Why Use Us
For decades people have been doing business planning the same way and expecting it to start working.
You may have experienced number targets no one likes, projections no one believes in and 30+ page business plans no one reads, to name a few of the faults with traditional business planning methods and tools.
The outcome of these dated approaches is teams are left staring at each other as to what they should do first, the business value is not realised and business goals are not achieved.
Our approach, using the Concord System, is built on proven scientific theory and common sense, it simply works.

Just a few of the clients that we have helped transform their business.
Managing Director - Brewster Bros.
“Concord has ultimately delivered us a 4-year plan that everyone in our organisation can understand. By everyone, I mean every employee and we are proud to share our plan with our whole team to give them clarity on our goals and how to get there. Involving everyone in the creation of the plan and delegating responsibility for its delivery harnesses the brainpower of the whole business and not just our senior management team.
As a chartered accountant, I loved the finance work. The numbers were inspiring and not just dreamlike figures – they had substance behind them and could be logically backed up when questioned. In fact, our Chairman, who was highly sceptical at first ended up thinking they were too modest! Overall the content of the Concord System has given a much clearer path to achieving our identified stakeholder needs and what the results will be when we deliver them.”
Technical Director - Aldomak
“I have never seen a more effective method of running a business, it requires absolute rigour in what we do. It ensures that we are making all our decisions in the context of the greater plan which removes wasted effort.
I am now as certain as I can be that we will achieve our 3 years targets.”
Managing Director - Easter Greens
“The method of planning backwards excited me from the first time I saw it. When we put it into action it simplified everything and showed me what had to be done (and not done!) to deliver my vision for Easter Greens.
The work we did on the money was fantastic. I can now see what will generate the growth and expansion I am looking for, and how the money will actually happen in the years ahead. This keeps me very focused every day on where we should focus time, money and effort.
Ewan has worked closely with me, my managers and my team to get everyone on board with our one page strategic plan. Everyone can now see what the future looks like, what it means for them, and how they can help deliver it.”
