from the President
During the past 30 years, I have honed
my skills with the best companies in their industries
and gained in-depth knowledge of highly effective best
practices, through both their successes and failures.
I have learned through working with these giants, how
to apply decades of proven business processes to help
drive the success of your business, take out the cost
of poor quality and improve efficiencies. As a consultant
to many of the top brands, suppliers and retailers,
I can tell you, there is no single answer, but rather
applying a myriad of methods and practices customized
for your business.
Our team has over 100 + years of experience
in the Hardware, Home Improvement and Home Building industries.
In working with both large and small companies; I have never
found the answer to be one single adjustment but I do believe
a critical mistake most make is not listening to the voice
of the customer. Experience has taught me; too many businesses
silo their operations and do not build the proper business
charters. They also fail to bring in the all the business
stakeholders. The ARC team understands the critical elements
to build a successful business plan.
One of my favorite quotes is by Winston Churchill who stated
"plans are nothing. Planning is everything." My
experiences support these words of wisdom. Most all companies
I have worked with can tell you "where they want to go"
but don’t spend the proper time on the planning processes.
More crucial, the focus is lost in not applying the proven
business practices to reach your goal.
In today's market the cost of doing business is escalating
for suppliers, retailers and home builders. The economic crisis
is having a devastating impact on those who do not apply the
best proven methods. Not only do you have to be right but
you need to act with speed. Jack Welch said to me and a group
of GE business leaders, "Do you know of anyone who at
the end of a business plan, said 'I wish I would have done
it slower?" To ensure your company’s growth in
this challenging economy, I believe it is absolutely necessary
to develop a customized planning process with proven best
practices which is executed effectively, efficiently and with
SPEED. Our team can work with you to apply these best practices
to achieve a successful end game.
