Solving Challenges

Every year, thousands of businesses fail across North America. While business failures know no size boundaries, over 90% of Canadian business are small, and 98% of BC businesses have fewer than 50 employees. In BC, even though economic conditions are generally improving, there were 22,946 consumer and business bankruptcies filed in three years (2002-2004).

Starting a business is easy and begins with an idea, however, continuing to grow it is not, as owners deal with day-to-day operations, customers, suppliers, finances and human resources. The time needed for monitoring the market, adapting the business, and implementing a strategy to grow their business is lost.

When a business fails, it is due to factors that build up over time. Rarely do problems occur that cause a sudden failure. Most business failures are due to internal failures, not external factors such as competition or economic conditions. The most common reason for business failures include:


  • Inability to reach decisions & act on them
  • Poor: customer, supplier, employee relations
  • People: loss, stress or lack of training
  • Loss of control through creditors' demands
  • Reluctance to seek professional assistance
  • Growth without adequate capitalization
  • Ignoring adverse financial data
  • Inadequate financial records
  • Loss of impetus in sales
  • Competition disregarded due to complacency
  • Failure to anticipate market trends
  • Failure to promote & maintain favourable image
