WhatTheyThink Consulting Services Announces Opportunity Audit

Wednesday, July 15, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

Lexington, Kentucky USA – WhatTheyThink, a leading media, market intelligence and research company for the printing and publishing industries, today added an Opportunity Audit to its array of consulting services.  Offered in conjunction with RH Rosen Associates, Inc., Opportunity Audits offer printing companies a fresh look at opportunities to make their businesses more profitable and more valuable.

“Owners of printing businesses can benefit greatly from taking a fresh look at their businesses,” said Bob Rosen, President of RH Rosen Associates, a WhatTheyThink consultant and author of The Graphic Arts CEO.  “It’s not a theoretical process. We’ve owned nine graphic arts companies and have worked with almost 600 companies over the past twenty years. Our experience as business owners and consultants ensures that we understand the issues that are reshaping the industry so that we can offer printing company owners and managers practical methods for making their businesses more competitive and more profitable.”

The Opportunity Audit is built around two on-site visits, but it begins with collecting background information to be prepare for productive on-site discussions. Extended conversations are conducted with the owner and key staff members, as well as observation of company operations– looking for untapped opportunities and identifying any operational issues that might stand in the way of progress.

During the second on-site visit, a full report is presented and discussed with the management team. There is not a packaged or theoretical approach, but rather, a means of offering practical and actionable ideas for improving competitiveness and increasing profits. All recommendations are tuned to the individual company, its management team and its way of doing business.

“The Opportunity Audit isn’t a management critique,” added Rosen. “It’s just an experienced set of eyes taking a fresh look at your business and offering helpful opinions. It could be just the thing you need to plot a more profitable course in today’s tough competitive environment.”
