Lots of directors in small or medium-sized firms decide to take on loads of jobs all at the same time. You look after the general business operations, you’re handling the financial side of things, you’re in charge of procurement, IT - the list goes on! 
 
If this sounds like you, then you can proudly claim the role of a MHD or a Many-Hatted Director. 
 
It’s a stressful role that’s full of responsibilities, but many directors often find it is the only solution in their firm. If money is tight, then you don’t have the resources to hire people to take on all of these roles for you. So, it falls on your shoulders to handle everything to the best of your abilities. 
 
 
 
 
 
There are a lot of IT companies out there which like to take a one size fits all approach with their work. They don’t tailor their services to work best for the businesses they’re being hired by, instead of using the same methods and tools as they would use on any job. 
 
Here at Green Giant Consulting, we take a different path. Each of our projects is specifically built around the client it is being made for, ensuring that you can improve your competitiveness and meet the desired outcomes you’ve had for your IT. Why exactly do we believe that this is so important, though? 
 
 
 
The role of IT in business has evolved in a very significant manner over the past 30 years, not least over the last decade. Virtually all companies now utilise and heavily rely on IT in a very big way. 
 
Unfortunately, many of them continue to follow the outdated protocol of running their IT infrastructure as a separate entity. In today’s climate, it simply HAS to be embedded within the company’s DNA. 
As an entrepreneur, you always want to keep up to date with what your consumers and other businesses want. In the current world of modern business, people expect the Amazon experience. More and more businesses and consumers are expecting the ability to submit orders electronically and track them online. It’s become increasingly commonplace to send delivery confirmations, invoices, and all other transactions online as opposed to relying on traditional postal options. The process is called electronic data interchange (EDI), and employing EDI could give you a competitive advantage over your rivals. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of using EDI for your business. 
New technology has revolutionised the workplace and given businesses more scope to compete in a global market. With the ability to send documents around the world in seconds, liaise face-to-face with colleagues abroad and work from any location, cloud-based computing has increased flexibility in the workplace and enabled companies to operate on a larger scale. 
 
SWOT analysis
Would you like a simple yet effective tool to get an insight into your business’ state of affairs? A SWOT analysis could do the trick. 
 
It not only allows for analysis of your whole business but can also give insights into each of your departments.  
 
The acronym SWOT stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats. 
 
Many businesses operate under the motto “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” and stick with existing systems for as long as humanly possible. Worrying about cost or organisational upheaval are probably the main factors for this behaviour on this text to edit it.
