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.

Featured Capabilities

The foundation of sustainable change is built on four categories of capabilities: People, Process, Systems & Technology

Strategy, People & Organization

We ensure our clients have the correct org structure to achieve the agreed strategy. Then we ensure the right people are in the right roles and leaders are trained on the expectations and behaviors of effective leadership.

Operational Excellence

Improve maintenance efficiency, asset reliability, production optimization and quality results by implementing Opex processes and behaviors. By collaborating with local companies, improvements, including Preventive Maintenance effectiveness and Production control parameters, are designed and implemented.

Implement S&OP improvements to optimize inventory levels, enhance communications across functions and maximize customer satisfaction. We ensure the correct information feeds into the S&OP process and all the right decision makers are involved at the correct times.

Management Operating Systems

Install a system of KPIs that ensure the right information to run the business is reviewed by the right people at the right frequency. Often this includes “visual factory” tools to highlight performance on a real-time basis.

Positive improvements can be made in any of these areas in isolation, but the most powerful results are executed through an integrated approach.

Fee Structure

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.
