Experience

Storms happen, even on sunny days! Experience Counts!

35 Years of Experience in Dozens of Industries Has Taught Us That:

  • Motivated companies, regardless of size or ownership, achieve the best results. A trigger-event is a good indicator of motivation for change.
  • We work well with growth and start-ups companies on a retainer basis. We are not a good choice for a "last ditch effort" to get funded.
  • When empowered and “unleashed”, employees are usually very insightful and hugely productive.
  • Multi-industry experience and a great model-template saves our clients time and money.
  • The software development analogy crosses all industries:  When you sequentially define, document and confirm your “Business Spec” and then your “Functional Spec”, the “Programming Spec” to deliver your strategy becomes obvious.
  • With a deep bench of experts and support to call in for an hour, a day, or longer, we deliver superior results while minimizing costs to our clients.
  • While family-owned and operator-owned businesses can present their own challenges, when motivated they often achieve vast improvements very quickly.
  • Companies have used and modified our financial models long after we depart.  Simplicity, without losing detail, is the key.
  • With daily rates starting at $1500, the ROI is rapid. Companies can gain valuable insight and a base model within a few days.
