Gap Analysis & Assessment Services

Gap analysis and assessment get you where you want to go

Great business ideas often encounter roadblocks on the way to realization. Knowing where you want to go is only part of the challenge. You need a deliberate and detailed plan to bridge the difference between where you are and where you want to be.

A gap analysis and assessment can help eliminate these roadblocks by comparing actual performance to potential performance. We have provided gap analysis services for clients in almost every industry and can draw on our experience to help you achieve your goals.

Gap Analysis Services

When conducting a gap analysis, Plante Moran will conduct a thorough review of your business processes. We will:

  • Interview managers and process owners
  • Review policies and procedures
  • Recommend enhancement solutions
  • Present our findings to you in a formal report

Our objective is to provide you with the knowledge needed to ensure your business processes go well beyond internal control effectiveness.

Our methodology and technology have been proven effective in assessing the following:

  • Corporate governance
  • Internal audit function
  • Operational efficiency
  • Financial reporting

We can help you achieve a flexible, proactive stance that will include documented corporate governance principles, charter statements, codes of conduct, limited conflicts of interest, ethics hotline, effective committees, efficient audit practices, and robust preventative controls.

“Plante & Moran has assisted us with a multitude of services, from auditing to manufacturing consulting to strategic planning to family and estate planning. Regardless of our needs, they bring a level of intelligence to every situation; they’re consummate professionals.

In the role of manufacturing consulting, they’ve served as consultants to our board of directors. In addition, we’ve participated in several benchmarking studies conducted by both Plante & Moran and the Precision Metalforming Association; those studies have been extremely helpful, not only in terms of benchmarking the Su-Dan Company but also in helping us fulfill our QS and TS certification requirements.”
