Our ServicesWhat we have to offer
If you have studied management science at some point in your career, you would have come all sorts of business management frameworks and models – some theoretical and others derived post application. Examples include Six Sigma, Lean and Kaizen. We’ve learned from experience that although individually powerful, not one of these are generally applicable; there is no one-size-fit-all option. You could choose one of these frameworks as a lens through which to describe the nature of Pathscript’s services and you’d probably end up with a fairly good description of how we work. This notion lends itself to the claim that these frameworks share some underlying principles; what exactly they might be is again open for debate.
We have tried to shape our products and services to act on what we think are the said principles, allowing us the flexibility to blend the right combination of management tools for your business.
Business Health Check
First we need a sensor to measure the system – the Business Health Check. With some practice, we have devised a set of indicators and metrics that describe your business over time. It considers aspects such as the size and nature of your investments, your core competencies, potential risks and what plans you have for the future.
What to expect
A team of consultants will conduct a series of discussions and review relevant documents to produce for you a report, the Business Health Check, that details their findings.
how we use this information
From this we derive, perhaps importantly, whether we can actually help. This is an integral part of our work. Should you choose to engage our management consulting services, we first evaluate your company and our ability to help with the Business Health Check. In most cases, meeting the minimum business health requirements is a prerequisite for us to engage with you. Falling below this requirement either means that your business is not suitable for our methods to be productive, or your case is outside our domain of knowledge or capacity.
We can assist you in developing strategies to be incorporated in your business plans. If need be, we can also structure and style the documents for presentation.
What to expect
A team of consultants will conduct a series of discussions, review relevant documents and provide written feedback on the relevant strategies and components of your business plan. As an extension, you can also choose to receive a written and complete business plan.
Ideas Due Diligence
Generating new ideas is necessary if a business needs to grow. Not every idea is great but you need many of them to find one that seems good enough to implement. How do you know which one to pick or whether the one you have picked is, to put it broadly, ‘good enough’?
We have devised 12 components on which business management ideas can be evaluated that guide us through thinking clearly about the relevant implementation requirement and outcomes..
What to expect
