We are business generalists who have been in the trenches. We have built companies that were wildly successful, and some that were not so much. We know what works and what doesn’t. Our footprints are all over the Inc. 500 list. In short, we’ve been there and done that.
Companies, over time, develop bad habits and myopia that become obstacles to profitable growth. Unless exposed and eradicated, these obstacles invariably lead to misguided decisions and poor execution. The end result? Stagnant revenues, bloated costs, customer attrition, crippling debt.
BCG helps you get to the root cause of these problems and fix them, for good. In the process, we teach you decision-making discipline to prevent bad habits from creeping back in. We evaluate your operations and help you design processes that increase throughput while reducing costs. And we implement tools to ensure your company executes with uncompromising focus.
Our engagements begin with a 3-6 month intensive immersion in your company to understand your processes and systems. Then, together, we define the goals your company can and should achieve over the next few years. We work closely with your management team for the next 6-12 months to instill decision-making discipline, redesign processes, and build feedback and control systems.
The next phase involves ongoing and regular monitoring and mentoring to help you stay on track until you don’t need us anymore. Our unique success-based compensation formula aligns our interests perfectly with yours. Our profit is deferred and entirely at risk. If we don’t help you achieve profitable growth, we don’t get paid.
The problem child. Everybody has one. Maybe you have more than one. You spend 80% of your time on the 20% of your portfolio that is underperforming.
What if you could spend more time on the 20% that are your superstars? Or, better yet, what if you could spend that time with the middle 60% and help them become superstars too? That would be awesome, wouldn’t it?
But how can you do that without throwing your laggards to the wolves? Take a haircut and dump them in a fire sale? Hire more fresh-faced bodies and throw them at the problem? Yuck, right?
Be honest. Is your company where you think it should be? Are you firing on all cylinders, or should you be doing better? Thought so.
What’s the real problem? Lack of sales? Bloated cost structure? Waning productivity? Crippling debt?
You can probably answer yes to more than one symptom. That’s exactly what they are – symptoms. But do you truly know the real problem? If you did you would have fixed it by now, right?
That’s where we come in. BCG has a proven process for eliminating the real roadblocks to operational excellence and profitable growth. And here’s the kicker – we will have skin in the game so our interests are aligned perfectly with yours. Our unique compensation model is contingent on your company’s success.
