Don’t let tough times kill your company. Get guidance and capital.
No individual or organization can be effective in analyzing itself.
“You must have outside knowledge.” W. Edwards Deming
Businesses contact us because they are struggling and have reached the stage of awareness where they can benefit from the right outside knowledge. They have tried the accounting/financial “fixes” of layoffs, pay cuts, belt-tightening, stretching vendor payments, etc. And, still they are struggling.
In HOW THE MIGHTY FAIL, Jim Collins describes the 5 stages of corporate death. He points out that only when leaders can move beyond the
• denial of their risk and peril (Stage 3), and
• lurching for seductive quick fixes and hopefulness as a strategy (Stage 4)
can they avoid capitulation to irrelevance or death (Stage 5).
We provide outside knowledge from decades of working with turnarounds in a variety of industries. Our analysis goes well beyond the accounting/finance disciplines and is swift and multi-pronged (sales, marketing, logistics, procurement, innovation, process, productivity, etc).
We ALWAYS find creative ways to reduce costs and we ALWAYS find ways to increase revenue. ... ALWAYS.
At times we may consider accepting an equity position to offset our fees, and/or provide access to capital.
References are available. Because of the sensitive nature of turnarounds:
•We never reveal the names of turnaround clients without approval
from clients on a case-by-case basis.
•We seek that case-by-case approval for you to speak with clients only
after a thorough exploration with you about whether or not we are a good
fit for your situation.
