You Should Know About Me

Key Strengths

Business Strategy • As well as operational strategy. Good at organizational building • Operational implementation. I am good at financial strategy • Game Changing Strategic Planning • Management Analytics

Key Accomplishments

I have worked with entrepreneurs on just over 5,000 strategic and funding business plans. I get rave reviews for the plans.

I started as a Theoretical Physicist and brought that understanding to business. There I ran both corporate marketing, North American Operations, and Various profit centers all with budgets in the billions.

The purpose of Business Analytics™ is to dramatically shorten the time to revenue for a startup company. The sweet spot is companies in the $2-12 million range initially, although I have used it with companies up to $50,000,000. It is most suitable for businesses that actually meet with clients and sell products and services. It is less effective with retail stores and restaurants, although it can be done in a more limited manner.

In creating Business Analytics™ I integrated the system dynamics and mathematics thinking we used in Physics with the dynamics of a specific company. I start with the process of getting customers, expand to modeling that process, then move to strategic planning, create a business plan, and ultimately create a mathematical predictive model of the company. Results have been stunningly accurate.
