Strategic Planning

What are your competitors doing? What projects are you investing in, and why? How can you deliver your products and/or services more efficiently?

These are common questions in an increasingly global market place categorized by continuous change. When trying to optimize short-term performance while sustaining your long-term growth and competitive positioning, a current strategic plan or roadmap is a critical reference tool to keep you working towards and accountable to your goals.

Economic Impact and Special Studies

What magnitude of effect do we have on the Province? What do stakeholders believe is the best course of action?

Your operations are unique, and so are your opportunities and challenges. We can help you get the answers to drive progress in an efficient manner. Whether that is consulting with a body of stakeholders to generate strategy, tactics or build consensus, or answering specific questions like what level of tax benefit will my project generate for the Province.


Operational Reviews and Performance Management

Are we operating according to guiding policies and procedures? Is there a way to do this more efficiently?

Having a trusted third party provide an objective review of your operations to ensure your operational structure supports your mission and objectives and that financial reporting mirrors the current reality is invaluable. Operational reviews allow your organization to evaluate how well they are following policies and procedures, allocating resources, using cost-effective measures and more importantly, how well you are prepared to meet future challenges.


Funding Proposals

What funding options are available to me? How do I prepare to give myself the best chance of obtaining funding?

Our consulting professionals at MacPherson Roche Smith have prepared funding applications and proposals to government agencies, research councils, chartered banks and private investors as well as post-secondary educational institutions. Among the sectors we have worked with include retail, renewable energy, bioscience, advanced manufacturing, information and communications technology, agriculture, food technology, post-secondary education and financial services.
