Strategic Business Services
Do you fully understand how to position your organization to provide clients with the best outcome?
Regardless of whether or not your organization is a private or public entity, responsible managers are always considering what steps they must take to build a strong operation that is poised for future growth, while at the same time operating at peak efficiency. To do this, managers must consistently analyze key components of their operation such as human resources and employee development; asset valuation, maintenance, capital plans, and revenue flow; equipment upgrades; health and safety plans; or the rationale behind your rate strategy.
Trying to figure all of this out alone could be challenging for even the most experienced professionals. However, Walden has the expertise to help organizations define a long-term strategy that will be both scalable and sustainable while providing clients with excellent service at a reasonable cost.
For example, our staff of experts can help utility operators assess the viability of operating their own system or selling to an independent operator. This may include a valuation of the system, an infrastructure condition assessment, or a rate study, all of which have been done numerous times by Walden’s Business and Transaction Advisory Team.
Or perhaps your organization needs to make long-term investments to bring your utility up-to-date and in compliance with regulations but you are unsure of how to obtain the necessary financing. Walden’s Grant Writing Team has helped numerous entities secure financing for their critical projects.
For some, the answer to their operational challenges may be in creating a partnership or regional collaboration with other entities. Walden has wide-ranging experience in preparing Shared Services and Intermunicipal Agreements for organizations that recognize that such partnerships can result in increased operational efficiency and cost savings for consumers.
To augment those efforts, Walden’s Research and Development Team provides strategic guidance to entities that wish to reduce their impact on the environment by developing real-world solutions to environmental issues that can be implemented and sustained.
Whatever changes you may be considering for your organization, do not proceed without having a well-rounded strategy developed. Walden’s team consists of engineers with MBAs and grant writing expertise as well as safety experts that can team to help managers tackle operational challenges using data and tactical skills.
