As companies grow, technologies evolve, and ownership changes, what has worked in the past will often no longer work. Burnie Group’s value creation practice helps private equity funds and their portfolio companies identify initiatives that will drive value for their business. We develop a clear, practical plan, then leverage our technology and operations expertise to help you execute successfully.

Successfully execute your value creation plan: We develop integrated, bottoms-up plans to help you execute your value creation initiatives.

Our approach to value creation

1. Current state assessment

We assess your business’s current state and develop a fact-based understanding of where your business is heading.

2. Identify opportunities

We work with you to identify opportunities for value creation across all areas of your business, such as revenue growth, cost optimization, capital efficiency and enterprise value. We bring together key stakeholders in a prioritization workshop to align on strategy and initiatives to pursue.

3. Roadmap & execution

We design execution plans for each value creation initiative, ensuring the right resources and skills are in place to execute. We develop a clear governance framework to assign ownership and metrics for the plan going forward.
