Performance improvement

Profit declines occur in the course of any business, but a steady loss indicates a more structural problem. Failure to find and reverse the source of a decline can lead to the loss of control and demanding stakeholder pressure.

External factors such as an economic downturn or major industry shift can hurt a company’s finances. One of the greatest threats to long-term success is when companies are not vigilant enough about responding to the changes in their market – whether it is by failing to spot product or channel fatigue, acknowledge new competition, make necessary updates to products or marketing adjustments in a timely fashion. Management needs to focus on controllable, internal factors to stop profit declines.

ACE helps with complex Strategic, Operational and Financial dilemmas that seem impossible to resolve. We are ready to assist and set a clear perspective on all available scenarios. Our experience, leadership and thinking power is at your disposal to help make a sensible decision that will set you on a firm path to success.

Getting back on track

Certain situations need temporary and specific skills to maneuver through unknown terrain.

A common example is a failed post-merger integration or an acquisition where performance goals are not met. Or an organization can lose a key leader for any number of reasons.

During times of transition and uncertainty, we serve as interim leaders, providing stability, necessary guidance and direction. We step in to bridge the gap until the (new) leadership team is ready to take over. We identify root causes and quickly implement the necessary corrective action. Our team also has the experience, know-how and tools to lead you through the extensive transformation that results from an ownership change, divestiture or merger.

We accelerate to achieve positive change. We deploy a disciplined approach to interim management that enables us to positively effect cultural change and align conflicting interests. By understanding your objectives and key drivers, we can prioritize actions, implement effective processes and facilitate buy-in across the organization. At the end of the transition phase, the management team will be stronger, more cohesive and steady on the path to success.
