  • Business Planning

    Creating a Confident Future

    A sound business plan is one of the most important aspects of a business.

     

    • Are your organization’s goals, objectives, and priorities clearly understood?

    • What demographic or economic trends will impact your bottom line?

    • Which corporate policies need to change to ensure long-term stability?

    • How much capital will you need to continue growing?

     

    Let us help you develop critical thinking techniques to answer each of these questions and to ensure you are confident in the future success of your business. Our experience building strategic plans, growing business development, taking action, and generating results will guarantee a viable enterprise.

    Lean Improvement Framework

    This framework is a systematic and straightforward approach to lean practices, based on successful implementations worldwide. It can be applied to a variety of business issues, including improved delivery performance, reduced inventory, improved profitability, and improved product or service quality.

     

    Each lean implementation is specifically tailored to an organization’s situation.

  • Succession Planning

    Cultivating the Next Generation of Leaders

    The only way to effectively navigate the loss of leadership - whether planned or unplanned – is through a strong succession plan that identifies and cultivates the next generation of leaders through education and training. Succession planning should be a purposeful initiative that focuses on developing critical leadership talent.  The best companies use a structured process to accomplish this, and recognize a significant competitive advantage by retaining talent and generating a pipeline of capable leaders.

     

    Family business planning is often a specific component of organizational transition, and family dynamics create unique needs.  Anticipating future issues is the best way to avoid future problems.  Let us help you improve future decisions by insuring that policy formation is informed and objective…before you need it.  Our team works with you to develop robust succession plans that align current talent with future leadership needs to ensure sustained continuity and performance of a business.

  • Executive Coaching

    Cultivating Your Most Valuable Resource

    Coaching accelerates performance and contentment within executives interested in personal and professional growth. Many individuals – who are held personally accountable for meeting stated goals – experience enhanced decision-making skills, improved interpersonal effectiveness, superior performance management, and increased confidence as a result of executive coaching. Our team believes an investment in coaching is far less costly than substandard business performance and will result in enhanced skills and abilities to reach stated goals and objectives.
