Owner’s Edge LLC’s business management consulting services span several areas critical for your business success. We help you, the owner, work "on" your business rather than just "in" it. Our experienced consultants help you develop and execute the strategies for you to reach your personal and business goals. Most importantly, we can solve your problems by driving operational excellence.
Our operational focus on flawless execution is what sets us apart from other business advisors. The four major areas in which we can help your business are:
- Strategies to improve growth in revenues, profitability and cash
- Guidance and programs to change process and structure to match the current and future operational needs of your business
- Transition and exit planning - an area every business owner needs to focus on regardless of where you are in your owner lifecycle
- Business recovery and financial restructure - a situation many companies are finding themselves in as a result of the current economy
How do we get to the solution that's right for you? It starts with an Operational Assessment, a proprietary, seven-step program which completely evaluates your business and strategic direction - from revenue, staffing and processes to financial structure and your competition. From there, we create custom metrics and a dashboard to measure your progress. These steps alone will help you work on your business and result in a more valuable, sustainable and transferable business model.
Our advisors can facilitate strategic planning meetings to identify problems and opportunities in all areas of your business, with a focus on your core values, strengths and weaknesses prioritized actions needed to reach your strategic goals.
Your business partners and your team will have a heightened awareness of where you are and where you need to go, but most importantly a focused and clear method to get there. Ongoing access to an Owner’s Edge advisor will assist and keep you on track throughout perhaps the hardest part of your journey - the implementation phase.
Without growth to its top and bottom line, over time a business will die. Where do you want your business to be in ten or twenty years? The answer depends on the lifecycle stage of a business - a “young” business is all about cash. As the business grows and prospers, profitability is added to the mix yet cash is normally still tight. As the owner and business matures, the business model may become one of comfort and lifestyle. Growth is often compromised by the decisions of the owner. Owner’s Edge can advise business owners on growth strategies to drive the long-term value of your business, no matter what lifecycle stage you are in.
Owner’s Edge can provide operational professionals with expertise in sales, operations and finance to help guide business owners and develop programs to change process and structure to match the current and future needs of the business. By reviewing your processes, staffing, revenue, delivery, competition and many other factors, we can better understand where you are and what to do about improving your outcomes and move your service or manufacturing business to a higher level of performance.
As a result of the current economy, many companies are finding the need for business recovery and financial restructure. From turnaround situations, obtaining business loans and funding, and grant programs to analyzing your financial statements, pricing and risk levels, Owner’s Edge can help you implement strategies to achieve real value and sustainable, transferable profitability.
This is an area every business owner needs to focus on regardless of where they are in their owner lifecycle. For those considering retirement, business succession or other transition scenarios, having a process in place to protect your business and wealth/value is key. Owner’s Edge assembles a team of transactional service providers including M&A, valuation and finance professionals, and tax and insurance experts to support all of your succession needs. We can measure your readiness to exit, help you choose the best option, and then execute your strategy to reach your goals.
