Strategy to Outcomes

Helping Organizations
Make More Progress Faster

Company Philosophy

PragSpective Business Advisors brings a clear, focused vision to small and medium-sized business leaders bogged down by the day-to-day tasks attached to running a company. We help them assess their organization’s current standing, identify gaps, and create plans that are both actionable and accountable, ultimately driving them towards meaningful progress. In time, that progress becomes a cycle constantly helping to push leaders in a focused direction in an effort to achieve their long-term business goals.

Project management brings external expertise to organizations within the healthcare industry. Our assessments result in comprehensive plans pertaining to Electronic Health Record (EHR) Implementation, EHR Optimization, and Change Management.

Process Improvement & Outcomes

Through organizational workflows, quality improvement planning, and the development of value-based outcomes, we help business leaders evaluate and improve business processes while measuring them against performance improvement targets.

What is PragSpective?

Small and medium-sized business owners define themselves by progress. But when the day-to-day reactive tasks of running an organization consume your role, that progress can turn into stagnation. Sometimes, what’s needed most is a focused, pragmatic approach combined with an outside perspective, or in other words, PragSpective. Our expertise helps business leaders get a clear vision of their company, determine priorities, and push toward goals and outcomes.
