Cost Overruns and Schedule Delays   Consider that your current technology doesn't tell you how to support your workforce in being more reliable in meeting budget and schedule. You're left to guess.

Other issues that affect cost overruns and schedule delays are employee participation. How automated is your current technology in getting workers involved with the planning process and describing their tasks? Our technology makes it easy.

Once the tasks are assigned, how does it make sure that your employees are set up to succeed in completing those tasks on-time, on-budget, and within spec? Identifying whether employees are set up to succeed is a reported metric within our technology. And if a team is not set up to succeed, our technology will help ensure that they are before time and monies is spent - that causes reliability in meeting time and money goals.

That's why our technology is so superior to others. If you want a reliable outcome, make sure the people working on the tasks are set up to be reliable in meeting schedule, budget and quality goals.

Give us a call and within five minutes, we’ll tell you specifically how your life, along with the people assigned to do work, can be more productive and supportive when using our proactive technology. (Send request for more info.)

The product that will give you this advantage is called: u2 Leadership Software. It proactively ensures that the teams assigned tasks will perform successful, meaning your project reliably meets budget, schedule and quality goals with technical precision.

Ability to Achieve a High Gross Margin   Consider that your labor hour costs are both a risk and a controlling factor in ensuring your business has the highest Gross Margin possible. For example, Gross Margin decreases when labor hour costs cannot be recovered in terms of revenue, like putting effort into a sale that never happens. How labor hours are assigned to potential revenue sources become risk factors, and they must be properly managed to ensure a High Gross Margin. There is a term called "resource loading," meaning hours someone is working on task, like pursuing revenue opportunities. Hours on a task when translated through a employee rate equals monies spent. If your resource load has a large amount of hours of missed revenue opportunities, your Gross Margin will suffer because money has been spent without a financial return.

Our technology helps you identify and manage your revenue pipelines in terms of multiple stages of risk, where each stage allows you to determine how much risk and resource loading (or money being spent) is acceptable in order to go onto the next stage. Each stage within the pipeline indicates a reduction of risk, until the latter stages are tasks that directly create revenue for the business. Our technology is designed to manage the various stages of risk within a revenue pipeline.

If you want to maximize your Gross Margin, we suggest creating and resource loading one or more revenue pipelines immediately. Our technology automates this process and tracks resource loading as compared to Gross Margin risk. This needs to be visible and tracked regularly within your organization.

Your pipeline should accurately capture your marketing and sales plan and be reflected back into the documents. With our technology, you can identify trends of resource loading that have a high risks of ever resulting in revenue. If so, we suggest you make course corrections and consciously manage that risk.

Understanding the flow of labor hours versus money within the pipeline is vital for all managers and supervisors within your organization. If you want an easy, automated approach to creating and managing your revenue pipeline to yield the highest Gross Margin possible, investigate our approach.

Give us a call and within 5 minutes, we’ll tell you specifically how our automated revenue pipeline approach is simple and powerful for creating wealth within a business. (Send request for more info.)

Lack of Performance as a Chronic Condition   Consider that your current technology doesn't have the intelligence to know how to support you in handling these problems at their core. That’s why our technology has the methodology to ensure that core issues are permanently addressed, preventing this chronic condition from continuing.

Our technology focuses on your team to be the owner of the problem and use their combined knowledge, skills and motivation to solve it. Less than that type of solution is a bandage and results in chronic poor performance behavior. Are you using bandages with your current technology? Do they take ownership and do they solve it?

It doesn’t mean that your team doesn’t need outside help, but it does mean that they understood the type of help they need and can manage that help, to support their own solution. It must be their own solution, or else this issue will reoccur in another form of chronic poor performance. Our technology has the ability to support your teams in setting up the problem so it can be solved. Our technology uses a unique Risk Mitigation Strategy that supports the team in combining their experience, skills and motivation to solve the problem. The trick to solving any difficult problem first starts with knowing the right question to ask - that's the key to our automation approach.

Give us a call and within 5 minutes, we’ll tell you specifically how our technology makes ensure you ask the right questions to your team to ensure they have the ability to consistently solve performance issues at their core. (Send request for more info.)

