Whether you have problems that need fixing, want to know if your company can manage growth or need to verify that you are spending your money wisely, a thorough business analysis by an outside consultant can identify waste, risks and untapped potential, and save your company thousands, and even millions, of dollars.

We require that our business analysts have been business owners themselves. This depth of knowledge when applied from an outsider’s perspective becomes the most useful tool available for planning and managing the direction of your company. A thorough analysis includes:

  • Reviewing all business operations
  • Analyzing the market and the industry
  • Detecting and quantifying risk
  • Identifying the systems, processes and resources that will be impacted by change
  • Recommending resources for both immediate and long-term support
  • Identifying organizational goals necessary for market success
  • Planning contingencies

We know that cash flow is the number one priority for all businesses. We keep that in mind through every element of our business analysis, including our pricing.

Effecting transformative change in your organization may be one of your biggest obstacles to success. You may be surprised at how easy it is to implement change when limited by time or resources.

Dayo Consulting can help you identify, motivate and manage change anywhere in your company. All change efforts come down to the same mission: Can you get people to start doing their jobs differently?

With our change management services, our consultants will help you identify opportunities for change and create plans that will not only address how to make change happen but also how to inspire acceptance of change within your workforce. We do this by:

  • Evaluating company strategy and goals to determine where change is necessary
  • Considering change at every level - individual, organizational and societal
  • Providing tools for employees to better deal with change
  • Looking for patterns that are unique to your organization, so that change is easier to implement in the future.

Most companies operate on an evolutionary timeline. Change is slow, and often drives your organization in the wrong direction. Long-lasting and meaningful change within your company requires a system in place to support it. That means showing employees how to look at their work differently and giving them permission to affect it.

Projects are usually started with a plan, a budget and a deadline. Implementing a project on time and within budget is just 10% of the task. Creating and following a framework that maximizes its chance for success, minimizes the risk of failure and delays, and gathers the support of employees who will take over the work, often requires the focus of a project manager from outside your company.

A project manager has to be a motivator, teacher, negotiator, communicator, psychologist and cheerleader. Most small companies do not have this resource in-house.

That is where Dayo Consulting can help. Our consultants consider all project influences, regardless of source or politics, and avoid the painful blind spots that are inherent in complex plans. Our contribution can benefit in many ways.

  • Provide subject matter expertise
  • Connect project outcome with company goals
  • Deliver the project on time and within budget Identify measurable results
  • Motivate team members to get behind the goals
  • Provide employees the opportunity to demonstrate their skills
  • Strengthen support for the program where needed

Dayo Consulting can provide the outside view to help your company script the critical moves and create the solutions that are the purpose of the project in the first place.

Business success is a moving target. One of the most difficult tasks for developing a business plan is trying to predict the future. While many companies operate without a business plan, if you are looking for investors or venture capital, a solid business plan with a defensible growth strategy is essential.

Business plans no longer follow a standard format. There are fundamental elements required for every business plan, but they can take a different shape depending on their purpose, your market and even your competition. In addition to drafting your business plan, Dayo Consulting can:

  • Evaluate the business environment to determine areas of emphasis
  • Provide funding recommendations
  • Collect marketplace data
  • Perform independent financial analyses
  • Assess the competition

Our consultants will always emphasize taking action versus over- planning. Still, you do need to think through where you want to go and how you’re going to get there.
