While Strategic Orientation will customize our services to meet your needs we bring specific expertise in:
- Strategic Planning
- Business Plans and Management
- Financial Plans, Analysis, and Reporting
Typically, these are aligned with the following specialized areas.
Strategic & Business Planning
Business success requires both Long-term and Short-term planning. Developing a Strategic Plan to guide your business through the next 3 – 5 years is key to long-term success. It helps you maintain focus and provides identifiable waypoints to monitor progress or implement course corrections.
In addition, the utilization of an annual Business Plan ensures that you reach short-term organizational performance objectives by driving growth, profitability, and efficiency.
Finance & Capital Management
Tight Cash Flow challenging your day to day operations? Investment or Growth Capital falling short of your needs to achieve key objectives? Engage Richard to work with you on developing and implementing the right cash and capital management plan for your company. Having the right plan alleviates financial stress and allows you to focus on the achievement of your goals.
Banking Practices & Relationship Management
Banking relationships can dramatically impact your ability to react to the changing financial needs of your company. With 35 years of experience in commercial banking, from main street to the C-suite, Richard will work with you to establish the right banking relationship structure that enables you to access capital as you need it, maximize your return on operating cash, and pro-actively manage the banking partnership.
One of the most common reasons businesses fail or experience negative impacts to operations is inappropriate or ineffective Risk Management strategies. Richard’s proven system, developed and applied over 35 years in commercial banking, will allow you to identify, assess, and mitigate the known and unknown risks to your business performance or it’s very existence.
Sales, Operations, and Administration all need to function efficiently for you to maximize the performance of your business. When these areas are operating at inefficient levels, they become less than effective and draw upon the limited resources of the organization. Make sure all areas of your business are focused on efficiency and effectiveness to capitalize on everyone’s efforts and accelerate your success.
Team Leadership & Growth Strategies
When your company has high growth objectives, utilizing teams to orchestrate the initiatives accelerates progress towards your goal. To maximize the benefits of organizational growth you must have well developed strategies and goals, coupled with effectively executed tactical plans. Team effectiveness can be a great contributor to achieving these goals sooner. That effectiveness is based in the quality of Team Leadership. Richard not only works with you to ensure you have well developed Growth Strategies and Goals but brings proven coaching and training to team leaders and members that greatly enhances their effectiveness.
