The Fresh Perspectives team can help your company increase its value in several ways. We have experience in four major areas:
Strengthening existing businesses
Most businesses have underperforming assets, products, brands or businesses. Fresh Perspectives consultants are expert at finding ways to maximize your business' potential. We have proprietary models and a tremendous amount of experience running private and public companies. We have worked in most functional areas and our consultants can provide the right advice at the right time to make a difference. We have strengthened existing businesses with Ashton-Tate, Pepsi, Toshiba, Canon, Visioneer, Adobe Systems, Apple, Stac Electronics, Epson, Quarterdeck, EDS, and many smaller firms.
Creating new businesses
Fresh Perspectives consultants have expertise in both entrepreneurship and corporate entrepreneurships, which are business start-ups within a larger company. We have started our own firms, worked in other start-ups, raised money, created new divisions, established new business units, and built proprietary models on how to be successful in creating such new businesses. We have been involved in creating new businesses with Toshiba, Canon, Citrix Systems, Avery Dennison, and many start-ups.
Entering new markets
We have studied literally hundreds of markets in all kinds of industries. We are expert in analyzing markets, identifying market characteristics critical to success. We have also built some of the most sophisticated go-to-market strategies ever devised. We have experience providing market and brand analysis for many large companies including Adobe Systems, Apple Computer, EDS, Gilian Technologies, Hewlett Packard, Intel, Intertile, JD Edwards, M-Systems, Sony, Pyramid Brewery and Sybase.
