Preferred Approach

Planning Day
We prefer to start each on-going engagement with a half-day or one day strategic planning session with the business owners and, if they choose, a few of their key management personnel. We gather a lot of information (financial, general business, team information, etc.) and we pull together a one day off-site meeting where together we explore where the business has been, where it is now, where you want it to go. We look at financial trends, profit planning and cash flow planning scenarios, and your profit improvement potential analysis. We look at management, operational and strategic issues. From this day you gain an immense amount of clarity on how to take your business to the next level. Action steps are developed, prioritized and we set up a time line for implementation. Our involvement continues to assist you with the implementation process.

A guarantee: We agree to a fee, you will give us a check up front. We will not cash this check until the end of this session. You need to be very satisfied with what we have been able to accomplish during this planning session or we do not cash your check.
