Business Consulting

Business & Financial Consulting

Improving business performance, turning risk and compliance into opportunities, developing strategies and enhancing value are at the core of what we do for leading organizations.

Digital Transformation

Businesses must modify organizational structures, processes, and the way their people work to become agile and able to adapt to technological advances.

Intelligent Automation

We can help you begin your journey and plan future innovations by addressing strategy, process improvement, security, complexity, and people.

Cyber Security

By understanding your business priorities, strategic direction and operations, we can help protect your critical business processes.

As disruptive technologies upend operating models, displace existing products and services and unlock new opportunities, a company’s growth and earnings have never been more uncertain. Business leaders are now under pressure to make bigger bets on innovation and execute against them.

However, while almost all organizations are in some phase of transformation, about a third of executives say they have failed to achieve value from their initiatives, due to a lack of effective processes for managing innovation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Explore the most frequently asked questions about John Pharr's business consulting services and solutions.

How is the scope of a consulting project determined?

Depending on the business goals, challenges and size of the organization, a project scope is typically determined during the initial consultation sessions.

For complex challenges and enterprise clients, we typically recommend an assessment phase at the beginning of the project.

What problems does business consulting typically solve?

We mix and match our organizational strategy, business process management, instructional design and training programs to develop the perfect solution for your goals.

Do you do fixed price or time and materials contracts?

Depending on the scope of the project, we typically develop fixed price contracts. This allows you to have a defined budget with no surprises.

Do we really need a business plan?

If you run a business, then it’s probably safe to say yes. In fact, you may require more than one business plan: one for raising capital and one for running your business. The former is a compact, easily digested strategic document that is designed to persuade potential investors to pick up the phone and invite you to their offices for an initial meeting. The latter is a more detailed document serving as a day-to-day roadmap, detailing the tactics supporting your overall strategy.

Why should we hire a consultant to write our business plan instead of doing it ourselves

You could easily spend 500 hours or more preparing an investor-grade business plan, financial forecast, and investor presentation, even if you have an MBA. This is time you should probably be spending building your team, product, distribution channels, and customer base.

Will you sign a non-disclosure agreement?

Gladly. We prefer to use a Mutual NDA so that our own trade secrets can be protected as well.

Is our company at the right stage to be looking for capital?

We would be happy to assess your situation, free of charge. Please contact us.

Do you have references?

Yes. We would be delighted to introduce you to our past clients.
