ProcessPreparing a comprehensive diagnostic analysis and action plan for your company
Where Do We Start?
It all begins with a meeting. One of our experienced consultants will explore with you your goals and challenges to identify the opportunities that will have the greatest positive impact on your business. To quantify the potential impact of cost savings, revenue growth and overall profit improvement over the next five years, and to create a shared vision for where we would be working to go with you, we will prepare an Action Plan for us to review together.
Our preferred next step with a new client, in most cases, is to prepare a comprehensive “Diagnostic Analysis & Action Plan” for your company. This four-week analysis sets the foundation for our holistic approach since all processes throughout the business are ultimately connected in a system. Much like an in-depth analysis by your personal physician, think of this Diagnostic Analysis as a complete health physical for your business — confirming what you know, identifying hidden issues, and providing a combined knowledge of where your business is today so we can accurately plan next actions to get you where you want to be.
If you have specific urgent issues that need to be addressed, our consultants will develop a plan with you for resolving them, and identify our best subject matter experts to lead the resolution process.
As you choose to implement our recommendations, our consultants will work under a Team Leader to implement a mutually agreed-upon plan to remove the impediments to profitability and growth.
Our Business Improvement Process
What Does It Cost?
Quite simply, the cost of our services for anything we do is far less than the value you get — or we’re not going to do it.
Your consultant will gain an understanding of your company, listen, clarify opportunities for improvement, be a sounding board for you, and work with you to develop the improvement plan for your company. Whenever appropriate, your consultant will arrange for a Diagnostic Analysis & Action Plan, or can arrange subject matter specific consulting to resolve virtually any business issues you may be facing.
Should your consultant determine the Diagnostic Analysis & Action Plan as the first step, you can expect a four-week engagement led by your consultant working with one of our Executive Analysts and various subject matter experts. Upon delivery of the Diagnostic Analysis, you will receive formal recommendations and the correlated level of impact you can expect from implementation. The professional time invested in the Diagnostic is valued at $30,000–$75,000 or more, but your cost (in most cases) will be a fraction of this. We offer a scaled pricing based on the number of employees with your company.
Base cost may be adjusted for multiple locations, business divisions or other complexities. For locations outside of the metro Atlanta area, reasonable travel costs will be billed for reimbursement. Please discuss your specific situation with your consultant.
