Building Great Businesses

Achieving your version of great

What does building a great business mean?

We understand that a ‘great business’ means different things to different people who own and run a business. For nearly 60 years, we’ve helped clients build great businesses, and we can help you, too. Watch our video below to hear South Australian business owners talk about what a great business looks like to them, and how Accru Harris Orchard supports their plans.

How we build great businesses

We have developed a methodology that helps businesses to achieve their idea of greatness. It isn’t ‘one-size fits all’ because that goes against what we know about our clients: that their reasons for starting and being in business are all different. Our approach caters to the different motivations of business owners and their appetite for risk.

Kick-off Meeting

Work out your vision, purpose, and the things that are most important to you.

Review & Implementation

Review your current business against this vision. Identify and prioritise the gaps.


Create the right measurement systems, so we can track progress towards achieving the vision.

Maintenance Program

Meet regularly (monthly or quarterly) to work on the business together and achieve your vision of greatness.

It’s one thing to build a great business, but it’s another thing to keep it. Appetite for risk will often decline when there’s more to lose. Once you’ve built a great business (and sometimes before you can even think about building one), you need certain foundations in place. You’ll be more motivated to succeed when you feel secure about the things that matter to you most.
