UK Small Businesses Missing The Trick In Market Research

According to London-based MBA & Company, more than half of the 600 small to medium sized companies surveyed are unaware of how to build their business plan and present it effectively to would-be investors.

In the opinion of one leading company, which helps start-ups and SMEs grow their business, the missing link is the well qualified business school graduate – the MBA.

Daniel Callaghan from MBA & Company comments that “many SME owners are unaware that using MBAs is affordable for their company. It is a wonderful, cost effective and largely untapped resource in the UK ”.

There are several possible reasons for this oversight. The survey found two out of three (61%) SMEs would use MBAs to help build their business strategy but had no idea how to find them.

Additionally, there is a common misconception that the use of MBAs is the preserve of large, cash rich companies. Yet the success of small business in the US proves otherwise.

“In the United States and in the larger business culture, using an MBA from a leading business school or a team of MBAs is second nature.”

Callaghan believes many fledgling companies are failing before they get off the ground because they have not produced an effective and comprehensive business plan. An MBA could change this.

“The MBA brings such huge advantages to a business which is struggling to grow and needs investment and planning. Much more needs to be done to make entrepreneurs aware of this”, says Callaghan.

MBA & Company is also calling on the Government to do more to promote MBAs as a business planning resource. 81 per cent of those surveyed were unaware of the Government’s Enterprise Guarantee Scheme, which is designed to provide funding for fledgling businesses.

Readers can find that in EXDYSIVITY: AN INTRODUCTION TO A NEW MANAGEMENT CONCEPT. “Old” business practices are becoming obsolete, yet companies and employees are still shackled to them, sticking to a black and white numbers mentality and ignoring the implications of the non-financial.

T&G Business Solutions Provides A Wide Variety Of Integrated Business, Technology And Consulting Services

In any economic client, but especially a fluctuating one, businesses are constantly forced to reinvent themselves to match client needs. Downsizing, growing, changing their campaigns, lowering prices or creating better projects are all “reinventions” of the company wheel. Many small businesses have gone another route, incorporating related products or services into their company model to offer a broader range to their clientele.

T&G Business Solutions has done just that. A woman-owned minority company founded in 2005, T&G provides a wide variety of integrated business, technology and consulting services. In addition, they are also a member of the National Minority Development Council (NMDC) and veteran-owned as well. Gloria Pipkin, President of T&G, and Tyrone Pipkin, Vice President and veteran, were proud to be part of such a prominent council, and have done their best to carry the ideals of the council to the public.

Since its inception, T&G Business Solutions has gained a list of prestigious business partners, including Cisco and Dell, as well as receiving Illinois MBE Certification and others. The company’s services now cover every area of end-to-end project management for technology initiatives, business improvements and changes, as well as capacity management analysis.

Tyrone Pipkin explains the decisions behind the expansion. “Most companies like ours offer partial management. For instance, they offer enterprise systems integration or network integration, data warehousing management or data warehousing development. This means that the clients have to go to one company to get part of the job done, and another company to get another part of the job done.

“In this highly competitive business,” Mr. Pipkin continues, “we felt the need to provide all these services under one roof – a one stop shop, if you will, for technology initiatives.” Thanks to T&G Business Solutions and the few companies like them, it has become possible for a business owner to implement needed technological improvements through one company, rather than several.

Included in their services are end-to-end network management, data warehousing and portal development, network integration and business change management, which allows their clients to achieve designated business goals, prepare the workforce for changes, manage the transitions and streamline their processes. In addition, Tyrone Pipkin says, T&G offers consulting services for project management, technical support, network design and network administration.

“If it needs doing,” Tyrone Pipkin continues, “and it has to do with business technological improvements, we can do it. We’ve proven that time and again, for small to medium businesses and Fortune 500 businesses alike.”

Although T&G is still a small business, with only eight employees, they’ve made sure that their employees are highly trained in their capacities as certified technical experts, professionals and administrators. They’ve gained six business certifications and offer over twelve different services that all work together to form the complete business solution.

“Never underestimate a small business,” Tyrone Pipkin says. “The smaller the business, the harder they work to gain clients – and we do work hard; not only to gain clients, but to give our clients complete satisfaction on their project, whatever it may be. We have a solid reputation in the IT industry specifically because we deliver proven results.
