What Is Analysis?
Every client engagement is unique; however, the analytical process is consistently the same:
- 1. Interview the client through a structured series of questions that are unique to that industry and “language” of the industry. The Client is all ownership/shareholders who are active in the business and those who are not currently active in the business but asking the same questions.
- 2. Send a confidential questionnaire to the management team (non-ownership) members are employed.
- 3. Interview the management team.
- 4. Summarize strengths and weaknesses (problems) that are stated.
- 5. Gather financial and operational data to measure the effect of the stated issues.
- 6. Observe the areas of strength and weaknesses noted where possible and ask required questions (for clarity) of key personnel and management.
This process is to provide a full and observed understanding of why a company is strong, where it is weak, and if all parties that affect the strengths and weaknesses are on the “same page.”
If the strength or weakness that are measurable and visible are not commonly understood, then typically the strengths are not maximized nor the problems ever fully corrected.
Understanding strengths and weaknesses fully allow the processes and standards to be established with a view towards the “Real Good” which solidifies the strengths and allows them to flourish. This process allows the “Real Problems” to be identified and it creates the next logical step which is correcting the now understood problems.
The final step is to allow the company personnel to approve the change and test it. This allows for “ownership” of the corrections and establishes a sense of teamwork which is required for anything to work successfully in a company.
As soon as a strength or weakness is discovered and understood, the Implementation of the correction often commences during the analytical process, as methods of change must be tested and reporting controls understood. When another department is needed to support that process change, that is nearly always identified in the analytical stage. In effect, companies need to teach the use of information and the importance of timely response to that information. Company personnel, as needed, should be guided so that ownership of the implementation process is created. If implementing a process cannot be accomplished in the regular course of business, are brought in by BG to establish the new process and teach the client personnel and management how to execute it and control it. This need is nearly always occurs in a new revenue center, that is found to be an important add-on profit center, that needs to have personnel trained in the use of a new technology.
THE BURRUANO GROUP DIFFERENCE
Our US Production Campus had sought the assistance of three of the top international CPA firm Forensic Departments to solve reported issues of construction fraud and kickbacks (during ongoing plant expansions) and theft in the drug manufacturing production facilities. After each failed to identify the issues, we acted on a recommendation to bring in Burruano Group (BG). Simply put, within two weeks BG identified all the issues of theft and corruption in our construction processes with a specific and actionable report. Within 4 weeks the theft issues regarding our drug production plants were identified as to process, financial implications/company cost, and employee(s) involved along with a detailed and actionable report. Fortunately, the theft was limited to one plant. Even our Audit Partner from Price Waterhouse was impressed.
I would like to thank you for the recent analysis of our home building operations. Your in-depth review of our business was very beneficial and gave us key understanding of the pivotal adjustments needed to improve our company’s profitability. The detailed financial, management, and estimating recommendations were invaluable. Your knowledge and expertise in the construction industry is outstanding and was very evident throughout our meetings. I was especially impressed with how quickly you were able to dissect our financial information to make your recommendations. The financial notes and the business review comments you provided were excellent and we immediately began implementing them. I would highly recommend your services to anyone who is serious about success and growth of their construction business.
I am happy to give you our highest level of satisfaction rating. When your firm first came to our offices, we had major concerns about how the business was progressing. We had serious cash flow issues, bank problems, no job controls, inventory issues, and poor financial reporting. I was impressed with how quickly in the first week you were able to recognize the source of our problems and set about getting us into plan mode to resolve them. I truly appreciate having access to your advice any moment of the day. Their depth of professional experience and confidence in business management is superior.
On the first day, the Burruano Group analysts were at our office quantifying the problems and immediately putting in place the management processes and controls needed in estimating, field materials and job labor hours. The results were not only a gain in margin of nearly 20 points, a return to profitability and better cash management, but even though our company was in bank workout, with our new profits and restated/accurate financials, we were able to secure a new bank due to the efforts of Burruano Group. We now know the status of our jobs each week, we are meeting or exceeding our sold margins on jobs, our financial statements are timely for ourselves and the bank, and Burruano Group has begun a process to improve our bid to award rates. Our sales have increased, we see dramatic profit results and our increased cash flow is paying off old debt and moving us forward.
