Assessments

Kirchner Group has refined our diagnostic/assessment process over the years to provide an objective and comprehensive view into our clients’ strengths and weaknesses as well as provide go-forward options. The identification and analysis of the merits of each go-forward option is a key differentiator for us from consultants who may purport to provide operational assessment-like services. This analysis allows stakeholders to meet their fiduciary responsibility and to make well-informed decisions about the Company’s future strategic direction.

Our professionals have extensive backgrounds running private and public companies and bring deep domain expertise to the table. We are experts at differentiating between perception and reality. Typically, the main decision facing investors and BOD members in complex situations is not only (a) what to do next, but also (b) how to do it. The Kirchner Group plays a key role in illuminating these options and can step in to help execute them if appropriate. Also unlike the approach typically taken by consultants, we don’t issue a report just based on what management told us — we apply our own operational experience and in-the-trenches perspective to separate the “wheat from the chaff”.

“Kirchner has an impressive team that very quickly assessed our Company and came up with solid recommendations for the future, including restructuring the staff and providing a path to a successful exit strategy.”

Gerry Verner, Chief Executive Officer AnyWare Group

Often, in the same way that a patient needs a regular comprehensive check-up to assess their health, independent of any obvious health issues, so too do companies benefit from a regular Kirchner diagnostic report to determine how well it is.

On the back of our deep operational experience, we are able to assess each and every aspect of a company. We deliver our assessments in four separate modules, so clients can select any single module or combination of multiple modules.
