Make your business successful with the right focus

As a founder and/or CEO in a privately owned business you have a lot to think about. It’s easy to get caught up in day-to-day operational activities and can be hard to free up time to time to see the company, the business idea – and life – in a broader perspective. Adopteur takes you and the company to the next level by focusing on different areas – one at a time. You develop the founder’s role by setting clear ownership terms for the enterprise, agree on the right requirements for the board, mentors and advisory board and streamline the operational tasks with a clear business plan. By creating and following the plan your life and entrepreneurship becomes more profitable, fun and satisfying.

Decide what you want your company to do

OWNERSHIP STRATEGY

In a corporation, there are three governing bodies; the owners, the Board and the management. In owner-managed businesses it is common for one or more persons to share all three roles simultaneously. It is important to distinguish between the three roles as they are linked to different responsibilities and duties. If you mix the roles you won’t be able to lead the company aggressively enough and the resulting ambiguity will make it difficult to reach the full potential. An extensive questionnaire and a workshop can be the starting point for putting together your personal, professional ownership strategy.

Put together a professional board and use it as a strategic tool

BOARD EXPERTISE

A clear and written ownership directive often change the perspective of the company. With a comprehensive owner directive in place, you will have a clear view of what competences to look for in the members of the board, and what mix you will need. The board, respectively, will be able to focus on strategic tasks and provide clear guidelines and support for the management. Once the goal and the way forward is agreed upon – “this is where we are and this is where we want to be” – it is easy to see what skills are needed to make the journey. All must ge integral parts of the whole – vision, goals, strategies as well as the business concept and the operational plans.
