    RR Bradley & Associates PA Hong Kong: Strategic Business Planning

    A Strategic Business Plan is much more than a tool to obtain financing. If you still have all you plans and ideas locked up inside your head... preparing a strategic plan helps you clarify your company's direction, ensures your key leaders are all "on the same page", and keeps both management and staff focused on the tasks at hand.

    A Strategic Plan is often needed when...

    • Starting a new venture, product or service
    • Expanding a current organization, product or service
    • Buying a new business, product or service
    • Turning around a declining business

    The Strategic Plan provides a blueprint, describing your company, its products, the competitive environment, management team, financial health, and business risks.

    The plan allows you to...

    1. Identify and describe the target customer profile, features, advantages and benefits of your new venture, product or service.

    2. Justify that your plans are credible by fully researching the need being filled with your new venture.

    3. Develop marketing plans including full descriptions of targeted promotional campaigns with implementation timelines. You also get to examine market conditions, the nature of your customers, as well as your competitors, sales potential, and projected results of your promotional campaigns.

    4. Develop staffing plans including identifying the key players, skills, attitudes and expertise needed to build the venture.

    5. Develop management plans including full descriptions of management systems and timelines for implementation.

    6. Develop financial plans including projected startup costs, operating costs, revenue, profits, and break-even analysis for the first 3 to 5 years.

    Projected financial plans allow you to effectively predict upcoming problems, or prevent them. In other words, the perspective gained through your Strategic Business Plan can make a significant contribution to your company's success, and help you get the funding you require. In fact, most lending institutions and private investors will not even talk to you without a solid financial plan.

    7. Identify building and equipment needs including vendors and cost estimates.

    8. Formulate company milestones including timelines for upcoming products and services in development.

    Remember: Failing to plan is planning to fail.

    Bradley Associates: Managing fraud and corruption

    THERE HAS BEEN much talk about how rapid growth markets (RGMs) are expected to be the drivers of the global economy over the next decade. RGMs are countries that emerged from the 2008 recession with minimum damage and which project significant growth. They include a number of economies from the Asia Pacific region. While this is certainly cause for cautious optimism, it also raises the concern that the pressure for these markets to generate growth may also increase the risk of fraud, bribery, and corruption.

    The Ernst & Young Asia Pacific Fraud Survey Report 2013, released just last Sept. 26, indicates that while many companies in the region have created, or are in the process of creating, policies and procedures to deal with fraud, bribery and corruption, there is often a disconnect in the local application of, and compliance with, these policies. The report surveyed top executives from Australia and New Zealand, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea and Vietnam. While the Philippines was not included in the survey, there are many important lessons that local executives can glean from the report. It complements government’s current anti-corruption stance and a similar drive in the private sector for more transparency and integrity in dealing with government.
