What you’ll get out of this transformational program
The CMS360 program exists to support high growth businesses, entrepreneurs and established companies to become investor ready in preparation for the next stage of their business. The program also provides tools, support and best practices for ongoing management.
It caters to launching a new business, moving to the next level of an existing business or entering new markets. The program is designed to mitigate operational risk and drive durability of a company.
Our inestor-readines framework identifies 21 distinct topics across 7 core business themes.
The result of analysing all these aspects will allow you to develop plans and practices that we collectively call the Ozone Model:
The Planning Workbook
Work towards a perfect 10 score for your business across each of the 7 core business themes with our detailed planning workbook.
The scoring process is a highly effective way of bringing your team to consensus, ensuring you have considered all topics, and to ensure blind spots do not appear as you operate your business.
Help, Support & Accountability
In addition the core framework, workbook, guide notes and instructional resources, the program provides interactive support through our private Facebook group, instructional videos, and regular content from a wide range business experts.
Whatever you need to get to the next level. We've got you covered.
Who is it For?
The CMS360 program is designed to help you get your tech start-up ready and attractive to investors. The framework also works for scale-ups, mid-size businesses and corporates. If you are an ambitious entrepreneurs looking to expand CMS360 is for you. The program is also ideal for students or other individuals that are not currently running a business but wish to learn practical methods for business management.
High growth start-ups and scale-ups will benefit directly from understanding the mechanics of next-stage organisational design, operational planning and operational management. Indeed such businesses operate at a high-risk stage and often do not have the budget to hire sufficiently experienced operating management.
Mid-size businesses and corporates will benefit from the program by learning new ways to go about managing change across the organisation. In addition you will be accessing current best practices modelled on the needs of high-growth businesses that must adapt quickly or face acquisition or extinction.
Students and individuals that are not currently running a business will benefit by tapping into methods and practices that are more practical than academic. We believe this will drive and support entrepreneurs of the future.
