Organisational Development

Get in shape to grow or sell

Working with ambitious SMEs, our clients are constantly looking to grow their businesses to create sustainable value which will ultimately deliver a substantial return on investment. While most businesses will have a business plan or high level strategy, there is rarely a plan for how the organisation will need to develop to deliver it. This is where we can help.

Situational assessment

We work with clients to carry out a comprehensive organisational review, evaluating the effectiveness of the current modus operandi of the organisation while assessing the skills and qualities of the senior and middle management teams. We do this within the context of the business plan, company objectives, current structure and organisational culture. It is this situational assessment that makes our approach different and so effective.

Meaningful and actionable output

The objectivity and clarity of our review provides the catalyst for injecting pace and momentum into decision-making. We develop a clear roadmap with the business to help it achieve its growth plans, working closely with the senior team to provide the necessary support required during the implementation phase. This can include managing recruitment, developing people processes, focusing on skills or leadership development and even restructuring. Our experience across all these areas ensures our plans are practical and achievable and make an immediate and tangible impact

Organisational Due Diligence for Private Equity

This process can also be applied in an investment context pre-transaction and forms what we call Organisational Due Diligence. It is not old school ‘Management DD’ as it delivers actionable insight for investors and investees which helps the business develop and deliver on its objectives post deal.
