Clear Point Group: Focus • Solution • Action

Operations Consulting

Many initiatives fall short, not from a failure of strategy, but from a failure of execution. Clear Point Group can help bring clarity to your operational challenges, develop innovative solutions and aid in implementation – so you fully realize the exceptional results you seek.

Superior execution requires the right operational elements - such as organization design, staffing levels and assignments, process flows, and market positioning. We excel in helping you achieve operational excellence in the following areas:

Human Capital Management: Properly acquiring and managing the right individuals for your organization is the key to long-term success. Our services help you with HR issues such as recruitment and staffing systems, employee performance management, and organization design.

Technology Management: Science and technology are core competencies of most of our clients. We help companies refine their systems for converting basic science and innovation into exceptional competitive advantages - both in the marketplace and in their internal systems.

Security: Our clients recognize the critical importance of security in their operations, as well as the services and products they offer their own customers. Clear Point Group advises companies on security issues (physical, network, etc.) as well as positioning products and services in a security-conscious marketplace. Our capabilities in this area include audits and security certifications (such as FIPS, Common Criteria/ISO 15408, and ICSA).

General Management Issues: Internal auditing effectiveness is more important than ever - especially in light of Sarbanes-Oxley and other requirements. Clear Point advises companies on auditing effectiveness and provides external auditing of processes and controls. Ethics and compliance are additional considerations of our clients. Our firm also assists with important management issues such as mergers, joint ventures, and licensing.

Marketing: Market research and analysis are important first steps in developing a company's successful positioning. Clear Point has extensive experience in advising on critically important marketing issues, such as successfully selling to the government and preparing a multi-billion dollar product for a blockbuster launch.

Quality, Safety, and Facility Performance: Clear Point's staff includes engineers with decades of experience in plant management, product quality, regulatory compliance, and safety management. We put these capabilities to use on engagements dealing with manufacturing efficiency, plant operator training, maintenance procedures, and department organization.
