ScaleUp Radio

May 3, 2021

This week’s episode of ScaleUp Radio is looking at the vital piece of running your business - planning.

I realise that it’s been difficult to do any kind of planning over the past 12 months or so - but as everyone starts to emerge out of the pandemic, and businesses are starting up again, this is a great time to start planning.

Specifically, we’ll talk about working on your 3-Year Plan

This episode is a replay episode, but the advice in it is just as relevant as when we first published it; in some ways, even more so.

In the episode, you’ll hear from:

 - Peter Roper from Family Business Practice

 - Giovanni Finocchio from Midven

 - Kul Sanghera from Worcestershire Business Central

And we cover some of the big questions around a 3-Year Plan, including:

 - Why bother with a 3-year plan for your business?

 - It might sound obvious, but how often should you do one? Also, with that in mind, should we also be thinking longer than 3 years ahead?

 - What should you be thinking about when you’re putting your 3-Year Plan together - how do you start?

 - Who should be involved in forming the plan? And making sure that it’s executed?

 - How do you decide when to keep to the plan and, when circumstances change, when to move away from it?

You’ll also hear a few mentions of a poster that was shown at a meeting that was held just before the recording.  Something we call the SmartWeb® If you’d like a pdf of copy of it then please email


It’s a great conversation, covering businesses across the spectrum including family businesses and those seeking venture capital investment - nicely covering most aspects of this important topic in anyone’s scale up journey.
