Are you

We help small and midsize businesses be more productive, efficient, and profitable.

Stanford Management Consulting focuses on business and operational strategy in each of the business life stages. As your business grows and develops, so do your goals, objectives, priorities and strategies for future growth.

Not all businesses will proceed through each stage, some will sail right through while others lag, or some may skip stages through rapid growth or failure. At minimum most will follow a path that looks very similar to the text book definition of the business life cycle. Our programs and services were developed to meet the needs of our small business clients in each stage of their business.

 

What stage are you in?

Development/Startup

You are beginning the business life-cycle the minute your idea becomes something you begin to think about! You have an idea – you are ready to jump in full steam ahead!

Established/Growth

I’m finally beyond the startup stage. What’s next? It’s natural to change direction or modify strategies in response to new opportunities or shifting consumer needs.

Mature/Exit

Now you get to make another life decision – continue, sell, or transition into retirement. There are so many options for exiting a business.

The most successful business owners will recognize each stage and at minimum take the planned steps for growth and / or expansion. Our management consulting services focus on our clients’ most critical issues, challenges, and opportunities: strategy, marketing, organization, operations, and advanced analytics across all industries. No matter how complex your business questions, we have the capabilities and experience to deliver the answers you need to move forward.
