“In the business world, the rear-view mirror is always clearer than the windshield.” - Warren Buffett
Enterprises are born of a desire & a dream of the entrepreneur. The entrepreneur is always faced with tough challenges: getting a foothold in the market: making the right choices on product, market & people, managing the financial health and, of course, steering the enterprise for the future.
Athena Compass offers Consulting solutions to address the concerns of the entrepreneur and maintaining a comfortable balance between Growth and Control.

Once the solutions are found, the practices are embedded into operating procedures and build operational excellence into the enterprise.
Structure and Stability:
With the growth of the enterprise comes the need for structure. And the organization needs to be stable in the face of VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity) world. It needs people of high caliber who can play a larger role in organizational expansion and growth. Athena Compass consulting helps the entrepreneur to establish structures, systems and procedures that suit their strategy and to ensure stability.
