Major Change

• Buy-Sell


Business owners planning to sell their enterprise can do so at a higher value by having cost-effectively set the stage for better protection of all key stakeholder interests.  You complete this task by efficiently obtaining a mathematical benchmarking for the people side of your operations, and doing so specifically in regard to your company’s performance.

If you, as potential purchaser, are already convinced that every company’s business culture is both a real and key factor of momentum, profoundly effecting future company performance, for good and for ill, you will perhaps be open to learning what you might require from the seller of an enterprise of interest to you.

•  Turn-arounds and transformations

BusinessTransformationOrganizations of every shape and size, from every industry and sector, can find themselves in a situation where they are in decline in spite of past successes and accomplishments. Jim Collins reminds us in his 2009 book How the Mighty Fall that an organization might find itself significantly down the path of deterioration before it recognizes the extent of its failings. These are organizations in need of a turnaround or transformation – a condition which, if not addressed with sufficient resources in an aggressive time-frame, will result in long-term damage or destruction of the enterprise.  We can help.  Learn more
