A.G. HARRISON & ASSOCIATES specializes in
the provision of “hands on” services, where the emphasis is on assisting the
client business principal and his management and employees to understand the
methodology and systems that are being put in place, as a result of a
predetermined consultant brief.
The “Hands On” principal, particularly in the
small business arena (companies with less than 100 employees), is critical to
sustaining long term positive outcomes. Part of the process is the “ENTERPRISE
REVIEW PROCESS” which is specifically designed for each client to suit their
particular organisation and allows the client to effectively manage business
development, change and a range of other key issues that will have an ongoing
impact on the business.
The following are specific services provided:
INVESTIGATIONS (for off shore organisations)
PLANS & MARKET DEVELOPMENT
OHSW ASSESSMENTS & PLANNING
DEVELOPMENT (LOCAL & INTERNATIONAL)
PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT (materials & services)
PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT & COMMERCIALISATION
MENTORING & PROBLEM SOLVING
WITH GOVERNMENT NEGOTIATIONS
The foregoing covers the majority of specific
assistance that is provided to clients, however, each client has an individual
operation and as such, there may well be situations that are peculiar to a
particular business that require thinking “outside of the square” for the best
results for that client, in these cases, the “hands on” philosophy is critical
to solid and successful outcomes.
