Press Release (ePRNews.com) - SANDTON, South Africa - Aug 10, 2016 - These are just two of the many findings from the research study conducted by the research team at Mapoko Research International (MRI), a Johannesburg, Sandton-based research company. The MRI team asserts that every business decision is a fork in the road – either to effortless growth or struggle and stress.
The research team at MRI is lead by Siya Mapoko, renowned author of two bestselling books Conversations with JSE AltX entrepreneurs and The Best Advice I Ever Got. Siya is the founder and Chief Research Officer. Siya says after writing two bestselling business books focusing on JSE-listed companies, it became evident that many privately-owned businesses never reach even half of their potential. Let alone live up to the vision of their founders. MRI then invested R1.8 million on a research study to investigate the UNCOMMON (never talked about) reasons why, and how, value gets destroyed by small and mid-sized companies.
The findings of this study are reported in an educational and engaging fashion. MRI selected parts of the study and present them as an hour-long educational video focusing on useful information and recommendations without boring charts and meaningless stats. To access the video presentation of this study you can go to http://www.siyamapoko.com/what-we-stand-for.html
Some of the findings presented in this video include:
· Why most businesses do not have a steady flow of big deals every month
· How more than 90% of businesses are losing thousands of Rands daily without even noticing
· The 12 mindset mistakes responsible for value destruction in most companies
Other more interesting features of this presentation include how some of the companies that followed the recommendations of this study increased their prices by 12 times, others added R100k to R1m in new business in 30 to 60 days, etc.
“For companies that are serious about accelerating their growth, without stress, there are two important things they must get right. They must have a segment of high-end clients and they must have a reliable system to routinely close big business deals. Unfortunately most businesses are lacking in both areas”, says Mapoko.
