Tough Times Call for Informed Decisions

Thinc Strategy

April 3, 2020

As leaders and owners of businesses, we are faced with making decisions daily - some decisions are easy and some are not so easy. Unfortunately, the tough times we are facing as business leaders are causing a major disruption in our normal business operations and causing most, if not all, business leaders to think about the way the business operates. It has been an amazing testament to the business community and the leaders we work with daily to see every organization quickly respond, be nimble in their operations and pivot to what works in today’s environment. How are these leaders able to adapt so quickly? They have been able to adapt quickly by making informed and well-thought out decisions about their organization. Not all of these decisions have been easy and some have certainly been tough, but the underlying message has been that a decision must be made. Allowing the fear of the unknown to cause you to be paralyzed into not making a decision will hinder your business’s need to adapt to the quickly changing environment we are all currently faced with.

Are all decisions you make the right decision? No, of course not – but that is okay! As long as you are utilizing all of the tools and information available to you to make a decision, you are allowing for your business to transition into the new normal as seamlessly as possible. Given the rapid and unpredictable change in today’s business environment, Thinc has been working with business leaders and owners daily doing “what if” analyses to provide the tools needed to see the various “what if” scenarios we are all facing in today’s uncertainty.

Thinc Strategy can help you better plan for today or the future of your organization. Give us a call and we will be glad to help arm you with the tools necessary to make decisions for your organization and team! We can’t promise the decisions will be easy, but one thing we can promise is that you will be equipped with the information you need to make an informed decision!

“Thinc Strategy understands how to match culture with goals.  We tried acquiring companies on our own.  We had limited time and expertise to successfully move through all of the stages in the process.  We brought Thinc in to assist us and later realized, we need to let them guide our efforts.  Three transactions later, we are more valuable, more profitable and still growing.”

“Several years ago, Thinc Strategy sold my company for me – handling every aspect from preparing a list for me to accomplish three years before the sale to handling all the issues after the sale. My broker informed me that it was the best deal he had ever seen, all due to Cindy’s expertise, critical thinking, and superb negotiating skills. I welcome the opportunity to talk to anyone that would like to learn more about Thinc Strategy and Cindy’s remarkable abilities.“
