Modelling The Future





designing the future

It is often said, for change to occur, the new model needs to make the old model obsolete. Today’s economy is a case in point. With the shift from legacy businesses, to nimble organisations focused on serving their customer’s evolving preferences & tastes, new products & services are emerging within their target market that all have one thing in common…they started with an idea.

But what about the organisations and business leaders who are self-aware enough to know they need to innovate, but are unsure on where to start? This is a question Trim Tab was built on and thankfully, there is an answer…collaboration.

A problem shared is a problem halved, and there is nothing more fulfilling for the Trim Tab team to take on the burden of a client’s challenge, then supporting their navigation towards achieving growth. A journey which starts with an idea, but not just any idea, an idea which is well developed through a process of ideation

Once the process of ideation is completed, the future viability of the idea via a deep-dive into the market dynamics is undertaken to minimise the margin of error of success…and once this is done, a robust growth strategy is developed, that will ultimately guide the success of our client’s new venture, product or service.   

Like any endeavor where critical resources (time, money and labour) are deployed, it is incumbent on the individual or organisation to minimize the risk of failure. With Trim Tab’s policy of being rewarded not on potential, but on our ability to drive meaningful & material change, do we think we can genuinely achieve a win-win for our clients.

Modelling the future

Planning that delivers innovation and growth can be complex, time consuming and almost always have a number of stakeholders involved, making planning a task which is often under-resourced and under-nourished leading to future failings along the new venture, product or services growth trajectory.

Trim Tab brings together specialists who understand the power of collaboration, underpinned by detailed documentation & modelling which details the why, the what and the how through data analytics, data visualization, , budgets, forward looking cash-flow analysis so resource planning and implementation can be achieved efficiently and effectively, guided by the numbers.

If the 20th century was the golden age of capitalism, then the 21st century is destined to be the age of the entrepreneur. As legacy businesses mature, tomorrow’s ideas-based economy will be built by individuals & organisations who have the foresight and passion to develop innovative products & services, which have a laser focus on benefiting their target market’s shifting preferences & tastes.

Serving this eco-system of risk takers and visionaries is what motivates the Trim Tab team to be a resource for good, by cultivating entrepreneurship across industries, that enables entrepreneurial individuals & organisational leaders to do what they do well – efficiently and sustainably – whether that be a start-up company, NFP or existing SMEs that are looking to execute intrapreneurship within their organisation to activate, and achieve, growth. 

Through Trim Tab’s multi-disciplinary team, we are able to draw upon a broad-range of skills & expertise which supports the successful entry for entrepreneurs & business leaders launching new products & services into new & existing markets. We believe third-party collaboration is fundamental to a start-up’s early stage growth trajectory, as much as it underpins & nourishes the development of the culture needed for start-ups to not only survive, but thrive.

small & medium sized Businesses

Post the Covid19 pandemic, small to medium sized businesses (SMEs) were the hardest hit, with some sectors facing an almost complete reduction of their core revenue. Often described as the engine of Australia’s economy, SMEs are now challenged by tighter labour markets and rising inflation, which is placing increasing pressure on SME margins.

These challenges have seen SMEs place greater emphasis on unlocking value through innovation, by strategically pursuing growth opportunities, when traditionally a more conservative approach would been taken. Many of these opportunities are created through collaboration and working with non-traditional partners to identify, then execute strategies which deliver growth.

Engaging a third-party to develop new products & services is the tangible value Trim Tab adds through ideation, analysis of new markets and building robust strategies focused on increased sales and profitability.

Not for profit

Not for Profits (NFPs) and Social Enterprises face increasing challenges to not only access and derive sustainable revenue for their program delivery, but also the ability to invest in modernizing their organisation’s operations.

The reality is most NFPs have to do more with less and rely on the great unknown of people’s charitable goodwill, which in the current climate of rising inflation and economic headwinds abroad, is seeing less being invested in these life-changing causes.

As part of Trim Tab’s commitment to supporting NFPs and social enterprises in delivering positive change, we offer pro bono consulting services that aim to further enable NFPs to focus on what they do well, while modernizing their operations and growing their program capacity.
