Risk Analysis

From time to time, any business travels through variations in its risk profile. The risk profile can change due to economic changes, industry changes, contractual changes, financial pressures, regulatory amendments and changes in the relationships with suppliers, customers, lenders, financiers, shareholders, employees, landlords and owners.

Biz Dr can assist in identifying risk factors that will impact the interested party and allow them to better understand a pathway towards understanding how to either eradicate the risk or take action to mitigate against it. Similarly, when an external stakeholder needs to assess the risk aspects of entering into transactions with a business, this risk analysis enables clarity to that stakeholder.

The risk analysis task can be undertaken in various formats including a light, medium or heavy format. The intensity of the task will be dependant on the stakeholders needs and budgetary capacity.

Business Recovery

During the entire existence of any business, there will be challenges that will be faced regarding performance, external impacts, internal processes and capacity impacts.

Akin to seeing a medical doctor when facing a medical challenge be it an infection, broken arm or a chronic illness, Biz Dr can undertake a diagnosis of any situation with a practical and empathetic mindset and then provide a pathway to recovery.

Businesses often need assistance in overcoming challenges that they face which can distract business owners, lenders and other stakeholders away from their core focus. These distractions can ultimately cause an acceleration of the situation and/or be so distractive that the fundamentals of their business are abandoned and the entirety of the business is then placed in jeopardy.
