Assess, Analyse and Advise
At Gateway we are skilled at providing support to companies that may have lost their way a little. Our team of skilled consultants are experienced at helping clients to see the light.
We fully understand that some businesses become so engrossed in running the business, it can be difficult to see the wood from the trees. As a result, some businesses find themselves in difficulty – and when you are in this situation, often the perfect solution is a fresh pair of eyes.
How we work
When working on such projects, we provide all the support and guidance you need.
- Following an initial consultation, we will visit the company and provide a full, detailed and totally frank assessment of the state of the organisation. This investigation can, on occasion, be a lengthy process, depending on the organisation and the issues involved.
- We assess the state of key operational issues and detail all aspects that may require attention. We will look at all or some of the following key areas – marketing, human resources, purchasing, finance and operations.
- We analyse the implications of any current issues – what the likely outcome will be if no changes are made and then in addition, we also provide a detailed plan of what will happen should changes be made.
- We consider all opportunities, and make clear, concise and relevant recommendations. We provide an achievable timeframe for development and provide suggestions in terms of budget and sources of funding (where applicable).
The above points are purely illustrative of a standard strategic assessment, however, there are few cases that are the same. We treat every business on it’s own merits and as ever business is different, so every solution to every problem must also be very individual.
In addition to the main business recommendations, we also provide a full assessment of future training needs. We will also ensure that all recommendations are compliant in meeting regulatory standards – eg. Healthcare Commission, OFSTED, HSE etc.
Rather than simply providing a quick fix, we find that most clients are happier receiving long-term support from us. We can create programmes of continual assessment, regular reviews and performance evaluation that really works – which also offers true value for money.
In addition, we can also create and maintain mentorship and advice / support programmes, all designed to ensure the continued recovery / success of the business.
