Some reasons for hiring Griffioen Consulting
As experienced business consultants, it’s our mission to help you make smart decisions about your company’s future and to develop and implement sound action plans to get where you want to go.
Yes, it's nice to take a check to the bank, but our greatest award is watching your business grow and achieve its goals.
Typically, these firms do not have the resources for a Fortune 500 'big-budget' approach. Often, bootstrapping is the only viable option. We understand that and are used to working "lean & mean".
Business-to-business markets are different from consumer markets. B2B is all we do.
We have been providing business consulting to small and mid-size B-to-B companies for 18+ years. In our opinion, we got pretty good at it.
After all, why should only the big firms have access to quality business advice?
Strongly focused on business growth, we think outside the box and develop sound insight into your firm and the business environment to drive business decisions that outsmart the competition, grow sales, increase profits, and find new opportunities for growth.
Instead, we guide you through the information gathering and decision-making process in a highly collaborative fashion to help you develop the insight for yourself. The solution is not going to get implemented unless you have ownership and buy into the solution and the process.
Our process is demanding and challenges the status-quo. You can't get breakthrough solutions from playing around in the margins.
And, with our experience from projects across a wide range of B2B markets, the lessons learned from other industries provide ideas for solving your business challenges.
You're not hiring us to tell you that everything is just fine. You want us to help you fix the problems. We call it the way we see it, the good as well as bad.
Breakthrough solutions can only be developed by being completely candid about the state of the business, its ability to compete in the marketplace, and the options available going forward.
Ignoring key information or sweeping issues under the carpet won't solve anything.
In today's fast-paced business environment it's not always possible to make decisions based on hard data alone. You need to be comfortable with using information that is sometimes ambiguous, incomplete, or fuzzy.
This makes using a structured process for decision-making all the more relevant. The stakes are simply too high and your business is too important to rush through it and jump to conclusions.
Guiding you through the process is one of our key roles as business consultants.
But, in the end, the final decision about what to do is always yours. After all, it's your business.
Often, our role changes over the course of a project: from heavily engaged early on to more of an external advisor role towards the end of the project.
Whatever you're most comfortable with, it's your call.
On top of that, you can always cancel on short-notice, whatever the reason.
