The art of positive disruption.

In order to thrive, all businesses need to work efficiently. Controlling cost is essential to improve profit margins and there are always areas in every organisation where unnecessary expenditure can be eradicated. Adapt offer pragmatic and professional advice in a variety of sectors. We analyse current performances and identify instant and substantial savings as well as areas where a change of mindset will bring about greater internal harmony. Our independence means we instigate this positive disruption, objectively and without allegiances.


Over £4m of Scottish Enterprise investment for clients


Over £3m worth of Research & Development tax credits

Our can-do attitude also extends to bringing money into businesses. In the past seven years we have helped secure over £4m of Scottish Enterprise investment for our clients as well as over £3m worth of Research & Development tax credits from The Treasury. This money is available right now to help you expand and develop your business. The Adapt team has the experience and proven track record to secure it.

Some of the benefits we provide-

Bring experienced eyes into a business and take a ‘helicopter’ view

Mentor existing management and senior teams

Add value by generating money and improving profitability

Create an internal ‘respect culture’

Offer a large network of contacts should additional support be required

Open up opportunities for growth and achieve ‘hard goals’

Help to manage problem employees


Every organisation is different and no simple formula fits all circumstances. Adapt have developed several bespoke methods that with the investment of time and maintenance, can achieve the goals that will sustain your business today, before bringing about the transformation that will ensure it is more profitable tomorrow.

We always begin by spending a day or two on site to gain a rigorous understanding of your work practices. With this diligence complete, we then produce a full report on the goals you want to focus on, as well as other issues we feel will benefit the long term future of your business.

Our business review focuses on

  • An analysis of the workflow processes within your company
  • A systems appraisal covering both business and IT
  • An evaluation of the profitability of your business
  • An analysis of how efficiently your business currently performs
  • Which improvements will make a substantive difference to your bottom line

Once we have jointly agreed your ‘hard goals’, Adapt develop an action plan to deliver the positive outcome you are looking for. In some cases this might be just be sorting out a specific problem area within the business. In other cases, it might mean a complete re-engineering of the entire organisation. It really depends what we both find under the bonnet.


People say the nicest things.

Over the past seven years Adapt have worked with more than fifty UK based SME’s of all different sizes, in all different sectors. In every single case we have been able to increase their efficiency and profitability. As you might expect not every company that we have assisted is willing to publicly declare that they utilised external help. Anonymity is their prerogative. Below you can read testimonials from some of the organisations where Adapt’s expertise has made a positively disruptive difference.


Expensive? Perhaps.
Invaluable? Definitely.

We don’t haggle on price, because we don’t have to. Our business model is built on a track record of adding value to the balance sheet of our clients and our success rate in doing this is 100%.

Although we don’t fiddle about with our fees, we can be flexible. We can charge a day rate, we can look at a percentage share of what we save your business, or we can combine the two. (Most businesses choose the latter.) Integrity is one of our fundamental core values and the price we agree at the outset is the price that you will be billed for. We don’t do surprises.

In our experience the subject of money is best discussed face to face over a coffee. On that basis we would be delighted to arrange an informal, no cost meeting.
