Advice & Strategy
The Skillman Group provides the outlet to let you look at your business with a fresh set of eyes. Even in our firm we need to talk to outside consultants to help us look at what we are doing. Our experience with a broad variety of businesses and industries gives us a valuable perspective not available to most entrepreneurs.
We look at all aspects with the end goal of helping achieve your objectives. That might be increasing profits, working less, aggressive growth, buying or selling a business, developing a succession plan, creating corporate goals or setting compensation plans. Sometimes to get to the right answer you need to not just look at the financial pieces, but also the emotional impact.

One of the biggest challenges in any business is getting objective feedback. Most support teams are reluctant to point management flaws out. In addition, your management team may be personally impacted by potential changes. For example, if benefit costs are rising, will you receive a positive reaction to reducing benefits and/or increasing the employee cost of those benefits? That’s doubtful. What if the issues were larger? Layoffs may be needed. Relocating the business to a different state may be a consideration. Or, what if you needed to prepare the business to get it ready to sell? What if your management team is part of the problem? You can freely talk with and plan with us.
