Private Equity Consultancy and Advisory


Management problems in client organizations are the nature and purpose of private equity consulting. Advisors and consultants deliver independent insights; specially trained persons spread value while transferring knowledge. At face value, it sounds opaque, an activity without a defined structure or representative sub-structures. On the contrary, such a principled service provider will develop systems, initiate and evaluate projects, perform technical assistance, and more, all for the client. 

What Is The True Purpose of Private Equity Consultancy and Advisory? 

Management consultants within private equity understand that although they've probably witnessed similar problems in other firms, asymmetric information will always be the client's advantage. It's only proper to use this reservoir of intelligence as a springboard to new opportunities and fresh ways of thinking. That is the true purpose in a nutshell: the creation of a bilateral commission where data effectively flows freely in both directions. By nature, consultants can't know more than the client, nor can they come to any kind of operative plan according to theory.  



What Is Private Equity Consultancy and Advisory? 

Consulting and advisory, being independent services, give managers and organizations the tools they need to be successful without the help of the consultant. That's right. It's a consultant's or advisor's job to make themselves redundant. Certain business systems require ongoing consultation and communication and in those cases, the aforementioned takes exception. Overall, the end result should be the implementation of a sound plan for organizational success...a plan originating from a meeting of the minds. 



Private Equity Consultancy and Achieving Organizational Objectives 

Time horizons may differ on a case-by-case basis. Nevertheless, the consultant's job never changes - provide tangible and measurable answers to critical challenges. Client-based objectives usually fall under the following categories: 



  1. Customer Satisfaction 
  2. Brand Effectiveness 
  3. Business Growth 
  4. Competitive Advantage 
  5. Corporate Excellence 

Whether they want to increase productivity or reorganize sectoral leadership, adding value is always at the forefront of the consultant's mind. Without the central proposition, the premise of private equity consultancy falls apart. 



How Private Equity Consultants and Advisors Solve Problems 

Problem is a great word for the management consultant operating in private equity because an issue, especially one that can be solved through qualified due diligence, justifies the consultant's very existence in their formative capacity. No problem, no need for professional assistance. We're not here to celebrate the fire; we are, however, looking for the smoke.  



It's More About the Purpose and Not the Problem 

That's the problem...too much emphasis on the problem. That sounds counterintuitive, but the opposite is true. Hopefully, that wasn't too confusing?! 



Staying fixated on the problem keeps creative power stuck in a negative feedback loop. Advisors in this situation come to rely on mediocre consulting approaches when the focus should be on a series of purpose-driven missions where the stakes increase the higher you go.  



We aim to bypass corrective measures. Instead of restoring the old paradigm, we go beyond the standard - to new horizons that promise new opportunities and learning experiences.

'Make, Measure, Monitor' With Business Intelligence Systems - Business Intelligence Dashboards

  Business intelligence describes a toolset and process, which systematically organizes and displays your company data. Intelligence systems assist you in making strategic and operative decisions based on detailed analytic data and reports. Implementing a business intelligence solution not only requires programming qualifications but also necessitates a detailed understanding of business processes, business administration, and business economics.  With that being said, in developing your business intelligence solution, you do not have to “start from scratch”, but instead base it on well-established open-source products and adapt it to your specific requirements by adding additional custom components, interfaces, and modules.  Cornerstones of the Development Process:   - Analysis of your company-specific informational requirements.   - Analysis of existing core-data (e.g. in ERP systems and MDM systems).  - Visualisation of processes using flow charts.   - Decision, whether classic met

Managerial Decisions That Add Value and Drive Long-Term Performance

  Many investors cannot accurately define value if put on the spot. Even in an efficient market economy , one would be hard-pressed to find a manager, investor, or consultant who can quickly and succinctly place parameters on what makes a valuable company 'valuable'.   What is evident, however, is the notion that meeting quarterly earnings forecasts and boosting earnings-per-share makes a company 'valuable' or 'successful'. Unfortunately, this is a hamster-wheel-like mentality as accounting earnings measure performance in the short term.    Near-term results delight shareholders and arbitrage strategists only. All stakeholders must be taken into account when investigating total return (a mixture of growth, return on invested capital, market pricing and shareholder return), or the essential value that a company brings to the market.   How Do Companies Create Long-Term, Sustained Value Those looking for a complex explanation will just have to go elsewhere.

Consulting Models and Frameworks: Expert and Process Consulting

  Consultancy reveals itself within the name. The role entails yielding provisions without necessarily commanding the execution; the demarcation line that separates management from the consulting firm. A consultant walks in management's shoes, yet maintains strict impartiality as it doesn't disturb the problem-solving process. When talking about consultancy, 'change' is the operative word. Advisory service providers leave organizations in better shape than before. Just like all roads led to Rome - all roads lead to improved capabilities from the top down even after the consultant departs.   Performance gaps, process failures, and obsolete systems make for great elimination targets. Instead of overt authority or obsessive control, the consultant gathers support and garners commitment for change by following a framework meant to persuade people to take action where they can. They employ two distinct frameworks created to solve organizational deficiencies: expert and proce
