The Owner’s Challenge
Three transformations every business owner must make to join the ranks of the best managed and most profitable companies in business today

  • You must transform yourself from technical expert to master strategist.
  • You must transform yourself from an instinctual decision-maker to a fact-based decision-maker. The key to success in business is to manage by fact rather than expediency:
    • Gather information
    • Weigh the costs and benefits
    • Assess the risk
    • Take action
  • You must transform the business from a partnership model to a functional responsibility decision-making model. The person with functional responsibility must make all the decisions within their area of responsibility. Owners should be involved only when the risks are high.
The Business Analysis:
A Qualitative and Quantitative Review

Business runs on information, regardless of the industry. The quality and timeliness of information assists business owners with critical decisions. In order to make wise and profitable decisions, it is imperative to have a thorough business analysis.

Similar to the general practitioner, a business analyst is trained to perform an exhaustive diagnostic study of the business. The analyst and support team have experience with similar business operations. An in-depth examination is performed including financial, operational and sales functions of the business to provide recommendations for improvement by identifying strengths and deficiencies.

Each EBS/EBA analyst is trained to conduct an extensive, analytical study, addressing the particular conditions, concerns, and procedures of a company.  With discretion & attention-to-detail, EBS works when you work.  It is essential for us to get as clear a picture as possible so that we can ask the right questions.  Our experienced staff is well seasoned in the art of “blending.”  Upon completion of our survey, the analyst provides a confidential review of the findings and conclusions.

Don’t leave increased revenue, reduction of costs or increased bottom line profit to chance.

We provide an objective and comprehensive analysis of the business to give an unbiased view of its strengths and weaknesses. The business analysis takes approximately one to three days. Our target market is businesses that range from $500,000 to hundreds of millions in annual revenue. We have more than 100 analysts with various backgrounds and experience.

The assigned business analyst will perform the work onsite and consult with a survey services director, located at EBS headquarters, who has access to all company resources. The resources include, but are not limited to, business and financial data, comparative business performance benchmarks provided by Dun & Bradstreet and our prior consulting case studies. Furthermore, the headquarter team of survey services directors have an extraordinary range of experience and expertise and are available for collaboration in developing recommendations to address any business problem.

The Consulting Process

Request information on EBS's management consulting services.

As much as the business analyst performs the function of a "general practitioner," the consulting services team is the "specialist" brought in to resolve the issues identified during the course of the analysis.

The consulting services team is comprised of some of the brightest management minds in business. They are familiar with the "psychology of management." All have practical, hands-on business management experience. Nothing is left to theory.

The minimum requirements to qualify for employment as a business consultant is a college degree and 10 years of direct business experience in mid to upper level management positions. A significant number of our consultants have Masters and Doctorate degrees, and numerous professional certifications across multiple industries and disciplines. They are knowledgeable about your industry and possess the skills necessary to assist you in all aspects of your change process.

EBS is considered a "full-service" consulting company -- meaning that we maintain the expertise and diversification necessary to address all aspects of our client's business. This differentiates EBS from most consulting companies, who only maintain the capabilities to address very specific and precise issues or industries. This requires us to maintain a staff of highly "specialized" professionals across a diverse mix of industries and disciplines. We are proud to say, that in the history of EBS, there has never been an issue raised during the course of a client engagement where there wasn't a consultant on staff that didn't have prior experience in dealing with, and resolving, that specific issue.

Prior to the commencement of the consulting engagement, the business analyst determines the time required to accomplish the engagement objectives. The client is responsible for the hourly billing rate and the reasonable travel expenses related to the engagement. If additional time (beyond the hours determined by the business analyst) is required to complete the engagement objectives, EBS will incur the hourly billing charges, not the client.

Since client management is a pro-active part of the development and implementation of our solutions, you are continually apprised of the program's progress. No surprises. Client management fully comprehends the concept and implementation.
