A Brief Look at our Team
an Entrepreneurial approach to consulting
Good ideas are not necessarily good opportunities. Good opportunities are not necessarily valid opportunities.
We help you to better understand which is which, and what valid opportunities are worth pursuing.
Do you have a Marketing Plan, Operations Plan and Financial Plan that are based on SMART goals?
A quality business plan is resilient, promotes innovation, fosters employee engagement, and takes advantage of valid opportunities.
Have you developed a Value Proposition that is sound, cogent, and unbiased? Have you Validated your value proposition?
A high quality, actionable, and opportunity-based strategy can be difficult to craft, and even more difficult to match with internal capabilities.
Facilitating value is the job of your employees, machinery, and other daily operations. Maximizing value is why you hire great managers.
Creating value is what entrepreneurs and consultants are brought onboard to do.
Create new value, and gain a competitive advantage.
Are you a Subject Matter Expert in you industry? Are you aware of the trends and factors affecting change in your industry and market?
We offer coaching and training services, that can include Industry Analyses, and Market Analyses. Let us help make you the expert you need to be.
We use robust diagnostics and planning tools, surveys and reputable sources of quality information to determine what is taking place, what needs changing, and how to make it happen.
Our in-house model, the Business Planning Methodology, is the most robust analysis and diagnostic tool that also immediately creates an actionable plan.
