Management Consulting – Growth scenarios

“A business is only worth something if someone wants to buy it.” – On several occasions, emendo has been asked to develop a strategic plan to prepare a company for a better future or a shift in ownership. Our approach is fact based and our team consists of consultants with commercial, financial and technical backgrounds. During the “Observe” phase, we apply our high-performance check list which is a large number of company aspects, we evaluate and compare to our experience of operational excellence. We conclude the “Observe” phase with a wall of facts and continue to the “Think” phase where the customer’s employees are invited to support the analysis and prioritisation of how to design the best possible strategy. In the “Improve” phase, we design the implementation method and typically follow-up in the following years.

Management Consulting – The Gold Plan

A major food company suffered seven years of deficit and emendo was entrusted with the task to support the turnaround. The company management implemented our ideas by the speed of light and within a year they made profit. In the following years, profit grew and the owners decided that it was the right time to cash-in so emendo was contracted to develop the Gold Plan, a plan which would continue the successful growth journey. Once the Gold Plan was approved, the company started executing the actions and a few months later the company was sold. The happy ending of this case is that the new owners asked emendo to refresh and accelerate the strategy 12 months later.
