OVER twenty five years Jack has worked with hundreds of companies to foster growth and build valuation. Using the tools of strategy, he focuses on technology, operations, marketing, finance and, most importantly, people.
WE ARE experts at strategic planning.
WE WORK WITH YOU and your trusted advisors to increase the value of your business, sometimes in preparation for selling it.
EXTRICATING A COMPANY from a quagmire with a "quick-exit" strategy in whatever form is more costly than practicing an end game strategy, namely, preparing in advance for the next steps of a company's growth. A by-product of planning is increased valuation.
SUCCESS REQUIRES a game plan, practice in advance, the right people to support you, and implementation. The pay-off? A richer life in all ways for yourself, your family, your community - and your clients. The success game plan follows seven steps. They are simple, but not necessarily easy. Let’s work together to create your own strategic plan.
