Business Plan Advisory

Helping companies refocus business plans to address challenges and achieve new growth

Mackinac provides a suite of services to help companies develop and focus strategic, business and operational plans to help address challenges, strengthen core capabilities, develop new channels of growth, improve business performance and maximize an organization’s enterprise value.

As business, market and competitive conditions change over time, it is important that strategic objectives are directed to address new challenges and opportunities, and that organizational and operational design and performance are well aligned to achieve those goals. Mackinac’s methodology, derived from extensive hands-on C-level experience in managing and operating companies at all stages of the business cycle, helps drive strategic and operational plans that have vision and foresight but are also grounded in realistic market and industry conditions, current company operational and competitive considerations, regulatory imperatives and emerging trends.

Whether strategies lead to capability enhancements, improved efficiencies or the development of new customers, markets or product lines – Mackinac can help develop plans that will advance competitive positioning and drive EBITDA and bottom-line performance. We help improve the performance of companies, product/service offerings and portfolios impacted by changing business and competitive dynamics.

We also help companies assess, develop and implement business plans in conjunction with restructurings, bankruptcies and turnarounds, building in new assumptions of reduced costs, retired debt or business units, and new debt or capital facilities to help drive growth post-transaction or post-confirmation.

We work closely with executives and stakeholders to assess risks and opportunities associated with proposed strategies and to refine business models to achieve the highest probability of success.
