MLC works with both executive and functional teams within your organization to bring clarity to the management and business issues you face.

II. Planning for the Day-to-Day:

How well an organization manages itself on a daily basis can be a huge competitive differentiator. You have to effectively use your “people, process, and place” to efficiently implement strategic and tactical plans. This is the only way to respond quickly and effectively when your competitive environment changes, and is critical for short and long-term success. Our management consulting services bring clarity to running your day-to-day business.

We specialize in delivering world-class facilitation services for your executive team to develop an innovative and nimble strategic plan. We leverage your time by providing the Strategic Link – allowing you to think and act strategically without ignoring the important work of running your day-to-day business.

Our proprietary VSE Process helps:

  • Uncover missing and innovative information about your company

  • Define and state the problems and issues you are facing
  • Brainstorm new ideas and solutions to current challenges you face
  • Develop and prioritize important initiatives
  • Determine the strategies that will be most successful for your organization given its size, management style and culture

Using our VSE Process, we assimilate this data into a “living tactical plan” by breaking it down into specific and measurable short term actions and then provide accountability and change management for the team as the year progresses – making sure that results are measured and you deliver on your execution plan.
