Strategic Management Consulting for B2B
Is Your Business Stuck (or Worse)? We Help B2B Firms Grow
We are entrepreneurial, strategy-minded business consultants focused on helping business-to-business firms achieve sustainable, profitable growth.
Take charge of your future and set a new course.
Practical Management Consulting for B2B
Most businesses can improve their results significantly by taking a strategic approach, making smart decisions about where and how to deploy the firm’s limited resources. You just can’t afford to go after each and every opportunity that looks interesting.
Business strategy is all about focus and being very clear about which markets to target and what products and services to sell. But, what’s even more important is deciding which markets to ignore or even exit and why.
With 18+ years of experience as business consultants across a wide range of business-to-business markets, we help small and midsize B2B companies to become more proactive, make smart decisions, and chart a new course to achieve growth. Whether you’re a startup, emerging or established firm, we’ll collaborate with you on creating solutions for issues such as:
- Increasing sales
- Improving profitability
- Identifying the best markets
- Improving marketing
- Developing a strong differentiation
- Developing new products & services
- Leveraging technology
- Setting prices
- Avoiding the commodity trap
- Developing partnerships and alliances
- Formulating exit strategies
- Evaluating M&A options
As your B2B business consultant, we ask tough questions, challenge the status quo, and think outside-the-box to create insight and formulate smart solutions.
Using a data-driven, collaborative process, we assess the state of the business, get clarity on where you want to go, develop insight into the marketplace, and find out where the best growth opportunities are. We formulate the best strategy for your business and develop an action plan for achieving your goals. If needed, we can support you with the implementation of the action plan as well.
Focus on B2B
Our management consulting practice specializes in serving B2B firms. Business-to-business markets are different from consumer markets. We know what it takes to be successful in a B2B environment.
As business consultants, we take an entrepreneurial, growth-oriented and fundamentally strategic approach. But always balancing meeting longer-term strategic objectives with the need for quickly boosting sales.
Smart decisions about the future of your business based on facts, hard data, and real insight. No guesswork, wishful thinking, shooting from the hip or rushing to conclusions.
Small to Mid-Market Firms
Our experience as business management consultants is with small and mid-size B2B firms. We understand the urgency and budget constraints that many of these firms are facing.
Set Clear Goals, Create A Plan
No doubt, you have certain goals for the business. But, are you on track to achieve these goals or has success remained elusive? And, to be frank, how realistic are these goals in the first place?
Given the demands of day-to-day operations, owners rarely have time to reflect and plan for the long-term.
Unfortunately, this means that many companies are constantly in reactive mode, rather than being proactive and taking the initiative in the marketplace. Also, the challenges may seem overwhelming at times and it’s difficult figuring out where to start.
With our management consulting experience in B2B markets, we can help you to break through the impasse, take charge and make smart decisions about your firm’s future.
The best decisions are meaningless if you don’t put them into action. To get results you have to develop and implement a sound action plan.
If you feel that your firm is lacking direction and you’re constantly chasing the next opportunity, but it feels like success is always around the next corner, it may be time for a new approach. We’ll work with you on putting the business on the path to success.
Make Smart Decisions About Your Business
It takes commitment and bold thinking to develop the solutions that give your firm a competitive advantage in today’s fast-moving, dynamic markets.
In a highly hands-on approach, we team up with you on gathering market intelligence, generating insight, and making sound decisions.
No academic discussions or endless analyses, but a practical approach to fact-based, data-driven decision making.
Our approach is fundamentally strategic. But, we never lose sight of the need for creating quick-wins, balanced with the importance of achieving longer-term strategic goals.
Action Plan Implementation
The best solutions for improving your business are worthless if you don’t act on them. It’s in putting these solutions into action where the rubber hits the road.
As your business consultants, we can help you make sure that the implementation of the action plan moves forward and stays on track. Being involved with the implementation also enables us to support you in making the necessary course corrections if market conditions change.
