Dynamic economies and regulated environments magnify complexity and risk in the strategic decision making process. Sound and thoughtful strategy influenced by experienced advisors is becoming increasingly more important. A strategic advisor that brings perspective and pragmatism to your organization can positively impact performance, profitability and operational excellence.
We work collaboratively with our clients by bringing innovative thinking, proven strategic frameworks, and implementation skills to deliver organization specific solutions. We provide functional strategy that compliments your management team and other professional advisors.
Strategic Partnerships and Planning
Organizations that do not have strategic partners operate at a competitive disadvantage. Partnerships can be complicated as no two organizations’ goals and objectives are completely aligned with each other. We can assist organizations in vetting potential strategic partners in order to maximize leverage, scalability and incremental value-add. The result produces a mutually beneficial relationship, while fulfilling the objectives and missions of each organization.
Financial Resource Expansion
Continuity of capital is the most critical component to the continued development and growth of an organization. We help assess organizational capital needs and facilitate the capital raising process. We have relationships with angel investors, venture capitalists, private equity firms, nontraditional lenders, and conventional lenders that provide capital to a wide variety of organizations. We also work closely with organizations in leveraging federal, state, and local tax credits and other economic development incentives.
Engaging key stakeholders at the right time, in the right manner, and with the right message is absolutely necessary in order to ensure project success. In addition, we believe that if you do not take ownership of your story, someone else will. We work with organizations to determine the current state of the organization’s environment, identify key audiences, craft information needs, design strategies to trigger stakeholder engagement, and develop initiatives, programs, and products for achieving communications goals.
Often, an organization’s issues are too large and complex to be solved exclusively through internal analysis and processes. In these circumstances, assembling a coalition of groups and individuals can be an effective strategy for addressing these issues. We advise organizations in coalition building and messaging strategies to help solve complicated and external organizational issues.
Government and agency decision-making impacts every organization. Protecting organizational needs and interests in the public arena is critically important to long-term sustainable success. We understand public policy and work with organizations, combining strategic advice with proficiency in government, administrative agencies, strategic positioning, and communications in order to maximize organizational input and capture available business opportunities.
