Could Your Company Benefit From Implementing a Results-Based System?

Whether you are a small business owner, a CEO leading in a large complex organization, or part of the executive team, The One Page Business Plan® and our Ideal Client Profile can assist you. They efficiently and effectively help get your business plan on one page in a quick and stress-free way.

Plan Development

Your One Page Business Plan is a proven business tool that uniquely links FIVE important business concepts: business planning, marketing, strategy, accountability and execution. It's SIMPLE and it works because:

  • Executives, managers and staff members can have The One Page Business Plan, just a click away.
  • Results for every objective are tracked using online Performance Scorecards that are viewable by supervisors.
  • The critical action plan produces an Online Progress Report.
  • Color codes help you see the status of plans "at a glance."
  • No excuses! As long as your staff has access to a computer, they can update their process weekly!

Performance Management System

One of the most neglected aspects of a business plan is the failure to review the plan -- at least weekly. Reviews leads to action, change,and growth. Our management dashboard gives you a quick visual overview of how your plan lives up to real-world results.

Compare past performance with your target and actuals. Keep track of your action plans anywhere you (or your staff) have an Internet connection. It's all online for you to review.
