Business Plan Validation
Too often, company stakeholders are unsure about, or are not completely confident in, the validity of business plans and cash flow projections prepared by management. In this situation, a second, independent, opinion is in order.
Our comprehensive business plan assessments include an on-site visit to your company, a thorough management audit and a review of financial data, policies and procedures. Depending on the issues and findings, the assessment may result in recommendations for cost-cutting, process improvement, personnel realignment, changes in reporting to stakeholders and/or clarification of long-term strategic plans.
