Avoiding the Pitfalls that Impact Growth

There are natural growth hurdles where businesses must change and perform differently to continue to grow. There are also industry changes that necessitate change.  Businesses that refuse to change tend to become stagnant and fall behind the competition. In essence, they stop evolving and get eaten by the competition.

Optimizing Your Business to Free Up Cash

While growing a business, it is essential to operate lean and mean. This allows companies to generate the necessary cash to continue to invest in the company or develop a war chest. Reducing costs is a start, but is often not enough. The real challenge is turning these reductions into a competitive advantage or putting the cash back into the business to fuel more organic growth, without the need for external capital.

Our Process is Simple and Pragmatic

Our experience guides a smooth, strong, well communicated partnering approach with clients.  Acrelic advisors often complement an existing team and provide guidance, program management, quality control, and pace-setting.  The chosen paths for client engagements are meant to be performed in weeks, not months and shown to be actionable in short order.  Our approach begins with DISCOVERY.

1. Discovery

Discovery, also known as the Landscape Phase, provides the baseline of understanding to the scope and dimension of the effort.  In order to understand the root problems and establish a more specific scope we conduct the following:

  1. Establish a baseline and current view
  2. Assess any relavant internal plans, processes and assumptions
  3. Establish the desired/expected outcomes, specifications, objectives and other results needed to succeed

2. Conduct GAP Analysis and Secondary Research

At this point, we know what we know and most likely what we dont know.  This phase is critical in filling in the holes and driving closer to the assumptions to drive to a solution:

  1. Scope the effort to close the data gaps
  2. Review Available Research and Client Business Plans for strategic guidance and Identify Tangential areas that can affect the effort including regulatory, competitive, supply chain and other relevant factors
  3. Produce Strategic Characterizations of the Project, CRitical Metrics and Key Success Factors to measure, and Provide a foundation for creating an objective rating and ranking process to understand the top finding and issues

3. Research, Analysis and Workshops

After Researching to Close the Knowledge Gap, its important to Understand what we have learned, analyze the root causes and compare/prioritize the strategic alternatives for moving forward.  To get there, some workshops may be valuable to get common understanding across to the leadership team engaged in the effort and to create objective basis for ranking and prioritizing the steps needed to execute.

4. Operationalizing the Plan and Preparing to Launch

The Culmination of the effort is a set of actional strategies, objectives and tactics that have been prioritized, evaluated against risks, and rated for optimal rewards based on the clients current needs.  This typically includes the action plans and financial pro-formas to measure the progress of the implementation.
