75% of small and mid-size companies operate below their potential.  Many know this, but a surprising 50% figure this out when it is too late.  Very often, this is due to external factors such as increased competition, new innovations (scientific, technical or IT), regulatory changes or market instability.  On the other hand, companies do not realize what is happening internally due to growth challenges, investor pressure, incorrectly managing innovation, inability to operate internationally, or even challenges due to changes in vendor strategies and other obstacles.


We at 3T3 aim to help our clients improve their performance, whether it is the entire business, a business unit, a function or a team through the

  • optimization of time, talent and treasure

  • by using the right combination of teams, tools, and tasks

  • all driven by truth, trust and tenacity.


The 3T3 philosophy underpins how we help clients make the right changes to be successful. 

  • We start with understanding

    • our client’s mix of time (resource capacity), talent (skills) and treasure (funding, innovative concepts, other assets),

    • how the combination of teams (people), tools (software, templates, training) and tasks (processes) helps drive business performance, and

    • how their culture supports decision-making and operations through truth, trust and tenacity. 

  • We then work closely with their key stakeholders to design the right model and define the right changes to achieve business improvement (in support of their strategic objectives).

  • Finally, we can help implement change as appropriate. 

This is more than management consulting – we go beyond making recommendations because we have a desire to help our clients “make change stick” in a way that effectively uses their existing skill sets.


  • Business is struggling but you don’t know why

  • You know what to change but don’t know how

  • You have innovative ideas but don’t know how to take advantage of them

  • You have a unique asset (e.g. data or analytics) but don’t know how to monetize it

  • Business is stagnating or performing poorly

  • The operations do not support the company vision or objectives

  • Individual contributors are not working effectively (either within a team or a function or across both)

We apply our wealth of experience in leading business optimization initiatives to help you make the right change, at the right time, in a way that is both lasting and cost-effective.

Our Approach

We can support you in all the phases of a successful optimization:

  • Evaluate elements of the 3T3.  Remember, these are time, talent and treasure; tools, teams, tasks and tools; truth, trust and tenacity.  They are compared with industry practices.  Define clear objectives (if they do not already exist) and compare to current performance.

  • Identify quick wins.  Sometimes change is faster to realize than you think.  We don’t want to waste your money on a long, drawn-out assessment.

  • Design the future operating model.  Here we get creative and innovative with your team to design the right organization, processes, and supporting tools to help you achieve your objectives.  The business blueprint, if you will.  Sometimes there are several models to consider, and we apply a sound business case and evaluation framework to help you decide which one is right for you – quickly.

  • Plan the journey.  Developing the right approach to making change stick is crucial.  Optimizing your time, treasure and talent will be critical.  Selecting the right team (internal and external) will be just as important.

  • Implement change.  Making change stick requires discipline in managing it and balancing people’s capacity for change, because sometimes you need to change the wheels while you are driving.  You need to change people, process and technology at the same time.  And, you need to be adaptive and flexible during the journey.  We can help guide you through this, help manage the process, or provide hands-on operational support.

  • Run the new.  Now it is time to work according to the new model.  Since things won't change if you don’t measure them, we can help provide objective feedback to leadership as well as teams on the ground.
