Adam Harris is one of the founders of Transmentum, a business coaching company that helps MSPs to grow and succeed. Interesting fact about the origin of Transmentum’s name… Comes from Transition and Momentum combined into two.
A lot of traditional VARs have gone to the MSP successfully and some have stagnated because they did it late or needed different tools. A lot of issues come from the lack of vision and this is where Transmentum comes in and helps answer some of the questions such as…Where are you now and Where do you want to get to?
A successful transition needs to be a cultural change and consensus at the management level. Once you have committed to transitioning, it could take from 12 months to 3 years. Constant communication internally is vital as you get your team be part of the project.
You have to step out of your business to see what you are doing well and what you need to improve on. You definitely need to take a proper business assessment test to be able to benchmark yourselves in a number of different aspects in order to help you move forward.
