WHY Choose 3rd Act Consulting?

There are five main reasons to consider us:

  1. BEST Methodology
  2. BEST Analysis
  3. BEST Results
  4. FULL Service
  5. ROI-based

Plus we will deliver the same type of quality service as notable big-name consulting firms–without paying Big Firm executive overhead! Let’s review each of these five reasons in detail:

1. BEST Methodology

First, 3rd Act Consulting uses one of the industry’s BEST and PROVEN methodologies (developed at MIT) to uncover the core problems or inefficiencies your business is facing–and show you what they are worth if you fix them.

  • Measures 18 Value Drivers. Evaluates the 18 critical drivers (operations, sales & marketing, brand, senior management, recurring revenue, etc.) that reveal the strength or holes within your current business.
  • Peer Comparisons. Uses industry databases with real numbers from actual sold businesses within your industry to calculate and predict your company’s value (within 5-10% of the accuracy of a full valuation), shows what it “could” be worth, and how to get there.
  • Standardized, Holistic Process. We analyze the totality of your company’s operational areas and leverage best practices from assessment through execution to maximize results.

2. BEST Analysis

3rd Act Consulting can help you identify the RIGHT areas to work on first so you will realize the most value within your company.

3. BEST Results

You get a plan of action that includes detailed tasks—ready to execute. Plus, you get help from one of the best business consultants to get it done right—and grow your company to the next level.

  • Most Detailed Reports. In addition to calculating your potential business value and rating your operations, your report benchmarks you against your best performing peers. You will clearly see the risks to your company, how to fix them, and what your company could be worth after implementation.
  • Value Gap. Determines what your business would sell for today, and what it COULD be worth--based on market data showing what the best run businesses actually sell for. Then includes the detailed steps to improve your business to get the highest value—so you can increase profits now and later.
  • Workbook. Includes a workbook of specific tasks to increase company strength and value; and tracks the increased value you create over time. The dynamic, actionable plan guides you through implementing best practices, strengthening operations and building value.

4. Full Service

Once we’ve identified what to work on, we can help you with the entire value acceleration process - from identifying the most productive steps to helping you integrate those steps into your processes and procedures. In addition, what we don’t do personally, we can help connect you with our network of other specialist and some of the best consultants we have pre-vetted and worked with--and we can manage them, or have you connect with them directly—whatever you prefer. These can include help with PR, Lead Generation, SEO, Graphic Design, Websites, Financial Planning, Taxes, Legal, etc.

5. ROI-based - What Can You Expect?
