STRATEGIC CONSULTING SERVICES
Our strategic consulting services are designed
to help you determine your strategic focus, assess the current
value of your company and develop strategic initiatives
to maximize this value, immediately or over time.
We utilize our services and expertise in combination with
you to improve the value of your business during the engagement
period. The same skills that we use during our corporate
renewal programs, interim CFO engagements and business brokerage
assignments can be brought to bear on your business to help
you take your company in whichever direction you chose to
We have five basic steps to our program designed to help
you understand, improve and realize the value of your business.
- Value Foundation - Your
business has a certain value to it at the start of the
engagement. We call this your Value

in order to gauge an initial sense of value that we can
use to guide us during the engagement.
- Strategic Focus Session
- We meet with you for an hour-long session to help you
chart your business and professional goals and to understand
the strategic strengths and weaknesses of your business.
After the session you will receive a written analysis
that outlines your goals, and your business strengths,
opportunities and challenges.
- Value Assessment - We begin
with a business valuation in order to determine our benchmark
value for improved performance. We then conduct an evaluation
of your operations, organization and management so we
can identify critical areas of business performance that
require improvement to increase the value of your business.
We provide a list of specific suggestions for improving
your business based on the results of this evaluation.
- Value Improvement - Based
on the results of our Strategic
Focus Session and Value Assessment
we meet with you to determine the next course of action.

you decide that your Company is poised to realize its
maximum value we work you to with plan your exit strategy
and sell your business. We are highly skilled in the Value
Realization process and have extensive experience in representing
the owners of privately held companies in confidentially
marketing their businesses nationwide. We utilize our
business brokerage expertise described elsewhere on this

your hard work and diligent effort over time. Throughout
the process, we work closely with you and your legal and

back to the top
a business is ready to be sold as is, either
because the owner has managed it to full value
or because extenuating circumstances require
that the Value Realization effort start now.
There are also times when a prudent owner
can prepare for the sale in an organized and
deliberate manner that allows him or her to
generate the maximum value possible for the
business while getting their personal goals
organized and implemented. Our
