services overview

Pivotal Strategies is a solutions and results-oriented firm focusing on issues and challenges faced by companies in various states of transition.  The majority of our engagements are comprised of working with distressed companies and emerging growth businesses.  However, the same skill sets and experience that provide value for these clients also assist companies in other states of transition that require major strategic and operational shifts, as well as businesses confronted with management and ownership succession issues.

our service approach

Typically, our engagements consist of three phases:

·   Assessment:  We work with management to quickly understand the key external and internal drivers of their businesses and the cause and effect relationships of challenges and issues with which they are faced.

·   Initiative Planning:  We develop one or more sets of initiative plans and test their validity and practicality with management, ownership and other relevant constituents.  If obstacles are identified, we reiterate our planning to mitigate or bypass them until we have a realistic and achievable set of initiatives.

·   Execution:  We guide our clients' management teams in channeling the proper resources for effective execution of the initiatives.  We monitor performance, adjust if and when necessary, maintain communications with all stakeholders, and instill the sense of urgency and persistence to see the engagement through to a successful conclusion.
