Business Efficiency Consulting

Andrew’s efficiency consulting addresses the entire scope of a business: its processes, customer service, management, employees, marketing, public relations, and communication.

“When a company hires me as a business improvement consultant, my goal is to immerse myself into the heart of that company and to examine every aspect I have access to, whether it is personnel, management, customer interaction, raw products, utilities, outside contractors, sales & marketing, equipment, office staff & procedures, communication, company history, or internal politics.

“While some companies hire me solely for cost cutting strategies, a trim budget does not equal increased profits nor greater productivity. Cost cutting should be viewed from the perspective of increasing value. Hastily making budget cuts to save money may merely result in decreased profits or a lower value attributed to a company, its workforce, its management, and its products & services.

“My goal with each client is steady improvement. Increased efficiency is useless unless accompanied by a corresponding increase in effectiveness.” – Andrew Jensen
