Get Off the Plateau

Get Off the Plateau
Is it Time for a Business Transformation?

Yes, If You’re Stuck on a Plateau…

Business GrowthIf what you’ve been doing for years produces growth that barely registers, is it time to think big?

  • Big as in breaking things.
  • Big as in “let’s do what we’ve never done before!”
  • Big as in transformational.

The sad truth is that a business that’s not growing is slowly dying. For example, this year’s $4.5 million is worth less than last year’s $4.5 million. And $4.5 million will be worth less next year.

You can reverse the trend.

It’s possible to revitalize, grow and get off the plateau. The key is to commit to transforming the company. Everything must be a candidate for change. Nothing can be off the table.

Trivers Consulting Group will partner with you for this thorough and dramatic change in form.

Is Transformation Right for Your Company?

As the owner of a low-mid-market or small company, you’ve tended it and nurtured it for years. You have a huge advantage when it comes to transformation if you only tap into it. Knowing the ins and outs, the dark corners and little secrets means you know where every possibility lies.

The Owner must be gutsy.

  • It’s gutsy to ask: What does an $XX million company look like?
  • It’s gutsy to ask: What do we have to have in order to become an $XX million company?
  • It’s gutsy to ask: What do we have to do to make it?

The height of gutsiness is to commit: We’re going to create a dramatic and thorough change.

Trivers Consulting Group doesn’t advocate tossing everything out will-nilly. We advocate focusing on a company’s strengths and building around them. We look for gaps between 2 successful parts and recommend ways to fill them in. We’re excited to uncover trapped opportunities.

We rarely try to fix weaknesses, because that consumes resources that could be used for the transformation.

What are your current strategic statements? “We deliver X value to Y buyers for Z profit.”


Strategy analysis: which of these strategies will contribute to the transformation?

    2. Do we discontinue offerings, let low value buyers go, emphasize high value in our brand?
    3. What new products and services do our target markets want and need?

How do we increase the value of products and services purchased by our best buyers? How can we add value in the form of “tangible intangibles” that increase profit?


How do we make the customer experience unmatched? Quality, content, timing, delivery, service, post-delivery relationship.


How do we attract new perfect fit buyers?
