Excel with a world-class business strategy consulting team

For instance, when a manufacturing operation in Mexico began suffering operating losses after a dozen years of growth, the frustrated manufacturer called on us for help. Our multidisciplinary team of consultants conducted a thorough assessment of the firm’s personnel, systems, technology, policies, procedures, and controls, then developed a business strategy and budget.

In the year following the project’s conclusion, the manufacturer reported a 13 percent profit margin.
