CONSULTING SMALL BUSINESS
There are generally three problems small business owners discuss:
1. Being overwhelmed with ideas and information. You need a trusted source to help you design and implement a compelling action plan to take your business to the next level.
2. The need to learn business and marketing skills so you can increase revenue and grow your business.
3. Knowing what needs to be done — but simply do not have the time to juggle all the responsibilities of owning a business.
We can help you stop feeling overwhelmed and help move your business forward.
BUSINESS PLAN PREPARATION: If you are trying to obtain financing for a business startup or to grow your existing business, it is extremely important to have a professionally written business plan. This is a very important document that often serves as the company's first introduction to investors. We can act as your business startup consultant and help you thru the process.
MARKETING PLANS: Does your organization need help to increase your company’s sales with effective marketing plans? Let us help. We can create a market analysis including size, segments, growth, competitors, customers, and buying behaviors. We can then assist you in developing good crisp marketing strategies and tactics to reach targeted market, segments, channels and customers.
BUSINESS ANALYSIS: When is the last time you had a "fresh set of eyes" evaluate your business? We know... we know! It is very difficult to open yourself/your business to an independent analysis. But, it must be done! Sometimes, we are unable to see potential growth or market changes without an analysis of our business.
We come in and review your business systems. This business analysis will show the strengths and weaknesses within your business. You can do a self-assessment, but are you doing an assessment with a "fresh", "critical" and "competitive" eye? An analysis of your business gives us all an excellent starting point for improving your business operations.
BUSINESS OPERATIONS CONSULTING: We help with strategic planning, cash flow planning, cost control, budgeting, product costing, designing an estimating system, management issues, wage and compensation systems, quality systems, quality improvement programs, new product introduction systems, factory layout, production line layout, process development, inventory management, production planning, people management systems, merit pay systems, business performance metrics and more.
EMPLOYEE HANDBOOKS: An employee handbook is the most important communication tool between you and your employees. A well-written handbook sets forth your expectations for your employees and describes what they can expect from your company. An employee handbook should describe your legal obligations as an employer, and your employees' rights. If you want to have a successful small business, you must have a solid ground on which you and your employees stand in agreement about your company and their workplace.
POLICY & PROCEDURE MANUALS: Written policies and procedures should be at the heart of every organization. The objective of policies and procedures is to document an organization’s policy for operations and the procedures necessary to fulfill that policy.
