Strategic Planning

We take an outside-in approach when partnering with companies on defining business strategies. The first step is to deeply assess the industry; what are the trends, what are competitors’ actions, how are customers’ needs changing, and where is a good place to make a buck? Following the industry analysis, we then help our clients define capability-driven strategies to win within their targeted market segments. Most mid-market businesses must make tough priority choices, so it is critical to be selective and judicious with resources.

Having led mid-market businesses and worked along-side family-owned businesses, we understand resource constraints. To that end, we work with clients to amplify their strengths at high-leverage points to maximize impact and minimize risk.

Whether you are in a mature market segment, an evolving segment, or attacking an adjacency, we can help you evaluate the landscape and craft a winning strategy. This north star can galvanize an organization to win over the long-term.

Business Development

We look at business development as your opportunity to grow where you can be most impactful. While every company wants to grow, the question often times is how to achieve sustainable differentiation. Mid-sized companies rarely possess all the resources required to launch a meaningful new venture, so it is critical to prioritize and partner. And following the planning, the experience to adapt to unforeseen challenges can make or break a launch.

Our team will collaborate with your organization to identify customer pain points and create offerings to solve these unmet needs. Once this concept is created, we have experience implementing business plans as stand-alones or with partners to win in the market.

Whether your business competes in a commodity category or has points of difference, it can be a platform to generate growth into new market segments. JACO will roll up its sleeves with you to turn Business Development aspirations into reality.

Operational Performance

As your business grows and changes, we can provide you with the guidance and expertise needed to optimize your operations. Utilizing Lean principles like Kaizen, 5S, demand- based flow, values stream mapping, poka-yoke, and root cause analysis, our strategies strive to remove waste, optimize & standardize processes, reduce cost, while respecting people.

We emphasize process improvement through KPI measurement, PDCA cycles, and other tools designed to engage employees in the continuous improvement mindset. We understand that successful business operations hinge on employees having the right attitudes and work ethic; therefore, we prioritize engagement at an organizational level to promote growth through improvement.

By implementing Lean tools and principles into their day-to-day operations, our clients optimize processes and save time, money, and resources. Lean provides them with a unique opportunity to create value for their customers while increasing profitability without sacrificing quality or service.

We partner with and become an extension of every business we work with, providing critical support when needed.

Talent Optimization

We believe that people are the last point of differentiation for most businesses, so building a strong company culture that people are excited to be a part of is key to building a growing and sustainable business. Such an approach will not only allow your organization to attract the best talent, but it will also enable you to retain that talent along the way.

Successfully implementing a talent optimization strategy can help your company unlock its hidden human potential. Through an iterative process - like ones used when examining continuous improvement of business systems - companies can effectively monitor their “people data” and make necessary adjustments as needed.

By taking the time to invest in a strong company culture that fosters trust and engagement, businesses can ensure they are well-equipped to attract and retain top talent. Doing so will help them unlock their hidden human potential while also helping create an environment of growth and success.
