HOW DOES IT WORK
Three Simple Steps Towards Execution Excellence
There are three essential building blocks to building the architectural framework of a business model that creates, delivers, and captures value. Most importantly, if built correctly, these three essential building blocks will allow your company to scale to any size and scope without failure or collapse.
IDENTIFY THE RIGHT STRUCTURE
Since our inception Smith Gruppe has focused on helping small to medium-sized businesses, non-profit organizations, and lower middle-market companies understand how to wrap their arms and minds around day-to-day operational challenges.
When "structure" is in place, systems follow very closely. There is a reason why: both systems and the structure of the business are necessary to respond to complexity, which grows exponentially as you scale your business.
At Smith Gruppe, we have learned over the hundreds of client engagements where we were retained to develop and grow exemplary leadership; we have arrived at the single most critical question that the leader should ask themselves, and that is, "Whom do I have to be, and what do I need to do to lead this company to success?"
We have found that whatever strengths or weakenesses exist within the business can be traced right back to the cohesion of the executive team and their respective levels of competence, trust, respect,
Smith Gruppe exists solely to fulfill its purpose to "Make A Difference" in each client engagement, exemplified and personified in all we do, our words, and our actions.
Engaging Smith Gruppe as a "Difference Maker" allows us to deliver deep subject matter expertise in helping our clients design a CoE (Center Of Excellence) mindset and program manage it end-to-end to yield high-impact Re$ults!
We provide an all-in-one business intelligence repository that gives you everything you need to run and scale a business. Whether you're just getting started or an established brand, our experience, proprietary software applications and solutions, and our expansive network of resources help business owners and executives realize their objectives and visions.
Smith Gruppe bases its entire business case on fairness and shall at all times act with the highest degree of integrity. We treat our clients with the utmost respect and in a hightly ethical manner.
Our company shall at all times place the integrity of the structured finance, corporate strategy, coaching, leadership, and sales profession and the interests of clients before its own business interest. We use extreme care and exercise professional judgment when conducting strategy analysis, structuring financial transactions and advising on strategic objectives, providing coaching, leadership, and sales training and further making recommendations.
Furthermore, our company shall promote the integrity of and uphold the laws and rules governing any and all transactions, and business dealings and will strive to maintain and improve the professional competence of the capital, strategic, and resource partners.
In closing, the firm will always make full and fair disclosures of all matters that could impair its independence and objectivity and further interfere with its duties and obligations to its clients and/or the business community that would represent any degree of a conflict of interests.

As a prominent non-profit organization with over 25 years of community service successes, Goler Community Development Corporation struggled along with most not-for-profit organizations in todays charitable foundations in defining how it would deliver on its Msssion and Vision in this new typical environment for Charitable Foundations.
Smith Gruppe, with its extensive Project and Program Management background and deep expertise in the non-profit sector, sat shoulder to shoulder with us to assist in redefiining our project portfolio to align with our Mission and Vision. Smith Gruppe facilitated strategic planning sessions that allowed Goler Community Development Corporation to strengthen its capabilities and increase its capacity to pursue more significant grant initiatives than it was capable of in the past.
This resulted in two significant grant awards within the first six months of the engagement relationship with Smith Gruppe.
Goler Community Development Corporation is honored and pleased to consider Smith Gruppe a Strategic Partner who adds value as a community stakeholder in our current project initiatives.
... Michael Suggs - CEO/Executive Director, Goler Community Development Corporation
The decision to invite Smith Gruppe to assess and advise A-PLUS Community Solutions, Inc. on a corporate restructuring was quickly the best decision I made regarding the future of A-PLUS Community Solutions, Inc. in 2016. Not only were the insights provided by Smith Gruppe invaluable, but the impact of having identified new verticals and additional market segments that we had not considered; the increased velocity of capital had a profound effect on the company's balance sheet.
If your company struggles to identify where and how to exploit your current opportunities, the first call you need to make is to Smith Gruppe.
... Larry Morrow - Founder - CIO/CTO, A-PLUS Community Solutions, Inc.
As Project Executive, Board Advisor, and Faculty Administrator at Carter G. Woodson School, I am pleased to offer this testimonial on the tremendous benefits of engaging Smith Gruppe as our Business Advisor.
Although their expertise in the K-12 Education Space is not prominently displayed or promoted, it was immediately evident to the entire faculty and adminstation that the Process Excellence and technical expertise Smith Gruppe possesses is unprecedented. The keen abilities of their software engineers and the train-the-trainer skill sets brought to the project allowed Carter G. Woodson School to be the only Charter School and K-12 Educational Institution in Forsyth County to offer high school students and advanced Software Engineering cohort program.
By streamlining and taking a "lean approach" to how our educational content delivery systems could be optomized to deliver an excellent online educational experience and further supplementing our technology stack to provide a hybrid (cloud and on-premise) solution, we were able to run a successful cohort and have a high certification rate in our first cohort.
Without Smith Gruppe's leadership, coaching, and guidance, we would not have known where or how to start. ---- Thank You! Thank You! Thank You to the Smith Gruppe Team, and we are eternally grateful that Smith Gruppe has adopeted the Carter G. Woodson School's mindset and motto - "Strive To Excel, Not To Equal."
... Aynn Daniels - Project Executive, Board
Advisor, Faculty Adminstrator, Carter G. Woodson School
