Who i am
Anzalone Advisors, LLC
I am a management consultant who operates on the principle that culture is everything. My passion is seeking out the intersection of employee engagement and operational excellence in the manufacturing, commercial printing and graphic arts space. While there are many fine consultants who can crunch numbers and map out workflows, it is my belief that unless you examine the culture of a company it will be difficult to create the change necessary to produce high performance results. With a BS in Printing Management and more than 33 years of experience in the commercial printing business, I’ve seen dramatic change in our industry, with much of that change challenging even the most well run companies. My goal is to become a trusted advisor to help your company grow and achieve the next level of success.
What i do
My business is centered on three primary types of engagements:
These are usually one-time projects where you seek an objective assessment of your human resources, operation or business practices and then recommendations for improvement or implementation of new processes. Examples would be development of employee surveys, workflow assessments, calculation of Budgeted Hourly Rates (BHR’s) or production standards, equipment selection and justification, or post-merger integration support, to name a few.
It is not uncommon for a company to desire to add an executive, but find it difficult to justify a six-figure salary to do so. On a temporary, or even longer-term basis, I can fill a remote President or COO role and work with your team to streamline processes, improve results, develop talent, or hire someone to fill the role permanently.
The holy grail of consulting relationships, in this retainer-based role I will act as your right hand advisor and confidant and provide the sounding board and second option that many find so valuable. Tailored to fit your needs, this role is normally a combination of on-site visits, weekly conference call meetings, and weekly / monthly performance analysis. As an owner or executive it can be “lonely at the top” – but it doesn’t have to be.
