Anything but traditional

The traditional business consultancy in Japan is full of Eastern promise. They’ll tell you what they can do for you. They’ll raise revenue. Increase profitability. Eliminate waste. Traditional can seem lip-smackingly good. As they help themselves to their third cup of coffee across the boardroom table, you’re already smiling, as you contemplate your golden future. Except that there’s something they left out of their sales pitch. How? How are they going to achieve all this? Ask them and they become a little coy. They change the subject. At Smart Partners, we set out 8 years ago to change this sorry model. We’re a Japan business consultancy with a difference. And the difference is that our work is:
1.Hands-on  2.Measurable  3.Recordable  4.Practical  5.Visible  6.Effective
Work with us and you can nail us down to specific actions that produce measurable results. Like increased profitability, reduced acquisition time, faster processes, greater efficiency. Unlike some consultancies, we’re not as slippery as Jell-O. We set KPIs. We say ‘do this in a new way and you’ll increase efficiency by 20%’. We help you find the right clients. Then we find the person with the power. The one who’s company seal closes the contracts.
The choice is clear. Eleven pages of documentation and market segmentation flow charts. Or consultancy that gets to know your business intimately, then gives you practical, measurable strategies & tactics for growth. Tradition is dead. You’ll never go back to an ordinary consultancy again.

Clients Voice

-Client's Voice-

Past and present
  • "I have had the pleasure to work with Smart Partners on several occasions and have been impressed by their professionalism and delivery. Working with them has allowed me the opportunity to close critical business gaps and provided a clearly defined repeatable process for testing for my teams. Smart Partners has deep knowledge in both subject content as well as market knowledge."
  • "I brought Smart Partners to my division to help with a few areas: process advisory/workflow re-engineering, industry specific expertise in employment issues in Japan, Japanese language support and deep understanding within the contract business here in Japan. Their sales training helped our people to focus on improved client outcomes, not tasks and how to better prepare for working with customers. I highly recommend Smart Partners."
  • "We contacted Smart Partners to help us with company incorporation, accounting infrastructure, and business / sales consulting to help us grow our new business. Smart Partner's advice and insight on how to generate new business in Japan was eye-opening and helped us to increase activity much faster than expected."
  • "No one knows my business better than me. I didn't work with SmartPartners to lecture me on what I already knew. My reasons for engaging them was to bottle my experience, create repeatable frameworks, KPI dashboards, policies & procedures, on-boarding structure for new sales hires and most importantly, to create a -culture of accountability and urgency amongst my sales teams. Smart Partners worked closely with my people and I was pleased with the clear, measurable return on my investment."
  • "As a Managing director, I focus on measurable results and the bottom line. Smart Partners's, methods were not theoretical or flashy, they were practical, easy to understand and brought agreed results. They worked directly with both my Japanese and Foreign salespeople, to implement changes and give life to training concepts, I can therefore recommend them."
  • "Problem: underperforming business unit and complicated, inefficient processes resulting in a net loss. Solution: Smart Partners came in and analyzed the problem, proposed changes and then worked closely with my people to implement the changes and turned the business around to be growing and profitable - in 6 months. Their people skills and ability to simplify processes in a practical way were well received. They are energizing to work with because they "walk the talk."