Problems with People, Situations or Circumstances  

Consider that no matter who you like as an authority in the field, from Napoleon Hill to John Maxwell, from “The Laws of Success” first published in 1928 to the multitude of success and leadership books currently on the market, there are three reoccurring, consistent themes: (1) manage your attitude, (2) choose a personal belief system that supports you, and (3) keep on a path of self-awareness and integrity. This all begins and ends with your inner communication.

 

"Talking to Yourself," by Dr. Pamela Butler, emphasizes that anxiety from negative self talk is a serious issue for anyone, but especially when you are under the strain of getting results on-time, on-budget or meeting that almost unachievable bottom-line goal. And there is a common remedy described throughout the popular literature that the High Self Solution Primer uses to support you.

 

Give us a call and within five minutes, we’ll tell you specifically how you make problems with people, situations or circumstances easier and more effective to deal with. (Send request for more info.)

 Teams Not Meeting Goals   Consider the statement made by David Schwarz in his book, “The Magic of Thinking Big*”, the basic rule for winning is, “Success depends on the support of other people. The only hurtle between you and what you want is the support of other people.” The Team Support Guide is designed to get the support you need from your team.

We offer a tool that provides an interactive question and answer experience to help you discover a more unbiased version of your team's capability in supporting you and achieving results. This unbiased version leads to unleashing the employee superheroes within your team.?

Our technology focuses on providing core support, along with specific tips on handling situations from the inside out. It helps the middle manager maintain balance, remember his or her strengths when dealing with strong personalities and lead from a place of positive potential.

That’s what our leadership technology does and if you give us a call, within 5 minutes we’ll tell you exactly how it does it. (Send request for more info.)

Corporate Knowledge Lost Forever  

Consider that not only is time, money, but so is knowledge! This is a journal system, meaning privacy for each team member entering data into the journal. Each journal can be locked. Why is privacy important? Sometimes mistakes don't need to be advertized to all. Additionally, people need to write down ideas, issues and solutions in a unfiltered way. This process catalyzes genius in thought and ideas.

 

When people are asked to contribute to a group journal, they have a wealth of ideas and writings that they have already created to constructively edit and share. The lessons learned journal also allows for group sharing and data collection through your organization's existing email system. A member shares specific entries with others voluntarily. This allows for intellectual property to accumulated fast and efficiently.

 

The Lessons Learned Journal is a visual journal entry system consisting of intellectual data of what worked and didn't work to help you make better decisions from past successes and failures.

End-of-the-Day Results   Consider that at the end-of-the-day, it's a person's ability to adapt, synergize with other peers and perform with consistency that will reliably deliver results and meet expectations. Use our simple PPAT approach to make sure that people can stay at their peak, day after day, month after month, independent of the unforeseen and unexpected.

Until this evolutionary technique, an individual or team could easily “feel” victimized by unexpected situations and circumstances, resulting in failed expectations, lengthened timelines and financial stress. That’s over!

Having a "Good" Budget   Consider that in order to ensure that you create a "good" budget, you must consider the people spending the budget. In all cases, the budget must support the organization's needs, meaning the budget must allow for the people spending the budget to be successful in supporting those needs. The bottom-line: a good budget provides the lowest dollar figure that still causes reliable performance in meeting goals and objectives of the organization.

The overall goal in optimizing a budget is to understand the risks associated with each line item. Our approach is to not only to help you to quickly and accurately assess the "fat" and "lean" within the budget, but know how to strengthen it (reduce cost and increase value) with mathematical certainty. It allows the budget review team team to have the ability to objectively know the strong points, find the weak points and learn how to make the entire budget more efficient while increasing the quality of service.

We offer a specific science designed to find how to optimize while either maintain or increase value. This is done objectively, scientifically and with very powerful automation. It also means that the organization has an approach to ensure it meets the desired margins.

This technology offers a is a very straight-forward, seven step approach that is automated, versatile and integrates with your existing systems/processes.

And when weaknesses or opportunities are found in the budget, it guides a review team through the process of optimizing your budget.

