Many a times businesses grow from a tiny startup to a large one. We call it an organic growth. But usually from the inception stage, especially in traditional businesses, the promoter designs his business copying a competitor. As the business grows, the competition in the market will get more tight. It will no longer be possible to survive by doing the same thing that other competitors also do.
The need to do something crazy, totally different, that which will catch your competitors off guard giving you the advantage of time is needed.
This might not be possible by the existing management team, who are fully oriented to the present way of doing things. The routine processes who have made their creative juices low and dry. The hierarchy in the organization against promoting any employee to be innovative. At this times, businesses need an expert from outside to bring fresh ideas.
This expert will not only bring in fresh ideas, put will also work out to break mental barriers by making the employees themselves bring about new ideas (to create a sense of ownership and commitment). A external consultant can break heirarchy barriers and bring out the best from anyone. And then set budgets, targets and make action plans that can be applied to visualize the plan to action. It does not end there, as plans on a paper are useless unless its dynamic. That is can be changed from time to time, based on the changing market conditions or response of its stakeholders.
