It’s said that up to 60% of business strategies fail. Most often, the strategy is not the problem – it’s the execution. Working with hundreds of businesses around the globe, our Senior Partners have seen incredible initiatives fail due to a company’s lack of implementation. To correct this common challenge, GrowthSmart Consulting is focused on not only assisting in the development of effective strategies, but also in supporting a systematized, disciplined approach to ensure the strategy will succeed long-term.
To ensure that your strategic goals are efficiently, effectively and successfully implemented, GrowthSmart has created various flexible options including coaching, training, and consulting. This approach allows your company to choose the option that is best suited to your team, budget, and timelines.
Our velocity options allow your team to pace slowly and steadily toward their goals to include monthly accountability coaching and key performance reviews to more aggressive, full-service consulting that moves full speed ahead through deployment. GrowthSmart’s packages are completely customizable to your business needs. Through the assessment process, our partners work with leaders in your company to determine what solution is best for you.
For companies who have staffing gaps or need to move faster, consulting support options provide your company with extensive support from our team of strategists, writers, graphic designers, coordinators, and technical specialists. Consulting arrangements free your team up to focus on high-level activities while our team provides the heavy lifting – teaching your team how to execute, deploy, and manage strategies along the way.
For teams that want the benefit of moving quickly with less disruption of existing business and resource strain, consulting arrangements provide a more robust level of service. Foundational Consulting specifically addresses the assessment and strategic planning process by utilizing strategic planning efforts and phased strategic plans. Focusing on one-three strategies at a time, this approach is designed to disrupt your business less and build a stronger foundation for growth.
The cost of hiring additional experts in-house to manage strategies in sales, marketing, technology implementation, and training can not only cost millions of dollars annually, but can require longer periods of adjustment before deployment of new strategies. Consulting allows you to deploy strategies faster with experts while filling staffing gaps at a substantially lower cost. This approach means that your company’s strategies get executed, your key performance indicators are set, and processes are developed for in-house personnel to work with.
ADDRESSING SPECIFIC BUSINESS CHALLENGES - ONE PHASE AT A TIME
Foundational Consulting allows your company to execute and deploy strategies faster than coaching programs by utilizing expert consulting resources including consultants, trainers, technology experts, project managers, coordinators, communication specialists, and branding specialists. Your leadership team and other champions of the project will be supplemented by an entire support staff to create systems, processes, strategies, and tools to deploy a long-term phased plan over six to eighteen months. This approach can be less stressful on your staff and resources throughout the process of positioning for growth, sustainability, and profitability.
Unlike Transformational Consulting that addresses multiple strategies to transform your business, Foundational Consulting moves slower to focus on core foundational issues and growth strategies. This phased strategy tackles specific issues one step at a time fueling slower and more predictable change processes through a collaboration between your internal company expertise and our consulting resources. Phases of thirty to ninety days allow for faster movement through a phased plan than coaching with the same precise focus on limited strategies at any one time.
HYBRID COACHING & CONSULTING
Not all companies have the support staff and in-house expertise to execute the strategies developed during the strategic planning or assessment process. Even effective strategies can fail due to a lack of execution or measurement. To ensure that your strategies get executed efficiently, effectively and successfully, GrowthSmart has created various flexible options including coaching, training, and consulting time. These arrangements are by far the most popular choice for many companies as it provides faster results with less strain and disruption of your existing business.
Packages that combine coaching and consulting are tailored to your company’s gaps and needs. These packages often address multiple strategies at once including sales, marketing, operations, and process development. Based on assessments and phased execution recommendations, GrowthSmart Consulting deploys a team that includes coaches and support staff to provide assistance in creating templates, tools, and resources for deployment. Then, our team supports your business in strategic execution working with your company’s managers and staff members to collaborate on effective solutions and resources.