Winning a Contract   Consider that in order to ensure that you win a bid, you must have the best value for the price. In government, you must have the lowest value for the minimum capability to perform successfully. If that sounds confusing, well, that's how the government ensures they don't overpay, at least in theory. The bottom-line: lowest bid with reliable performance is the goal to ensure you have a successful, winning bid.

The overall goal in optimizing a bid is to understand the risks associated with each deliverable/WBS element. Our approach is to not only to help you to quickly and accurately assess risk, but know how to strengthen it (reduce cost and increase value) with mathematical certainty. It allows the proposal team to have the ability to objectively know the strong points, find the weak points and learn how to make the entire proposal more cost efficient while increasing the quality of service.

We offer a specific science designed to find how to optimize the offer while maintaining or increasing the value. This is done objectively, scientifically and with very powerful automation. It also means that the company has an approach to ensure it meets the desired profit margin for fixed price contracts or ensure reliable, quality performance for cost plus award fee contracts.

This technology offers a is a very straight-forward, seven step approach that is automated, versatile and integrates with your existing systems/processes. It's based on using a very advanced Alignment algorithm and an easy to follow green/yellow/red dashboard. It quickly and non-intrusively does the bid assessment. And when weaknesses or opportunities are found in the proposal, it guides a proposal team through the process of strengthening the bid.

De-Motivated, Unengaged Employees   Consider that in order to know anyone’s personal value system, they need to tell you. In order to understand how to best utilize someone's strengths, they need to tell you. If they don't tell you, you are guessing, at best.

Until now, guessing was the best your business could do. Unfortunately, your guess is only valid for that day, not tomorrow or any of the following. Someone's strengths change with experience and training. The things anyone views motivationally important to them constantly change, especially as they achieve them.

It's great if management/leadership has the insight to support their workforce in best utilizing their strengths and aligning their personal motivational value system to the needs of the business. If they don't, then each employee needs to do it on their own. OUR APPROACH ALLOWS THEM TO DO IT ON THEIR OWN - THEY ARE THE EXPERTS ABOUT THEMSELVES.

If the way someone is treated, consciously or unconsciously, doesn't utilize their strengths or is so opposed to their personal value system that they can't work things out on their own, they'll eventually leave the company. And while working, they'll be looking for other companies that are more in alignment with their capability and motivational needs. That’s not good, especially if when they leave, they leave with the corporate knowledge of their job and potential customer relationships.

Capability and motivation self-assessment is about making the alignment of an employee’s strengths and personal value system to business needs using common sense.

Give us a call and within 5 minutes, we’ll tell you specifically how to align your employees’ strengths and personal value system to needs of your business. (Send request for more info.)

The product that will give you this advantage is called: Peak Performance and Alignment Template. In 15 minutes, the alignment is done. It’s that simple and it yields all the benefits of an employee consistently motivated to do good work.

Performance Reviews that Aren't Working   Consider that the review may not create enough value to the participants to want to attend another. Make performance reviews about peak performance and the enthusiasm to achieve it. If you investigate this potential motivational gap, you can discover the key to making reviews valuable to all concerned.

What would happen if the review measurably ensured the mutual success of the person being reviewed as well as the business? Measurable success meaning objective analysis to ensuring reliable outcomes. In order to understand mutual success, you need to know how the person being reviewed contributes to the success of the business - that's the business side. But it doesn’t stop there; you also need to know more about the person’s strengths and personal value system in terms of his or her business expectations. That’s when you start to have a better handle on managing motivation.

The performance review needs to identify gaps and be able to resolve them with reliable certainty. Performance reviews are problem solving sessions based on the gap analysis done. So, you need this information at your fingertips to support your discussions. We provide an easy approach to do the gap analysis and resolve any problems identified.

These are the basics of a performance review. It’s about the business needs and the individual needs. Constructive dialogue about both needs to pinpoint issues and resolve them, satisfying both parties. Do this, and both the person giving the review and the person receiving it will go into and leave the review very motivated.

That’s the goal and if you give us a call, within 5 minutes we’ll tell you how that goal is achieved. (Send request for more info.)

The product that will give you this advantage is called: Peak Performance and Alignment Template. It provides you the data, does the gap analysis and facilities problem resolution using one simple form.
