Happy new year!!!
Before I start I wish you and your loved ones the best year and I pray you achieve all the goals and objectives you want to set out to do this year.
Inteco’s New Year Resolution
Let’s just dive right into it shall we? Initially, I wanted to have a 5 year plan then break that down to yearly plans. However, truth is Inteco has not settled down in the market. We are one day high next day low without really knowing why. Late last year we got the opportunity to set up our proof of concept which took quite nicely. This year we moved from that to becoming an official start up company. After the 2 and a half years of running around trying to start it we can now say we have started running a business. Until we settle down and become experts in our market planning for 5 years without concrete data does not seem wise. This is also the time where I, the business owner must make educated decisions. Processes must be put in and tested and adjusted accordingly.
That doesn’t mean though that we shall be passive and wait for the time we are ready to start. Therefore, Inteco shall set quarterly goals. They shall be very short term and result oriented. I won’t pull these goals out of a hat and say this is what we are going with. All these goals lead to the mission of what Inteco is about. Inteco has an overall strategy from the business plan that will need to be implemented eventually. A big chunk of this year will be building a foundation that can hold long and short term strategies.
Goals from January- March 2o15
You may ask why I chose to share this information with you. Well, it holds us accountable to you. You now know what to expect from us. That way you can say you did really well here but not so well here I think you should improve here. These are some of the things we want to have accomplished in the first quarter:
- Establish data entry processes: this includes ensuring that the data put in is accurate and not corrupt.
- Establish check and balances on money collection of inventory. The aim here is to use Inventory to check for theft and use money to counter check. This includes have a money collection system. As well as a process of checking inventory
- Create an account data entry worksheet.
- Define HR, Marketing, Operation processes.
It is quite a lot of work to be done. There is a lot of reading involved and decisions to be made. We are open to further suggestions and ideas. Inteco is as much yours as it is mine.
Until next time
