"Many times companies engage us to solve a singular issue, but almost 100 percent of the time the solution needs a combination of strategic guidance, operational portfolio improvement, corporate development augmentation, and restructured or new financial growth capital in order to solve the underlying issues." – Garry E. Meier, Ephor Group Founder

The Ephor Group has developed, implemented, and refined over the past 12 years the “Concept of Organizational Clarity.” This concept has been instrumental in the development and success of numerous transformational and industry sector leadership business models.

Organizational Clarity has four components that must work conterminously and are mutually dependent upon each other for transformational or sector leadership and success:

1. Strategic Clarity
2. Operational Clarity
3. Tactical Clarity
4. Financial Clarity


The Outcomes of Organizational Clarity include:
• A Sector Influencer or Sector Transformational Business Model
• Exponential Shareholder and Entrepreneur Wealth Creation
• Significant Economic Societal Success and Job Outcomes
• The Desired “Storybook Happy Ending” for all Stakeholders

Operational Clarity

    • A precise understanding of the “Target Market(s)”, sector dynamics, opportunities, competition, shareholder value “drivers”, leadership capabilities, thought & knowledge leaders and expert advisors

Tactical Clarity

 

Because of their unique characteristics, labor intensive companies such as technology software and service providers, create a number of challenges when working to optimize profitability:


  • Effective Customer Lifecycle Management (Mapped, Defined, Engineered)
  • Continual Increase in Unit Revenues Per Client
  • At Risk & Incentive Compensation for All
  • Effective Distribution & Channel Programs
  • Customer and employees are “Daily Aligned” with technology/IT  and analytics
  • Field Level EBITDA  Increase Consistently
  • Sales at/above Top Quartile Performance Utilization (consistent productivity)
  • Cost of Customer is Best-of-Breed in the Segment

 

 

Financial Clarity


Owners and financial types are always telling me that their company has a sales or capital shortage problem -- and almost 100% of the time lack of outside perspectives and flawed portfolio structure are the root cause barrier to creating wealth." – Garry E. Meier, Ephor Group Chairman.

 

Financial Clarity Outcomes include:

  • The Amount of Wealth that can be created by the "franchise" is identified
  • Execution and Investment Risk are Minimized
  • Exit Optionality is created
