McFadden Consulting provides specialized, industry-specific, management and strategic consulting services. Our services are designed to improve your organization’s performance and prospects for growth and profitability in the rapidly changing business and regulatory environment facing all sectors of the electric utility and natural gas industries. Our network of consultants has significant experience in utility restructuring and privatization. We can assist your organization in identifying and analyzing, both quantitatively and qualitatively, the full spectrum of strategic responses to challenges and opportunities, and define the range of possible consequences each such response incurs. We can assist you in determining which is the most appropriate alternative for your organization. Our goal is to provide you with the requisite context and structure for informed decision making on the key issues and strategic options facing your organization. Once the strategic direction is established we can assist you in implementing the strategy in a manner designed to increase the likelihood of success.

We can help you:

  • assess impacts of utility restructuring, including implementation of customer choice programs
  • assess, develop, and implement alternative business strategies
  • evaluate existing lines of business to determine future profitability and positioning relative to maintenance, increased investment, or divestiture
  • identify possible acquisition candidates and develop criteria for evaluating acquisition opportunities
  • utilize sensitivity and probability analysis to identify the most appropriate alternatives
  • develop profiles of competitors and assist in developing market strategies to respond to competitor activities
  • project market trends, taking into consideration the constraints of current and possible regulatory actions
  • conduct focused management reviews of key functional area

In many of our Management and Strategic Planning assignments, we utilize DECISIONmaker, a proprietary strategic decision model developed by McFadden Consulting.  The model combines a cash flow analysis, with sensitivity and probability analysis to provide a powerful quantitative strategic decision making tool.

Essentially, DECISIONmaker incorporate and quantify the impact of various uncertainties or “what-ifs” into a strategic decision.  What if revenues are higher, or lower?  What if costs are higher, or lower?  What if there are fewer or more customers?  How would it affect the decision?  DECISIONmaker allows us to look at the variables and determine the impact they could have on the outcome.  For a more detailed explanation of DECISIONmaker click here.
