Private Equity Sectors
Ability to deploy to portfolio companies of any size
With extensive experience throughout Manufacturing, Energy and Chemicals, we work with clients on operational improvement programs that quickly drive benefits and improve the overall value of the portfolio company. Our flexible working model allows us to work with companies from $20M in revenue up to $2+B.
Operational Due Diligence
Using our vast operational experience, we help Private Equity firms understand the overall state of operational performance at a potential acquisition target and whether or not any “red flags” exist that they need to be aware of before initiating a transaction. We provide a high-level overview of the operational maturity and capabilities of the target company based upon data analysis, observations, and interviews. We can respond rapidly to tight timeframes. Typically, we can complete our assessment in less than a week.
Execute change programs
Our value of Collaboration makes us an ideal partner for Private Equity firms and their portfolio companies’ leadership teams. With the tools and experience, we work shoulder-to-shoulder with the portfolio company leadership to drive rapid and sustainable performance improvement. We are adept at helping clients rapidly execute change programs that deliver financial and operational performance improvement.
We believe in the apprentice model
– authentic learning comes from a combination of close observation of skilled business practices in action, interspersed with guided repetition until skills are transferred and required outputs routinely generated. Ultimately, we’re not here to give our clients a report of what they can do better; we are here to work with them at all levels of the organization to ensure sustainability.
The foundation of sustainable change is built on four categories of capabilities: People, Process, Systems & Technology
Strategy, People & Organization
Management Operating Systems
Positive improvements can be made in any of these areas in isolation, but the most powerful results are executed through an integrated approach.
All Engagements are Fixed-Fee
Our professional fees are based upon the scope of work and the resources required to deliver it. There are no “hidden fees” or surprises that can arise from typical “time and materials” arrangements. We also don’t engage in “value-based pricing,” where fees are a percentage of savings.
