Mission and Values

Our mission at Douglas Hammel & Associates is to maximize your profits. We assist you in achieving this goal by providing high quality, results driven business counseling and consulting services. We focus on adding our unique expertise to yours to increase your management skill, improve your decision making, and create maximum efficiency in your systems. We counsel/consult with a wide variety of businesses both large and small in all phases of business development. We have served over 3,000 clients since 1991.


It is a given in today’s complex business world that no single manager can be expert in all skill areas. In a small business the owner typically has a high degree of technical skill but lacks general business management knowledge; in a larger business or one experiencing hardship or growth, managers lack the expertise in strategic planning and team building to efficiently and effectively solve problems and implement change.


The good news is that there are no “new” business problems. Every problem that has occurred or will occur in your business has occurred before many times in other businesses. But for every business manager there is a first time to solve each of these potential problems. The only question is: Will you solve them at the lowest cost in both time and resources? With our experience of serving over 3,000 clients since 1991, we can help you get to the core issues quickly and implement solutions with dynamic results.


Hiring a counselor/consultant can mean many things. You may need expert help on a short-term basis to solve a single problem, or you may need to begin the long-term development process for growth. You may have a few key employees who need technical training or a hundred workers on your manufacturing floor struggling with an outdated system. Whatever your situation, Douglas Hammel & Associates can help you get the results you need.


Our process begins with listening, finding out from your perspective what has occurred in your business and what you want to accomplish. We then move on to analysis and problem solving dialogue, digging deeper to examine the relevant functional areas of your business that need improvement. When we understand the issues hindering your success, we make recommendations, and then guide you through the process of implementing solutions. Some solutions require an investment in training either through our associates or a qualified third party. Our process can take as little as one hour or extend over several years, depending on the complexity of the issues involved and your interest in a complete business development process. Our promise to you is that we will not recommend any service unless we are confident that it will help your business. And the depth of counseling/consulting is always within your control.


Please take a few minutes to read our entire portfolio. I’m certain we can assist you in achieving your goals.
