Priorities change.  When they do, systems can become imbalanced.  Recognizing where and how much effort to direct towards areas of the business is something best learned from experience.  Owning a business is distinctly different from most other interactions in society.  As an Owner, you get to dictate every aspect of a business.  Powerful stuff!  How do you choose to operate?  When Income drops or Cash-flow is less than expected, how do you proceed?  Is your initial reaction to cut costs?  What “cost” is expendable?  Can be tough decisions.  Maple Knoll can help understand how best to respond.

Sorting through a myriad of options is what we specialize in.  If you are not making money, decisions must be made or you risk losing your business.  The fundamentals do not change.  But dealing with rising costs, increasing expenses, recalcitrant employees can make options difficult. at running a manufacturing business is not as difficult as it may seem.  Some complexity comes with scale, but the fundamentals do not change.  You have a product or service that commands a market place…you have people, facility, equipment, material and processes that need to be managed in order to make a profit.
