CREATING A NEW COMPANY

12 topics for entrepreneurs

Creating a new company is an exciting process in which, from the beginning, two factors should not be missing: innovation and agility.

Neither our environment and culture, nor the administration, will facilitate the process. Especially in terms of financing and support for new projects.

As for people, what is most striking is the lack of knowledge in basic business processes and the loneliness with they have to face decisions that can later be key.

HARMONIZING...

Innovation and performance

Innovation and performance are not contradictory terms, but on the contrary, they are complementary. So that the higher innovation the better the performance.

However, they can produce tensions in the organization, since one is directed to the future and the other is a subject of the present. There are two basic processes that compete for resources. That is why I speak of 'harmonizing' innovation with performance.

Innovation is the fundamental resource to improve performance. But innovation is a change and it is a process that must be covered by the entire organization.

INNOVATION IS STRATEGY

The strategy on one page

A single page should be sufficient to effectively communicate vision and strategy formulated through a few main or strategic axes.

That's why we present a model that is:

* A way to express the vision and strategy in a clear and summarized way.

* A tool to help SMEs.

* An efficient formulation with limited time and resources.

* A guide to define the strategic axes and clear objectives.

* Simplify communication.

* The construction is based on what we call "Strategy Tree".

INNOVATION IS A PROCESS

Innovate

If we say to innovate is to bring good ideas to reality, with success and continuously, then is not the result of genius, chance or luck, it's a process. A process that is designed, implemented and improved in all companies and organizations and favors the creation of an innovative culture.
Innovating is no longer an option, it is imperative and it means:
.-Do something new. Innovate in products or services.
- Positioning in the market or segment in a different or new way. Innovate in the value proposition and in the positioning in the market.
- Do things differently. Innovate internal processes.
- Change paradigm. Create a new "mental model" or category.
