The Levels Framework®

A tried & tested model for making the difficult transition up
from small to medium sized business

What is the Levels Framework®?

The Levels Framework® introduces business owners to a new way of thinking through a logical and insightful analysis of the challenges of business ownership. It has enabled SME businesses across the globe to identify where they are, their challenges, and how to get to where they want to go.

It focuses on building balanced businesses, giving the owner freedom and long-term sustainable wealth. The four drivers that interact with all businesses – timeteam, money and delivery are all in balance.

At its simplest, the Levels Framework® is a manual for growth that focuses on the changes a business should put in place to make the difficult transition up from a small to medium-sized company. At its most complex, it’s a guide to challenging and changing your entire way of thinking.

Is it relevant for my business?

The Levels Framework® is aimed at small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) i.e. those employing under 250 people. The framework has been presented to audiences large and small hundreds of times. It has been discussed at length with a wide range of business professionals and has stood up to academic scrutiny. Most importantly, it has been successfully put into practice by growing businesses with fantastic results over the last fourteen years. To put it simply – it works.

Making the complicated simple enables business owners & entrepreneurs to understand the path they are on and what they need to do to move forward. By recognising the constraints, the issues around imbalance and their symptoms within the business, the Levels Framework® can be used to our advantage.
