“Getting More with Less” is a quick read for executives and top level managers.  It introduces executives to ways in which they can lead their teams through Creative Meetings to examine performance and costs in every function and for every functional layer of their organization.  The principles apply to any kind of organization whether industrial, commercial, service, hospitality, healthcare, religious, non-profit or government whether local, state or federal government.

“Getting More with Less” introduces executive teams to ‘The Profit Pillar’ and its universal application.  The book helps executives find fresh ways to improve performance while reducing costs even when the organization may already have made major cost reductions.

The book inspires CEOs and their executive teams to implement a series of Creative Meetings that dig deep into the core of the organization at each functional layer.  They focus on “Less” by determining those 20% of factors that make 80% of the impact on throughput and cost.   The examples of organizations who have already applied this approach, reveal how stunning innovation comes from focusing creative thought to break the bonds of the status quo.

7 Steps for Employees to be Successful Quickly: In-Company Mentor Edition”

How does your business prepare new staff for their positions and job responsibilities? They probably get a payroll and benefits orientation. They may sit through videos on company history and policies.

  • focus and energize in-company talent-development teams,

  • establish project plans with the goal of capturing all corporate job content,

We cut to the heart of the matter—providing employees with the training necessary to do their jobs. The IN-Company Mentor approach easily integrates with existing corporate policies without increasing costs. 7 Steps for Employees to Be Successful Quickly is a high-return process capable of transforming your organization.
