What we do

assess

Assess

We begin by listening. Tell us what isn’t working, what goals you aren’t meeting.

Then we’ll take your business for a quick run around the track and see what shape you’re in. Through conversation, observation, interviews, document review, audits, evaluation tools, and process reviews, as well as a few other things we’ve learned over the years, we’ll help you determine the well-being of your business. We’ll help you see what you excel at, and we’ll show you where you can improve.

strategize

Strategize

We’ll put together a custom program to improve your business health, tailored to your unique needs, challenges and opportunities. Whether it’s rearranging your human resources to make better use of your business muscles, developing new processes to allow you to lift heavier business challenges, or improving your safety by showing you better ways to move forward. We’ll develop the next steps for you to take that work for you.

And like a gym, we have access to all the different types of equipment and trainers that you might need, so we can connect you with the exact fit that best supports your business.

impliment

Implement

We’re there to make it happen. We’ll coach you through one more lap of process refinement, or squeezing out that last set of business measurements. We’ll step in to spot you on that heavy compliance weight that you haven’t quite been able to lift yet. We’ll guide you through any change management to minimize the challenges and accomplish your goals.

looking-ahead

Looking ahead

We are always looking ahead, spotting your next challenges for you. With an eye on the horizon, we’ll assess oncoming obstacles before they arrive, and help you eliminate them before they become ugly surprises that negatively impact your business health.

We’ll help you do the hard work, in an enjoyable and rewarding way. We’re there with you, every step of the way, to ensure you are reaping the benefits of a strong, healthy business.

Our Approach

People make the world go round.

No matter what you do, no matter the kind of business you have, it’s made up of people.

At ABVSquared, we have a people focus, and we’re here to empower you and your staff, and help you to work at your greatest capacity. While we believe that great processes, systems and tools can make your work stronger, faster and safer, you can’t be truly effective until you engage your staff, making full use of their strengths and working to your own strengths as well. We help you do just that.

You are greater than just some of your parts

We think about the whole system at ABVSquared. Given our expertise in people management, business processes, safety and security, we look at the big picture of your business, and help you refine your work to ensure everything is working at its very best.

People have one thing in common: 
we’re all unique

Your business or organization has unique challenges and requirements. So we customize all of our work to match your specific needs – we don’t believe in selling tools, we believe in building relationships. We help you come up with individualized solutions to whatever challenge you have.

Running a business – like running a marathon – shouldn’t be a world of pain

We go beyond your pain points to help you find life long business wellness. Like any good personal trainer, we meet you where you’re at, and help you set and meet your goals over the entire life span of your business. We also proactively help you solve issues before they arise. We don’t view your challenges as problems, instead we look for opportunities for you to grow to become faster, stronger, and safer than ever before.

Who we are

As the principals of ABVSquared, we bring with us nearly 40 years of combined experience in business management, leadership and HR consulting, as well as expertise in risk management, health and safety, and security, all with the goal of making your business a safe, lean and powerful machine. We’ve not only got the chops, we’ve also got the credentials to back up what we do. Here’s a little more about both of us…
