The B2B CFO GamePlan®

IMMEDIATE NEEDS

Most owners of privately-held companies have immediate needs. These needs are often irritating, distracting and time-consuming to the business owner.

These needs are sometimes related to banking, such as increasing or obtaining a working capital line of credit.

These needs may also relate to important deadlines or other issues if which the owner needs competent external resources to quickly resolve.

Our goal is to help solve these immediate needs for business owners on a cost-effective basis.

Our process to help business owners with immediate needs is to spend about an hour with the owner to chat and to listen about their concerns. The meeting is confidential. The goal is to understand the needs of the owner in order to take the next step.

The next step is to complete The Discovery Analysis™. This is a four-step process, which usually takes about two hours with the company’s staff.

  1. Meet with and interview the company’s staff, which is typically the head of accounting and/or operations.
  2. Look at the company’s financial information and computer systems.
  3. Benchmark the company’s financial information against its industry averages.
  4. Create a confidential report of our key findings.

The next step is to complete The Strategy Session™. This is a four-step process.

  1. Meet with the owner for about 30 minutes to confidentially discuss the key findings from The Discovery Analysis™.
  2. Give the owner a complimentary copy of the industry comparison report.
  3. Review The Strategy Gameplan™.
  4. Discuss a preliminary timeline for The Performance Period™.

The next step is to complete The Performance Period™. This is a three-step process.

  1. Implement the agreed-upon action steps discussed in The Strategy Session™.
  2. Meet regularly with the business owner to discuss progress made.
  3. Meet immediately with the business owner if something important is discovered that was not discussed or known in The Strategy Session™.

The next step is to complete The Assessment Report™. This is a three-step process.

  1. Report the results of the agreed-upon action steps discussed in The Strategy Session™.
  2. Document and discuss any benefits or rewards from the services performed by B2B CFO®.
  3. Begin or continue an ongoing relationship with the owner as a trusted long-term business advisor.

In all that we do we follow The B2B CFO GamePlan® to meet the needs of owners of privately-held companies.
