Objective of the group
The aim of the group is that attendees can:
- set clear and focused growth goals
- monitor progress on those goals regularly through the year
- be both supported and challenged by other members of the group
- receive specific expert input on challenges the group share
- make good decisions based on the peer group and expert input
How progress is tracked
BEFORE EACH MEETING ATTENDEES PROVIDE CONFIDENTIALLY TO MD2MD:
- Profit (measured in whatever way is appropriate to the business)
- Staff numbers
- 3-5 KPI stats specific to the business
These details are not disclosed to the rest of the group. They will be collated by MD2MD into percentage progress against the stated goals.
At the beginning of each meeting, MD2MD shares a graph showing how well everyone is making progress against their stated goals as a percentage and attendees will give an update in the context of the graph on what’s going well and what they need to do to do even better.
Group discussions and workshops
The group will meet six times over the year blending peer group discussions with expert speaker led content. Three of the meetings will be peer group discussions. After each peer group discussion the most common challenges will be assessed and a workshop prepared to address that specific topic as the core of a second meeting a week later. So the meetings will alternate between peer to peer input on immediate challenges, followed by an expert workshops presented by Bob to address challenges identified as common to the group.
