Peter and Mary were pleased with their recent purchase of a small manufacturing business. They knew the market, had done their homework before deciding on the purchase, and did well in the negotiations. Reality was now setting in – the multi-million dollar price tag they paid meant that they really had to kick things up several notches to make this ‘deal’ work.
They had seen substantial value and future potential in the business before buying, but now needed a plan and a disciplined process to grow the business and get results quickly. The management team of three was experienced and reasonably skilled, but it was clear that the previous owners had not fully engaged them in leading the business, nor were they aligned on where the business was going. Peter and Mary wanted to leverage the team’s knowledge and experience to create clear direction and focus for the business while increasing each manager’s sense of ownership, autonomy, and pride in their work and the business. They were also looking for outside business perspective, industry experience and contacts, and mentoring.
