AH Consulting – Solutions

The following AH Consulting Solution services are adapted and scaled to deliver the best value for clients. Relevant coaching is built into all engagements. Also, please visit our solutions website –  AHC-Solutions.co – that explains our approach.
Designed for evolving startups who are ready to transition from “startup mode of operation” to a rationalized operating model to scale their business – starting by addressing Early-Stage Barriers. First a note about what “scalability” means. It means flexibility and that as you bring on more customers the acquisition and operational cost goes down – thereby creating greater profit margins. It is not just a function of bringing on more customers. This requires creating an efficient, well-oiled operation with aligned training and onboarding – with an eye on continuous improvement. Our approach encompasses leadership alignment, resolving bottlenecks, assessing processes and practices, and developing operational scalability frameworks that evolve to grow the company and customers.In addition to the core deliverables from AH Consulting’s Signature Pathway Engagement that will be input to this Service engagement, suggested next service delivery topics for Scalability Readiness include:
  • Process Assessments for Scalability Readiness (“how things are done”)
  • Creation of Playbooks for Key Functions (directional operational guides)
  • Training Strategy and Curriculum Design Alignment (as input to Training Development)
  • Organizational Alignment (training and communication)
  • Scalability Planning and Methodology Maturity Alignment (long-term view)

Realigns Project Management Office (“PMO”) with value delivery over project delivery. While projects are the means by which value is typically delivered. One can deliver a perfect project where the intended value is never achieved.

Well-suited for:

  • Established companies with existing PMOs and want to take it to the next level to realize the added value
  • Established companies with earlier-generation PMOs that have failed to deliver value
