Let's Uncover Opportunities
At some point, all businesses in the LightBLUE marketplace face challenges in their life cycle that prevent them from pressing beyond a particular milestone, event, or initative. LightBlue Worx delivers Business Advisory and Support Services to help companies overcome those challenges with a unique relatability to both the marketplace and to the people that are the lifeblood of those businesses. We combine a unique blend of experience in owning and running businesses in the LightBLUE marketplace, knowledge about the human capital management challenges associated with those business, and an ability to connect with people. The first interaction with clients is an assessment of exactly where the business "is and isn't". Our assessments are designed to reveal areas of concern inside the business that may be either apparent and/or newly revealed during our interaction. Areas of assessment might include:
Human Capital Management:
Workforce Development Staffing/Recruiting/Training Culture
Leadership Development Retention Operations Management
Financial Statement Review Operational Margin Analysis Business Backlog/Pipeline
Cash-flow Management Vendor Management Credit Facilities
Impact on Finance Communication Human Resources
Operational Efficiency Data Analytics
Growth/Scale Sales & Marketing Expansion/Diversification
We can also perform specific assessments of areas of a business that might include:
General Financial Position—Balance Sheet, P&L Analysis, Cash-Flow, Credit Facility Review
Operations Overview—Analysis of operational model, interactoin of employees in various departments.
Leadership/Workforce/HR Assessment— Evaluation of senior leaders in the business to determine focus and influence on current and future operations. Meetings with key personnel. Talent/Skills evaluation. Human Resource Assessment of administrative/documentation, recruiting, training, and employee retention initiatives.
Assessments typically span a 2-5 day time period. In most cases, they lead to an Operational Engagement where our team begins to work inside the business to positively impact the areas identified that need to be addressed.
