Some of the areas in which we contribute to your success are:

 Business Evolution Support

For the Start-up Company

Our client’s typical roadblocks result from lack of business experience and/or not defining and following a clear strategic plan. Research Triangle Business Advisors will help you build or tune your business plan so that it follows the vision of the founder, focuses management on profitability and presents your business in a way to raise capital. After helping create this sound base, we stay involved and work with you to effectively manage your company to success by dealing with the day-to-day issues and decisions you face. These key issues and decision are usually in the areas of planning, process, funding, sales, marketing, financial model, staffing, and general management.

 For the Growth Company

Research Triangle Business Advisors specializes in bringing wisdom and experience to companies in transition or planning for transition. Typical business evolution includes changes in ownership or leadership, geographic expansion, rapid or stalled growth, significant shifts in strategic direction, change in key products or services, organizational changes, and or scaling to the next business level. Our approach is to focus on the fundamental needs and goals of businesses and executives, by defining core issues, generating strategic and practical solutions, and overcoming roadblocks created by the challenges of normal business change.


Marketing Strategy

The essence of strategy is focus. By choosing the right consumer targets, the right brand positioning and the right product initiatives, you can align resources with the most profitable opportunities to drive growth and sustain competitive advantage.

Research Triangle Business Advisors enables clients to align their core value propositions and supporting messages with the underlying needs of key buyers. As a result, our clients differentiate their brands, enable stronger relationships, and break through the competitive landscape. To achieve this unique status we help our clients identify key prospective clients and their needs, define the brand architecture, create value propositions, develop product innovation programs that expand brand relevance and impact, create effective brand communications and implement marketing programs.


  Sales Strategy, Process & Management

Many executives don’t realize that successful sales organizations are a result of effectively defining and managing many components: Sales strategy, process, compensation, tracking & measurement tools, training, lead generation, communication, motivation, and collateral. Even the best products or services can fail if this part of the company is improperly defined or poorly executed. The result – failure to achieve the revenue goals of the company. We help clients evaluate each of these components and develop the appropriate solutions necessary to achieve the revenue expectations that have been defined in the company's financial model. With a proper sales plan you and your sales management will have the capability to drive consistent sales and company growth.


 Strategic Planning

Simply put, strategic planning determines where an organization is going over the next few years. The focus of a strategic plan encompasses the entire operation and organization, and its guiding light is the CEO's vision for the company

Research Triangle Business Advisors helps clients evaluate all aspects of their business model. The strategic planning process starts with a documented company vision, which is used to develop the company goals, objectives and the various strategies to achieve them. Further analysis ensures that each functional piece of the business supports and complements the common goals of the company, within the proper financial plan, and on a pre-determined timeline.  Goals, objectives and strategies, when properly defined, work together like a well designed machine, to produce a predictable and consistent result. Although the specifics may emanate from many sources -- executive team, individuals, group discussions, formal decision-making techniques, etc. -- the bottom line is that Research Triangle Business Advisors helps clients plan for the future and identify the best way to get there.


 Executive Coaching & Mentoring

According to Einstein, "We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them." Research Triangle Business Advisors can help you shift your thinking allowing new perspectives. For a willing client we can help you separate the forest from the trees. A key reason to go to a coach is to empower yourself to listen to your own inner voice. Seeking outside help can be beneficial to your personal development as you learn to identify and evaluate more alternative solutions to your issues and become confident with your decisions. Research Triangle Business Advisors provides custom and personalized, one-on-one coaching and mentoring services. Because the coaching and learning that occur are uniquely tailored to the individual, the process differs for each executive and manager we coach. We work closely with our clients to design a custom coaching process that addresses the client’s most critical needs. Our coaching helps you improve: people management, leadership, communications, teamwork, organization, option analysis, decision-making, and risk evaluation skills.
