Professional consulting in Mississauga, ON: The path toward a more efficient, profitable business
An “efficient” runner performs well without expending unnecessary effort. Likewise, an efficient machine produces maximum “output” (or goods) with minimal “input” (or resources such as energy and labour). So, a business that operates in an efficient manner uses the smallest amount of inputs or resources to make the biggest splash in terms of outputs or indicators of performance, such as revenue and profit.
Effective professional business consulting elevates your organisation’s efficiency. Miranda Professional Corporation in Mississauga, ON takes an objective, comprehensive look at all the inputs and the outputs that ultimately render a business highly efficient or inefficient. Generally, the goal is to minimise inputs and, in turn, time and costs, while optimising outputs or the return on the inputs that are invested into respective business functions or areas.
For more than 30 years, our team has helped to power the growth of client-businesses of various sizes and in varied industries. We have done so by identifying inefficient processes and areas of the business. Such guidance is then used by the leadership team to design intentional strategies that garner efficiencies and reduce waste. These organisations, no longer hobbled by overwrought systems or processes, are free to grow to new heights and to put the savings that results from our insights toward value-added resources, which propel further growth well into the future.
We start with a wide-ranging, holistic assessment of your company’s operations. Depending on the statistical, historical patterns that emerge from that assessment, we may identify, for instance, the following as areas for potential improvement:
- Automation opportunities – As a firm, we understand the tremendous difference software can make in the ability to reduce organizational headaches, and the time and effort that is allocated toward routine or rote tasks. It is critical to use your top talent wisely; toward those valuable tasks that directly grow your business.
- Deployment of talent – Speaking of “talent,” you may be confident that each employee is on the right “bus” (your business). However, you may need to take a hard look at if each associate is sitting in the right “seat.” You may find that some employees are better suited to other tasks. Additionally, by taking another look at your people, you may identify specific training and development needs.
- “Legacy” resources – Old equipment can put a stranglehold on your ability to increase production or to meet promised turnaround times. In fact, you may find that it is taking more and more “input” for you to produce less and less “output.” In addition to assessing the health of your machinery or tools, our services and partnerships afford the opportunity to look at your vendors. You may find out that you have been overpaying for certain services, for instance, because those payments may have been allowed to go on “auto-pilot.”
“We’ve always done it this way” is not a sufficient reason to maintain the status quo. Contact MPC to schedule a consultation, the first step toward creating a dynamic business model that makes a real difference in your organisation.Back to Business Planning and Consulting Page
