term strategy.
The option of appointing an external expert to provide an assessment of the company's strategy is a major step for a business owner to "work on the business rather than in the business". The attraction of this approach is that not only does it free company staff to address their full-time challenges but, by virtue of their independence, an external advisor can bring fresh insights and ask the difficult questions and challenge existing thinking. The Lexington team brings a wealth of experience gleaned from working across different sectors and with businesses at all stages of their evolution.
