Successful Strategies for Navigating Business Transition
We recognize that as a business leader, you must continuously cope with ongoing change: whether transforming your business to take advantage of new market opportunities, restructuring to improve operational efficiency, or responding to new regulations and risks. This requires a rapid, proven and agile response which ensures that the right people, processes and technologies are in place to enable peak performance, no matter the competitive and economic conditions. Strategies and Solutions Group (SSG) gives you the expertise needed to grow your business, drive revenue, improve efficiency and become more agile and responsive.
Founded by a team of professionals averaging over 20 years of experience in the field, we have been providing effective strategic and analytic services to our clientele for decades. Combining cross-industry, operational and technology expertise to successfully manage transformation and provide for lasting business performance, we take a unique approach to consulting: We listen, and co-innovate with our clients to ensure lasting success.
Setting & Realizing Executive Goals
Business executives are often under significant pressure to meet goals and to grow their business. At SSG, we have experience helping executives navigate this process in a way that ensures success. We understand the unique needs of executives and entrepreneurs, and provide the structure, the accountability, and the support necessary to bring your goals to full realization. If your business or organization has never undergone a facilitated strategic planning session, you're missing out. The benefits associated with these sessions are profound. We bring your leadership team together using a wide-band Delphi approach to develop a road-map towards your goals with active buy-in from your full team. SSG's Facilitated Strategic Planning Sessions are a powerful tool that can carry your business to new levels of success.
Business Exit & Succession Strategies
When it's time for a small business owner to retire or move on, should they shutter their business, sell it, transfer it to their employees or family members? This is a complex decision involving many important variables. Luckily for you, this is where we shine. SSG can assist you during this critical time by discovering your goals and constraints, and working together to create a plan that will optimize your outcomes. Our expertise in business exit strategies will give you peace of mind as we open up opportunities tailored to your unique situation. We can help you navigate the waters of a sale, a phased transition, or one of several other approaches. You need someone to watch out for your interests during this critical time, and to lay out the path forward and hold your hand along the way if necessary. SSG would be happy to provide you this valuable service. Regardless of the approach you choose, SSG maintains strategic partnerships with other professionals who can fill out the team by performing business valuations, brokering, accounting, legal analysis and advice.
At Strategies and Solutions Group, we love to help our clients create strategic plans, brainstorm alternative approaches, gain insight into potential and probable outcomes, risks, and opportunities, as well as make decisions on allocating resources to pursue your chosen strategy. We exit this activity with a buy-in across your leadership team on a set of goals, values, or targets, and then we create a roadmap of how to achieve these.
Our facilitated Strategic Planning & Brainstorming sessions create profound changes in our clients, and they're fun. We conduct brainstorming sessions, facilitated sessions designed to optimize group decision making, as well as make use of a variety of analytical tools and techniques to aid us along the way. The result is typically a leadership team in lock-step, working together to achieve their goals; and once your leadership team is in unity, the rest of the company will follow.
Business Growth, Expansion & Acquisition Strategies
Growth strategies can be either organic through product/service line extensions, geographical expansion, increasing sales through providing a better product or service, a more effective marketing campaign, or growth could come inorganically through acquiring or merging with a competitor or complementary provider. Strategies and Solutions Group (SSG) will help you evaluate these alternatives and recommend a course of action that will lead to success. Oftentimes, we will recommend a combined approach along with our "Performance and Profitability Optimization" activity after we have completed a thorough analysis of the business to ensure we understand all of your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. If Mergers or Acquisitions are your preference, SSG maintains strategic partnerships with other professionals who can fill out the team by performing business valuations, brokering, accounting, legal analysis and advice.
