Practice Solutions

A smooth-running, harmonious practice that staff and clients like to come to depends on the answers to questions such as: What do clients expect when they bring their pets to you? How do they feel about the value they receive –Vs- the fees they pay? How skilled and efficient are your staff members? How strong are their communication skills? No two practices are alike. No two solutions are alike. Work with Karyn to find customized solutions that fit you.

Strategic Planning

Strategic Planning (SP) will help you gain better control of your practice, provide focus and clarity to your team and develop concrete long-term and immediate action plans to achieve the results you desire.

Approach

SP should be clean and simple and address the below questions:

1. Where do we want to go? (Vision/Mission)
2. Where are we today? (SWOT analysis)
3. What do we have to do to get there? (Priorities and Action Plan for current year)

SP usually involves the whole practice team or in very large practices, the department heads and practice leaders. Predicated upon pre-work and preparation by the practice, SP usually takes at least three days on site.

Benefits

Practice owners that do SP usually find, that in addition to helping them gain clarity, focus and improved control of their business, it is a great team-building exercise. The SP discussions educate everyone about the practice’s business, values and goals and help get everyone on the same page and working together to achieve them.

Are you ready for Strategic Planning?

1. You are considering, or have just completed, a major change or transition of some kind.
2. You are stalled or drifting and don't have fresh ideas for how to recharge and grow.
3. You are in trouble and seeking solutions.
4. You've been told you have to do it. (Usually by a consultant or new owners.)
5. You are in the habit of doing annual strategic planning and can't imagine running your practice without it.

If you answer yes to any of the above questions, you could benefit from SP. There is never a bad time to do strategic planning. Strategic Planning can help re-energize a stalled practice, jump start growth in a good practice, and turnaround a crisis.
