Let's talk about pivoting.
Pivots come in all forms, but often they are preceded by crisis. I provide interim operations leadership to get struggling businesses back on track. I specialize in underperforming organizations that need to improve overall efficiency and cash flows. Maybe you’re a young company graduating out of the start up phase and increasing your focus on margins. Maybe you’re a seasoned business that has experienced a significant change in circumstances. Maybe you took a chance on something that didn’t achieve the needed results.
I get it, I’ve been there, and I can help you move forward.
Interim or Fractional COO Services
Translating financial goals in to operating goals can be difficult. We can improve working capital, and cashflows by using lean principles to improve operating efficiency. I evaluate existing processes and find opportunities to improve safety, quality, and productivity. If you’re in a difficult situation, I can provide the help you need to move forward.
Change Management Consulting
Business leaders sometimes need someone to talk with to work out ideas, gain a new perspective, or navigate a challenge. We can leverage my background and your expertise to ensure your vision has a strategy everyone can act on and feel connected to. Change is inevitable, chaos is not.
Supply Chain & Inventory Advisor
Inventory is cash – plain and simple. Inventory carrying costs should be less than 20% to 30% of the value of the inventory, but it could be much higher. I’ve spent most of my career focused in this area. If you sense you’re leaving something on the table, give me a call and let’s make a strategy.
Managing Operational Excellence
Underperforming performing businesses often have trouble executing set plans. Middle management struggles to overcome day-to-day challenges while pivoting to the new strategy. I am particularly skilled in crafting strategies that empower teams to deliver results. If your business is struggling, I can help.
