A defining characteristic of business in north west Tasmania (including King Island) is that almost 90% of businesses in the region employ under 10 people. If small business is the backbone of Tasmania’s northwest coast economy, then small business operators are its intelligence and life blood.
To succeed as an operator of a small business, either an existing business or a new one, you need to cover many bases – both in the marketplace with customers and in the management of your business. In this series of business management articles, local management consultant and business adviser, Warren Moore, will focus on those aspects most critical to the successful operation of your business – these are the bits you’ve got to get right!
