We work with businesses at every stage of their journey!

At BizNeedz, we understand that every business is unique and faces its own unique challenges which will inevitably change over the lifetime of the business. While the challenges change, the underlining principles of good business management will not. So whether you’re still developing your business idea or you have been in business for decades and are facing stagnating or even declining growth, the basic fundamental principles and  functions of business will remain the same. These are – Sales and Marketing, Financial Management, People and Process. What might change, depending on which phase of its lifecycle your business is in, is your specific focus and what you need to do in each of these areas to ensure you successfully navigate the challenges inherent to each phase.

business life cycleThe Business Lifecycle is a concept used to demonstrate the typical progression of a business over time and is commonly split into the following five phases as shown in the graph on the right. The cycle is commonly shown in a graph form which depicts how sales and profits typically evolve during each phase. Understanding this concept is rather useful in helping business owners chart their course (plans and actions) throughout their business journey.
