We provide advisory services on financial & operational matters along with executive coaching and leadership with our most senior consultants and associates.
Our customized C2C-level program can also be expanded to include key middle managers. The timeframe is generally one fiscal year. During that time our consultants combine physical visits to clients’ premises with remote support.
Performance Improvement & Transformation Programs | Operational Turnaround
These are major transformation programs with the objective of significantly improving long term operational and financial performance. Through these programs companies seek to gain competitive advantage thanks to the implementation of a new operational / execution model – Operational Excellence becomes the competitive advantage. The timeframe for implementation ranges from 4 to 10 months. During this time, we analyze in detail the operations of your business and design and implement customized sustainable solutions to deliver measurable results. This type of program requires a Business Diagnostic to lay out a project Road Map and business case with ROI.
Initiatives & Projects Acceleration
This approach helps companies which have ongoing major improvement initiatives, but are unable to keep up with schedules, implement the program and measure progress and benefits. With our agile project methodology, we support our clients to structure, execute and get results from those initiatives/projects. Examples: implementation of a Road Map recommended by strategy consulting firms or corporate directives that subsidiaries are unable to execute.
Based on a pragmatic approach the objective is to understand the health of your business. Ranging from 2 to 4 weeks’ timeframe, a Business Diagnostic gives an overview of the problems impacting operational and financial performance. Upon conclusion, there is a clear project Road Map with performance improvement targets detailed by workstream and a business case with an ROI. This phase precedes any long-term Performance Improvement & Transformation program.

Similar in structure and timeframe to Business Diagnostic but tends to be more detailed on typical Due Diligence aspects – minimize the possibility of unknown liabilities and risk and become more comfortable with the acquisition of the business. Its primary goal is to understand how efficient and profitable the business model is from an operations standpoint.
