Opal Partners follows a process to ensure we add value to our clients from the very first interaction. Our goal is to add value in every interaction we have.
We know our business is built on mutual trust, so we begin our relationship by learning about our clients’ businesses and challenges. And we let our clients get to know us too – how we operate, our values, and our expertise.
Next, we uncover the future-state goals and current issues the client is facing. This helps us focus our efforts. If needed, we can perform an operations audit to identify the areas we can leverage to have the biggest impact.
Based on our discussions we work closely with the client to scope our work efforts. By understanding our client’s priorities and time frames, we can craft a solution that impacts the business just where it is needed.
After the scope is agreed to, it’s time to begin work. Opal Partners isn’t like some consulting companies that give you a report – we roll up our sleeves and work alongside our clients. We are player/coaches.
As the engagement progresses, we monitor our progress and the results. If we need to pivot to address a new challenge, we do so. Continuous feedback and coaching helps our clients stay focused on their goals.
The Opal Assessment is a guided self-assessment of your operations. In it, we apply the Operations Hierarchy to the seven essential functions common to every business to help you identify the areas that need improvement.
Once identified, we create a plan to drive execution aligned with your strategy.
