to move forward. Advice based on such thinking is the only
way consultants can help organisations.”

interest rates, power supply, etc. The assumption that with
sufficient finance the sector can outperform is not always
true. My long experience helps me conclude that SMEs need
to get into the skin of a business cycle and prepare an
annual and a 3 year Strategic plan, while measuring the
