Here are a few tips to consider:
Get good people around you; don't feel threatened by people who might be more qualified than you
Focus on the possible, whether dependent on new investment or not, rather than the limitations of current circumstances
Operational change or business improvement is usually premised on scale projects, a willingness to tackle challenges head on and investment for the future. Work-around solutions are of little value in the long run
Constantly challenge the strategy for the business and the alignment of resources and skills to fulfil it
Review and control where money is spent regularly - always cut costs where possible
Consider how you might need to change the company culture - re-think what is possible
