Appendix A

All businesses run best when these “Four Decisions™” are made correctly:

  1. People: Build your team’s high-performance culture
  2. Strategy: Build a business model that is profitable and drives growth.
  3. Execution: Stay focused and implement all the critical elements of your strategy.
  4. Cash: Keep a strong cash flow to drive growth.

In pursuit of your goals, we will first identify them clearly to develop and implement your “One Page Strategic Plan.” We will then help align your long-term business goals and the required short-term actions.

As we develop the One Page Strategic Plan, we will identify specific needs within your company related to People, Strategy, Execution, and Cash. As opportunities for business growth arise, we will work together to transfer the necessary skills and knowledge to resolve the situation and maximize the opportunities. During this time, we will identify knowledge gaps and seek to fill them.
