What's Keeping Your Business from Thriving?

Cupertino, California (PressExposure) August 18, 2009 -- Is your business operating like the winning thoroughbred at the Kentucky Derby? Or, does your business look and feel more like a broken-down plow horse? This program will examine two vital distinctions in the world of business: "strategy" and "execution" and how these concepts are inextricably linked not only for mega companies but small businesses as well.

You'll learn more about these concepts, how they apply in your business, and specifically how they can be predictive of future company performance. We will be discussing this not only from the edge of the company, but also examining how central functions within your company impact business execution.

And, you'll learn about a transformative project in the fire truck industry that provides lessons for all. What you will take away from this session
