Since its inception, Value Bridge has been offering practical solutions and recognized methodologies to its customers when they face complex situations.
Budget should be understood as the administration strategic financial plan for a given year. It is a representation of the annual breakdown of the business plan and shows forecasts of revenues, taxes, costs and expenses, as well as investments for a company.
In the Zero Base Budgeting (ZBB), we run a model where areas make their best forecasts of revenues, costs and expenses without spending too much time analyzing the past. At the same time, we have built a cost prioritization methodology that allows for a drastic cost reduction and SG&A (Selling, General & Administrative Expenses).
Through a structured methodology we evaluate the processes, systems and organizational structure of the various areas of the company, identifying gaps comparing to best practices, always considering the company strategic drivers. This methodology provides a map of opportunities which will be prioritized and presented for the implementation phase.
Based on our diagnosis and experience of numerous projects of our team, we promote performance improvement in the areas of Finance, Commercial, Operations, Human Resources and Management.
Just as important as planning for the future is building the foundation for monitoring and executing strategic initiatives. Strategy without execution does not translate into results. We supply methodologies throughout the process, from scenario analysis to the deployment of goals in all areas of the organization.
Post Merger Integration
We understand by post merger synergies all the gains made when we analyze business with areas that have some kind of complementarity or overlap.
By analyzing processes, systems and people, we develop a post-merger synergy plan where all gains are identified and prioritized, enabling the company to capture these opportunities.
