Rapid growth requires five systems working together. Collectively, these systems not only create your company’s culture, but they also determine your revenue and profit growth paths.
TrepOS transforms your people, processes and results
TrepOS is a combination of management habits, reporting systems, training programs, management philosophies, and hands-on guidance by our network of proven, experienced entrepreneurs. It’s highly focused; for example, one quarter you might focus on cash, and another on people.
Trep stretches from where the rubber hits the road – how do you track results, who do you hire, who do you fire, how do you fund your growth – way up to the most strategic elements of your growth trajectory: with whom do we partner, how and when do we go global, what business are we in?
Five systems, working together to create alignment across your firm
This isn’t a new-fangled theory or something a management consultant dreamed up last week. Every element of Trep has been proven to work in rapidly growing entrepreneurial companies like yours.
Our work starts with you, the entrepreneur who leads your company. In private sessions, we’ll take you through our Define Your WIN process. The goal is to define what success means to you on four levels: work, family, spirit and self.
Most entrepreneurs start off with answers like, “I want to get to $100 million,” but soon realize their WIN is more complicated. Understanding your WIN in detail is the key to getting exactly what you want.
Repetition turns a nice-to-do into a habit, and certain habits consistently produce stellar results. For example, we have found that creating an Action Items Database, holding Weekly Meetings with a certain format and pace, and establishing a Monthly Book of responsibilities makes a huge difference.
Steps like these make it crystal clear who holds responsibility for each critical task, and where your firm stands at any moment.
Cash flow is the lifeblood of a rapidly growing company. Once your team has developed essential habits, it’s essential to get a better handle on how your company is manages its cash. This isn’t a job just for your controller or CFO; it involves processes and decisions made in every corner of your firm.
On an alternating basis, our clients will devote an entire quarter to a special focus on cash.
There is no more important decision in life than the people with whom you choose to surround yourself. Trying to be a high performer with people who care more about weekends is a futile task. It’s not just hiring talent, either. That talent has to be in the right seats, and each person has to be able to work with other members of the team.
We have many tools to help you find and align properly the best people.
How do you stack up against competitors? How would you like to be positioned in the marketplace, versus how clients see you today? Can you acquire intellectual property that shifts your firm to a more aggressive growth path?
Once you have the basics down – WIN, Habits, Money and People – your firm is ready to leverage our strategic tools. These will change the trajectory of your company.
We stand behind these systems. We’ll stand behind you.
We don’t expect you to believe this because you read it on our web site. Talk to us, face to face. Judge for yourself whether this system is right for your company.
