Growth organization advisory services help professional service firms create an environment that facilitates growth. People, processes, structure and resources all must align and work together to provide an environment where entrepreneurial practice leadership thrives.
At the Catalyst Group, we help leading regional and national professional service firms organize for growth. Our growth organization audits focus on understanding and clarifying management objectives and assessing the ability of the current growth organization to support organizational growth.
Our future state advisory services take short-term and long-term management objectives and build a blueprint for the future growth structure of the firm. Marketing audits focus specifically on analyzing and improving the effectiveness of the marketing function within a firm.
Our Growth Organization Advisory Services include:

Firm Go-to-Market Facilitation
Successful deployment of sales and marketing resources is contingent upon a clear mandate and a firm-wide plan for growth. During annual strategic growth planning, we help our clients identify and prioritize areas of growth opportunity. During our growth planning process we will plan for new client acquisition, strategic market/service/industry identification, cross-selling strategies, new service introductions, strategic acquisitions, and other growth initiatives. The annual strategic growth plan provides direction for go-to-market efforts and the deployment of sales and marketing resources.
A marketing audit will provide a comprehensive assessment of the effectiveness and capabilities of your marketing department. A marketing audit always starts with management, ensuring that the objectives and expectations of the department are clearly defined, communicated and in alignment with organizational objectives. From there, we take a deep dive into the leadership, operations, resources and alignment of the department in order to identify opportunities for operational improvement.
A marketing audit will help firms that desire greater effectiveness from their deparment. We conduct marketing audits on behalf of firm management, growth management and marketing management teams.
