Operational Strategy Engagement
Our core service offering is called an Operational Strategy Engagement, which assesses our clients' current operations and provides prioritized recommendations for improvement. This engagement is conducted in three phases:
Discovery & Research: We review our clients' existing company structure as well as conduct qualitative and quantitative research gathered from interviews, observation, and surveys. These data are collected into a detailed insights report with identified operational issues, inefficiencies, and gaps as well as opportunities to propel higher performance.
Action Plan: Based on the research, we create a personalized action plan with prioritized, tiered recommendations for our clients. The plan includes a detailed task list with proposed deadlines and accountability.
Execution Follow-ups: Strategy is great, but execution is crucial, so we follow-up periodically after the the delivery of the action plan to monitor execution progress and consult as needed on follow-up questions.
