Entrepreneurial businesses, professional service firms and other organizations periodically grapple with operational, financial or human resource issues, which tend to linger or never get addressed.
SBC can conduct a concerted and objective assessment and planning process to determine how to maximize possible opportunities or determine and address the real source of an existing problem. Michael Smith and Maggie Behar’s roles are to help each client crystallize the real issues and clearly define the desired outcomes, which will make a difference in the business.
Typically, issues may include improving employee morale, whether to acquire another business, addressing poor employee or partner performance, stemming employee turnover, improving profitability, cutting costs, positioning the sale of the company, or negotiating a complex merger.
This process includes conducting confidential interviews both within the organization and with outside advisors, analyzing financial reports, corporate records and performance reports. Michael and Maggie meet collaboratively with the owners/executives to review their findings and recommendations, present a range of options and develop a “game plan” for moving forward. Ongoing advice and counsel assures implementation.
