Add a comment   Posted on August 28, 2017   by damionviney

Many of us in small business have signed up for being Company Directors.  It would be interesting to know how many of us found out our legal responsibilities before taking on the role.  I’m prepared to wager that it is a small percentage.

Add a comment   Posted on February 28, 2017   by damionviney

Last month we recommended reading Gino Wickman’s excellent book Traction.  At the very end is an implementation plan for the methodology of the book and right at the top of the list is to establish who is accountable for what in your business.

Here at Crunchers we’ve been batting about business analogies and I am proud to coin a new one.
