Consulting services: management and operations | CDRQ

At the CDRQ, we recognize the importance of efficient management.

And good management doesn’t happen by magic! What are your business goals? Does your organization have a well-defined vision? To achieve your goals, each member of your organization must fully understand their role. Our specialists can help you with the challenges related to the management of your collective enterprise.

Our consulting services

On a daily basis, you make it your mission to operate your cooperative or NPO efficiently and fairly. Whether you want to improve your business strategy or operations management, we can equip your collective enterprise with the best business practices.

Optimization of the operational structure

Compare the functioning of your organization’s current operations with an optimal operating model. We support you in this work in order to:

  • Obtain an overall picture of the functioning of the organization’s current operations
  • Analyze best operating practices in the industry
  • Identify gaps between the current and desired situations
  • Identify improvements to be made to optimize the operational structure
  • Review roles and responsibilities to support optimized operations
Recovery, continuity and consolidation plans

We work with managers and, where appropriate, cooperative members to prepare continuity, recovery and consolidation plans.

  • A recovery plan addresses the structural difficulties of the business model with a view to restoring profitability.
  • A continuity plan is used to plan and stimulate business recovery following an event (e.g. pandemic, fire, flood, etc.).
  • A consolidation plan allows you to restructure your debts to ease the burden.
Support with change management

Implementing change can bring considerable challenges. The system must be disrupted for a short period of time, which creates a state of imbalance and transition. A number of problems may arise during this period, which is why it needs to be properly managed.

We work with managers to plan the change, but also to develop leadership in order to engage the organization’s members until the change has been made.

Feasibility analysis

A feasibility analysis aims to verify that your project is technically feasible and economically viable. Please note that this is not a market study, but an overview of the main indicators of success (associative, market, legal, regulatory, etc.).
