The Challenge

The environment we are in is:-

Volatile – change happens rapidly & on a large scale
Uncertain – the future cannot be predicted with any precision
Complex – challenges are complicated by many factors & there are few single causes or solutions
Ambiguous – there is little clarity on what events mean & what effect they may have!

If like most other business owners you are finding this business environment challenging, you are likely to also be wearing too many hats & finding your “thinking time” consumed fire-fighting daily demands. At times the weight of your problems can seem insurmountable & the way forward difficult to find… Doing it alone is not an option!


“Collaboration” involves the melding of the knowledge & expertise the business owner & their team have of their industry & business – with our proven business know-how & well tested resources, all focused on “enhancing their capability & confidence in the way they lead & grow their business!”.

Our approach ensures a mutual commitment to align our efforts & resources with the owner’s desired objectives, whilst probing & challenging to discover the real barriers to success.

We then work together to co-create customised strategies, actions AND ensure their implementation, so you move your business in the right direction.

Our Approach – Creating Leveraged Capability

Achieving more adaptive & nimble thinking, decision-making & execution means you can’t afford to waste resources “reinventing wheels”!

As such, it makes absolute sense to leverage your capability by tapping into the knowhow, skills & resources of experts that have gathered their know-how from successful practical experiences.

People that have the flexibly to adjust their approach & style quickly to suit your different situations, at times deviating from the strategic path to address burning issues in the business or help capitalize on a fresh opportunity that has appeared for you.

A flexible approach that is customized to suit the client, is exactly why private business owners work with us at Chess!
