Performance Improvement Services
Ascendant helps companies improve shareholder value through their strategic and tactical Performance Improvement platform. Ascendant's service seeks to facilitate collaboration between independent companies centered around ethanol company best practices and tactical plant level operational performance improvement. Real financial and operational performance improvement is grounded in the quantitative analysis of company financial and operational performance data.
It is very difficult for independent ethanol management to have the perspective to know where the business is performing well and where it is performing poorly. The best way for the independent mid-size companies to stay long-term competitive against larger agribusiness, food and energy companies is to work together to leverage peer benchmarking and collaboration on key strategic performance initiatives in order to pursue business performance improvement.
