Strategic Business Management


Strategic Business Management

Strategic Business Management: We work with you and your business to create an infrastructure that allows for personal growth and development of individuals while achieving your company goals. Through clever and experienced investigation, we objectively define issues and roadblocks within the business.

We often find are clients cognisant of these issues but are unsure of the next steps to take. We provide support and guidance to implement change to the infrastructure. We understand how important your people are, and that they have grown with you while weathering intense challenges.  And so, we workshop options to find solutions together.

The goal is a strategically aligned management team working towards your definition of success.  We ensure that your team consists of the right people in the right place owning accountability in a strong collaboration. 

Our approach

We work together to design a program that is unique and tailored to your business requirements.  In the first instance, we will meet with you and your leadership team to understand your current business plan. In some cases, we re-work this plan. We identify “bottlenecks” and growth-limiting performance. We then work with you to modify and effect solutions.

We devise your program to include a combination of:

  • Face-to-face meetings
  • Remote meetings and check-ins
  • Team workshops
  • An R&D project for you and your management team


The Team Workshops we run are fun, interactive, lively events. They enable your teams to focus on collaboration and understanding your business strategy. Your people will be guided to work together to agree a strategy and a plan which will improve direction in your business.

Charlotte is an experienced facilitator who understands company culture. She understands the key transitional phases of a morphing team. She will tease out the issues, call out the “elephant in the room” and thus, guide your team to harmony. We will also work through anxiety, insecurity and fear in a positive, constructive, and open environment.


Your business may benefit from a supportive, problem solving advisory board working with you to ensure you are challenged and guided to achieve your business goals.

Aide de MD can work with you to build a supportive and solution-focussed Advisory Board for your business. As part of the process we help you devise a skills matrix, and to select and invite board members so that you are assured a valuable, problem solving group with a diversified skill set.

Additionally, we can chair your Board, or be on your panel.

Case Study


We worked with a successful business with pro-active entrepreneurial management and clear 12 month business targets. However, the infrastructure was undefined due to rapid growth and resourceful, organic recruitment.


We were challenged with the task of developing infrastructure and processes without appearing to become micro-managing or over-investing in systems. An accountability framework was required and the management team needed encouragement and guidance to execute on the plan.


The following plan was customised and implemented:

  • Training: delegation and accountability frameworks
  • People: staff motivation and capacity and development
  • Comms system: WIPs and feed-back strategies
  • Coaching: for transitioning managers
  • Strategy: consulting and alignment


  • An efficient team “humming” in the same direction
  • Transparent accountability framework, and rapid fading of the “blame culture”
  • Decision making skills improved by the leadership team through clarity in direction
  • Relieved MD with a supportive and driven team
