The Story

It started looking back at our careers noticing that we have grown, turned around and saved so many companies and secured so many jobs, that we realized this was something special! We experienced so few people that could actually ‘walk the talk’ and not leave the client with a pile of studies and analysis only that we decided more companies could use our help.

About Us

Nothing is more rewarding than securing the future for companies that temporarily struggle with challenges. We help getting back on track, improving and/or turn around performances. As we have seen our share of consultants we want to do differently. We commit to bringing more value than costs and actually implement and deliver the results!

Value Proposition

1 We deliver more than we cost!
Easier said than done but this is set as a qualifier in the Needs Assessment.

2 We relieve you from your immediate challenges in 90 days!
The nxt90days program will generate results. But also set the structure for the future. We are in for 90 days, leaving the new way of work to the existing management team.

We focus on high impact projects!
No need for a full program but you urgently want help on a high impact project delivering immediate return using the tooling of nxt90day modules.

The nxt90days Program

We described the common factors in all projects we have been doing in the past and developed specific tooling. The Needs Assessment is our central point of departure. It qualifies the project and takes us to the six strategic  drivers  of your organization. Touching these will enable us to improve cash and profit.

The nxt90days Modules

The six modules will be run within the first 6 weeks of the 90 days program. Exactly, we are halfway the project and we need to finalize and propose the business plan. We have been implementing along the way in parallel with our findings. That makes it possible to capture results in the last 4 weeks and onwards.

Our Commitment

Before we even start, we qualify the project for success. This means we want to be sure to deliver the expected and required outcome. Based upon the company information and our projections, we set a baseline of cash and profit. Together we set goals for improvement. The nxt90days sharing scheme commits us to share if we over- or undershoot.


Why you would hire us!

We optimise your organisation and re-think business models. We leverage internal efficiencies and increase effectiveness to the market: leading to better margins and cash position.

Basically, we shift gear in your organisation, speeding up improvements and stopping actions that do not move the needle.

We do this with a full 90 days program or on a specific high impact project, full-time or part-time. We work collaboratively with your team, leaving them with a process and structure for the future.
