Business planning, change management and succession

We see businesses of all shapes and sizes and are experienced in working with the managers of those businesses to see how their commercial, financial or personal objectives may be achieved.  This requires early access to any proposed plan so that we can assist, for example, in ensuring that issues the client may not have considered are dealt with at an early stage of negotiation. It will also ensure that the elements that go to make up a business plan or material change in the business are drawn together and do not overlap or conflict.

Such planning will often require changes to employee numbers or a need to re-train or re-allocate staff.  These are sensitive issues with which we can help and advise.

Succession planning is also a difficult area to deal with, especially in family owned businesses.  There will never be a standard solution to these matters, but we have a wide range of experience which enables us to suggest solutions which help in avoiding unnecessary problems.
