Operations

Our Diagnostic Scan analyzes key aspects of a business’ operations, including the simplicity of the operational activities, their fit with the company’s strategy, and the potential for operational improvements. Accel Associates believes that product offering and organizational complexity in the organization is one of the primary culprits of underperformance. We have seen how a reduction of complexity can have a significant impact on the company’s performance (e.g. a decrease in product options translates into reduced costs and sometimes increases in revenue). During our review we pay special attention to the fit and alignment that should exist between the operational activities of the company and the value proposition that a business strives to deliver to its clients. Key questions addressed, include:

  • How efficiently does the company operate relative to its peerset?
  • Does the company have the requisite systems in place to successfully scale?
