The engagement with Profit Growth Consultants typically concludes with a presentation and written report which summarizes the action steps in detail the client should implement to move the needle. We devote a great deal of effort to putting those reports together in such a way that the starting point is clearly defined and presented as such and the recommended implementations are convincingly related to the analysis on which they are based. The mandate can be construed as fulfilled when the profit growth consultant presents a consistent action plan containing a sequence of steps designed to solve the diagnosed issue or improve something that has been working to a certain extent. The Profit Growth Consultant recommends and the entrepreneur implements.
The Profit Growth Consultant’s role regarding implementation of his own advice is subject to a remarkable discussion in the consulting industry. One could claim that a consultant who assists to implement his own recommendations takes on a much wider responsability that exceeds the one of a profit growth consultant and might even be at risk of conflict of interest. Others reckon that not helping with putting everything into effect can only be construed as non-professional because the risk of missing out on potential realistic additional profits comes close to 100% if the recommendations are not or badly implemented as they normally should be. Besides there are workarounds for the consultant without having to take on the manager's job in charge of implementation, e.g. outsourcing to an independent specialist or freelancer who just gets these things done and implemented.
Profit Growth Does Not Happen Without Investing First
Most initiatives for new growth never manifest in their intended results, simply because the company is not ready to execute them effectively. The only way to overcome this situation is to develop a doable action plan, assess it against the current data given, and then implement and align everything in terms of sales process, leadership, communication, marketing, order processing, customer experience and so on so that the target can actually be reached.
Unique Behavior Based Distinction As The Key To Supercharging Your Profit Growth
We as Profit Growth Consultants like to leave behind something sustainable ready for all times to come. This means not only enhancing clients’ ability to scale a dialed in and optimized process but also helping them learn organizing principles required to cope with future challenges.
The Lazy Way To Profit Growth Without Overwhelm
How the culture inside your business can make or brake it:
Company culture plays a major role in the daily reality for employees. What is the atmosphere at work? Is it friendly, aligned and cohesive or toxic and cutthroat? Are your coworkers stressed out, lazy, intriguing, boring, or target driven, collaborative and in the flow, do they enjoy what they do, and are they happy to give it all?
Selling universal effectiveness is part of each step. Whilst taking note of a client’s worries about one department, the Profit Growth Consultant ought to relate them to what’s happening at other places in the company. While focussing on daily matters, he or she has to additionally think about potential future issues. When "downloading" managers’ concerns why profit growth is tough to achieve, the Profit Growth Consultant should also be vigilant for obstacles that may occur throughout the consulting process. Like this the profit growth expert contributes to average effectiveness through addressing instantaneous issues with sensitivity within the bigger picture and context. Entrepreneurs should not conclude that the Profit Growth Consultant is just after maximising his own profits by raising wider/more open questions. The Profit Growth Consultant is in charge to moderate and lead the entrepreneur through this journey so that targets will be met, no matter how. By interacting with the entrepreneur he/she has the chance to finally speak out those things that have been looping around in his/her brain for so long without any solutions so far. This is the pattern the Profit Growth Consultant has to break.
Unique Behavior Based Distinction As The Key To Supercharging Your Profit Growth
Management Consulting is in the mature stage in terms of life cycle. Instead of developing new services the main key players focus on efficiency improvement. Technological change contributes to that.
The first step for any Profit Growth Consultant is the fact finding phase, where the objective is to learn the client's business and the target of the mandate. A good Profit Growth Consultant takes the time to gather as much information from the owner and employees as he can about the business. This can include looking into existing systems including but not limited to sales pipeline and accounting, touring the facility, talking to managers and staff, analyzing the finances and operations. During this process, the Profit Growth Consultant will detect the essentials of a company's mission and what procedures and processes are in place.
Sometimes successful implementation requires not only new marketing funnels and advertising techniques and methods but also different attitudes regarding the entire customer acquisition process (CAP), customer experience management, functions or even changes in the sales process, e.g. how the sales funnel is built and sales conversions processed. The term process effectiveness is used to imply the ability to optimize campaigns and scale until customer behavior and/or environmental change requires to re-launch and repeat optimization and scaling.
How Using KPIs Could Triple Your Profit Growth
Typically entrepreneurs tend to give Profit Growth Consultants complex issues to find solutions for. For example, a client might wish to find the answer to the question looping in his head whether or not to invest into a new component, enter a joint venture, implement or build a new sales funnel or add further marketing channels. Or the business owner may ask how to restructure procedures and organizing principles so that change management becomes more agile in challenging times and changing environments with new rules, or which traffic sources to adopt in advertising; or what the most practical solution exists for an issue like high cart abandonement, high bounce rates on websites or landing pages, low customer retention, stagnation in lifetime customer value, low email open rates or whatever.
Any engagement’s usefulness to a business depends on the degree to which managers agree upon the nature and character of the issues and possible solutions. Without it there won't be neither any acceptance of the diagnostics nor implementation of the recommendations nor the willingness to share essential data with the Profit Growth Consultant. Our Profit Growth Consultants not only deliver sound and convincing action steps, they are also persuasive, have good people skills and excellent analytic skills. Furthermore our consultants are trained to design and conduct a process that results in an agreement which steps are essential for profit growth and to establish the momentum in the company to follow through with execution and implementation.
When the entrepreneur participates in the diagnostic process - we call it "download", they are more likely to acknowledge their responsiblity in issues and to accept a revision of the Profit Growth Consultant’s task. Therefore top profit growth consulting firms tend to establish such procedures as joint consultant-client task forces to evaluate the data and other moving parts of the download (diagnosis). As the diagnostic process evolves, business owners naturally start implementing necessary acion-steps without even waiting for the formal list of recommendations.
Behavioral changes can best be achieved when integrated with more traditional approaches. And consulting clients have a right to expect from all profit growth consultants, whatever their field of expertise might be, that they are sensitive to human interactions and relationships and skilled in improving the company's ability to solve future as well as present issues.
How To Convert Business Growth Into Profit Growth
For a Profit Growth Consultant being effective means convincing an entrepreneur to implement the recommendations instead of just staring at it. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Not only the business owner himself but also his staff needs to be on the same page so that all forces join to impleent and make the needle move. To achieve that, the consultant has to be very skilled not only in analysing the situation but equally important in communicating the prescription. On top of that all key players must be on board, each with his/her share in the solution, so that the target will be hit. The Profit Growth Consultant has to have an organizing principle in place himself through which he can identify whom to include in the consulting process and how to spark his interest.
