OUR SKILLS

We focus on our areas of unique competency.

BUSINESS STRATEGY
Developing "Blue Ocean" strategies is what we are known for. Creating new waters where there are fewer competitors, and ground breaking opportunities.
BIZ DEV AND SALES GROWTH
Business theory is only relevant when you can transform that into sales and profit growth. We do this with you.
PRODUCT DEV'T AND MANAGEMENT
Who is your client "really?" Is it the same person you sold to last year, or next year?
INVESTING, FINANCE AND CAPITAL
Capital is the lifeblood of companies, not before you have proven a business model, but to help you grow. Once you business model is correct, capital will chase you. Or, as we say: "investors only get on the train when it is leaving the station."

OUR SERVICES

Dealing with people is probably the biggest problem you face.

STRATEGY

The key to success to determining the right road to take, and to be nimble in adjusting your direction.

BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT

Sales and key client relationships most often determine the success or failure of a business.

STRATEGIC ALLIANCES

Alliances and partnerships that take advantage of technology, content, product, service and/or geographic advantage can generate enormous value for all partners. We identify and build those alliances, globally.

FUNDING

Capital is essential in most businesses, as it the way you manage your funds.

OPERATIONS

Excellent operations is not a magical concept. It simply involves ongoing attention to detail and continual processes for improvement.

PRODUCT MANAGEMENT

Agile methods for creating, extending and retiring products are essential to implementing a serious growth strategy.

Musing and Thoughts on Business

"..., and so it goes."

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. REALLY?

ld adages die hard. My favorite sneakers (excluding my red velvet Clydes), were the ever reliable Converse All Stars.  Yes, and they made a comeback only 35 years later or so after its hey day (http://qz.com/129238/how-converse-went-from-bankruptcy-to-a-1-4-billion-business/). But, was its demise really necessary?  Why didn’t the company “pivot” from its All-American message sooner? My answer: they […]

Science meets the real world.

Put the right person in the right role.  It will ALWAYS work out better for you than you think.

A word to the wise.

Never bad advice.

Motivation!

Simple realities are the best realities.

First and foremost: hire smart people!

This simple phrase is an important message for all executives and managers.

Execution requires repetition!

As Bruce Lee famously said: I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times. So many great ideas lie in the dust heap of history because there has been lack of persistence and follow-through. Find and build the right team.  Find […]
