5 Unique Factors about IA Business Advisors That Improves Businesses

1. Education.

An effective consultant should be highly educated in the industry they consult in. IA Business Advisors is not a group of consultants that rely solely on experience without the education or knowing its value. IA Business Advisors actually has consultants with Doctorate degrees in Business and Organizational Psychology. Around 4% of the global population and 1% of the US population possess doctoral degrees, so it’s quite exclusive to have that level of education. Knowing your consultant is highly educated reassures you of the knowledge going into improving your business. Since a Doctorate degree is research driven, you can rest assured that all the right variables are being looked at and assessed objectively at IA Business Advisors to provide you the best course of action to apply to your business decisions and strategies.

2. Real world experience.

IA Business Advisors is staffed with professionals with immense business operations experience. We have been helping business owners and managers globally since 1996. Our expansive database of tools can amplify your business goals beyond expectation. Dr. Brian Smith, the Senior Managing Partner of IA Business Advisors has worked with hundreds of small, mid-sized and large businesses over the years, turning around companies, rescuing business operations and making unprofitable companies profitable again. Moreover some of the turn arounds have been minor tweaks in business operations of the companies we have consulted with, and they have proven successful.

3. Data driven, but read between the numbers.

Data is a major way to determine how businesses are operating and how they should operate. We are data driven and believe in the numbers telling a lot about the story, but not all. Human factor, external factors, seasonality etc. play roles in how businesses operate and should be highly considered, to avoid wasting time and resources. A client recently discussed how her business profits have been declining for the past few years. She recently moved her company’s physical location. Her recent move however prevented her from getting the foot traffic she typically received in her old location. While analyzing her yearly numbers could reveal when her profits started to decline, it won’t necessarily say why. Asking the right questions revealed her recent move and how it may have played a factor in declining profits. IA Business Advisors’ consultants are trained and skilled at asking the right questions, analyzing the right data and reading between the numbers to determine ways to improve your operations.
