Results-Oriented Growth Planning Process
Our results-oriented growth planning process has been fine-tuned over the course of working with many clients, across a wide range of B2B markets.
We don’t rush through the process or cut corners. Developing an effective solution takes time. Bad planning is often worse than no planning at all.
It all starts with data gathering and analysis to develop a solid understanding of your firm, capabilities, markets, customers, and the competition.
The comprehensive analysis goes deep to identify new ways to grow. It includes investigating new markets, products, technology, geography, M&A, to name a few.
The analysis leads to clear insight into the best opportunities for your firm. Not all opportunities that look interesting on paper are a good fit. You need to figure out which ones have the most potential and which ones to stay away from.
Insight about the marketplace and the opportunities drives the development of a detailed action plan. The action plan spells out how success will be achieved.
Next is the skillful execution of the plan. This is where the rubber hits the road. Without implementation, the plan is just a piece of paper.
Monitoring the results is very important to determine what’s working, what’s not, and if course corrections need to be made.
Why you need a strategic planning consultant
Make Smart Decisions About the Future of Your Business
Even small firms need to have a clear plan for the future. You just don’t have the resources to go after everything that looks interesting.
You have to pick your battles carefully. No company – especially smaller firms – has the resources to waste on pursuing opportunities that are not a good fit or that have little chance of success. Chasing shiny objects is nothing but a waste of time and money.
Our growth strategy consultants work closely with you to get clarity and develop insight to make smart decisions about the future of your business.
Our business growth consultants tailor the engagement to the client’s specific situation and objectives. One-size-fits-all solutions do not exist.
Developing the right solution for your firm involves an in-depth analysis of topics such as:
Not every customer or target market offers the same growth opportunities. Some markets are declining, others are growing. Some markets are a good fit for your firm, others are not. We help you figure out which markets you should be in, and which ones to exit.
You always have competition. After all, customers have a choice where they spend their money. Who are your real competitors, how do they stand out and where are their businesses headed? Determining how to beat – or avoid – the competition – is an important aspect of charting a path to success.
Are you selling the right products that meet the needs of your customers? Which other products should you be selling? Any products that are hardly selling out all? What is the next generation of products that you should be selling to achieve your firm’s growth potential? Let’s find out.
Many companies leave money on the table because of how their pricing. Pricing should be based on the value perceived by the customer, not the cost of production. We work with you on improving profits through a better approach to pricing.
For engineering and manufacturing firms, technology is at the core of their products and services. What bleeding-edge technology is on the horizon that will make current products obsolete and create new opportunities for growth? Let’s find out.
Diversification plays an important role in developing a growth plan for your business. Entering new markets or launching new products can be great ways to move the needle. But, there are risks involved. What is the best way to diversify your business? We help you to make the right decisions.
Sales & Marketing
How effective is your firm’s sales & marketing? Is sales a smoothly running machine working hand-in-hand with marketing on generating revenue? We help you to get a real ROI on your marketing budget and create a sales department that produces results.
M&A is often ignored by smaller companies. But merging with or acquiring another company can be a great way to accelerate growth by adopting new technology, getting access to another market, or simply growing market share by removing a competitor.
