Corporate Dashboard Design and Implementation Packages

For Small to Medium Size Businesses

Dashboards frame a business and/or department to create focus, accountability and success. An expertly designed dashboard can have an enormous impact on a business and its culture. We provide three standard packages to help implement powerful dashboards, KPIs and metrics that will make everyone accountable and drive results. Done right they will improve your culture, managers and results in all areas. Our methods include a mix of training, coaching and consulting. There is an art to designing dashboards and internal managers can never do this well. A expert is needed who is not stuck in the current way of thinking and has broad business experience. 

 

 Training Alone

The “Do It Yourself” (DIY) Option For Tight Budgets Only


Training Plus Professional Coaching

 

Full Service  Training and Help At Each Step

(We guarantee the end result)

 

Note: All designs and KPIs are software agnostic and so can be used with any software later. We highly recommend using only a single spreadsheet for the first 3-6 months to focus on the business issues, KPIs, people and performance issues, not the software issues, which can get in the way of the important business factors. We have decades of experience creating dashboards that will impact your company and a proprietary process that can guarantee results.

AirTight Management is a Comprehensive System That Solves Most of Your Management Problems

 

The Four Systems:
1. Strategic Planning System,
2. Performance, Accountability and Merit System,
3. Dashboards & Metrics (for the corporation and each department or division),
4. Strategic Budgeting

This page describes each of the first four systems in some detail as well as typical symptoms of not having these systems to help diagnose which ones you need. You can also call (508) 381-8013 to get a free 30 minute diagnosis based on your company's specific challenges. This audio training set provides the foundation. The added Implementation Kit and License includes about 200 supporting files.

What If One Framework & Philosophy Could Solve ALL Your Management Problems?

 

Strategy, Performance, Metrics, Budgeting, People Issues, Process etc.

The AirTight Management System platform is the result of compiling all the best ideas from hundreds of management gurus over the last 20 years into an easy to train framework with six Systems. We have created the most comprehensive management "Operating System" for any small business available today. It contains everything you need to take your company from 6 to 250 employees. AirTight Management is the first standard ever for internal management systems and each component is practical and easy to implement in days or weeks, not years. Management and leadership are arts that cannot be trained entirely but this framework greatly increases corporate value creation, communications and success.

Other books and courses address only small slices of the problem and never provide a holistic philosophy that can address all management issues. This system is a complete "how to" road map to get it all done.

After five years of effort and testing we have assembled the first comprehensive internal management system standard platform ever created. In some ways it is like Einstein's "Unified Field Theory" as it ties all things that make a corporation successful together into one complete framework that is trainable. 

What We Promise AirTight Management Will Do For Your Company
If You Implement It Well:


  1. Validate and greatly improve your Strategic Plan, brand and value proposition and help you communicate this better to employees, customers and other stakeholders. You will gain more market share and retain it longer-term.
  2. Boost the performance of every department and individual in your organization. In fact research has already proven an increase of over 50% in corporate value creation by just one component of one System!
  3. Be able to leverage every manager's time better by running departments and products on autopilot
  4. Develop employees to their maximum potential by leveraging the science of psychology and key success principles proven over the last 3 decades by the latest in brain science.
  5. See changes coming in your market a year before your competition and predict results better.
  6. Smoothly grow and get through growth plateaus that stop or stall 90% of companies
  7. Attract and keep the best people and maintain that fire in the belly that generates superior results

 

AirTight Management's Strategic Planning Kit is your #1 tool for success

SYSTEM #1: AirTight Strategic Planning System 

 

The Strategic Plan is the foundation of your company that makes all the decisions about "what" you will do long term and some strategies for "how" it will get done (a shorter-term Business Plan). Do not confuse the two. A Strategic Plan should ideally be completed BEFORE you start work on a business plan. Business plans include more of the "How" you will accomplish things in a 1-3 year time frame. Strategic Plans set up the company for 5 or more years. 

This seven audio CD set provides not just the three Systems training, process maps and key tools but also a license to use over 200 supporting files on the CD data DISC including:

- Sample Strategic Plans - Agendas - Competitive Mapping Tools
- Printable Worksheets - Blank Templates - Marketing and Messaging Tools

A quality, professional Strategic Planning Facilitator will cost from $10,000 to $25,000. With this complete strategic planning kit you can get many of the same benefits at a fraction of the cost. You can create an optimum strategic plan and achieve superior results for your company using this kit and process.

The Strategic Planning Process is the most critical process in your organization. A poorly designed Strategic Plan can create insurmountable problems in your business and often squanders opportunities that you are never presented again. To get the most out of your management team you need a tightly choreographed strategic planning process that will allow maximum collaboration to leverage all the wisdom, experience and knowledge in your business.

Creating a good strategic plan can and should take weeks of collaboration. One way to reduce that time - and the resulting costs - is a better understanding of the process and elements of strategic planning. This kit will help you understand and implement a good Strategic Plan by laying out best practices to go through this process. The kit contains seven audio CDs as well as sample plans, blank templates, printable worksheets and even agendas for the key meetings all companies should have.

Benefits of this Strategic Planning Process and Kit:
  • Maximize communication and collaboration to tap into all the experience and knowledge of the entire team
  • Insure everyone on your team is up to speed on all the strategic issues, risks to manage and interdependencies
  • Develop a set of annual and quarterly objectives that are realistic but also stretch the team and company's overall performance
  • Guarantee close examination of the competitive landscape and understanding of it by the management team
  • Enhance innovation of the company and yet manage the risk that is always the flip side of innovation
  • Tap into the power of the subconscious mind and proven organizational psychology principles
  • Insure that each department and all its members are "owners" of their part of the plan with total buy-in 
  • Document everything to make sure there is complete accountability by department, and subsequently for each person who's individual goals will be mapped into the corporate goals in a way they can understand

 

 




























Signs that your organization needs a better strategic plan and process:

  1. Management team cannot ALL state clearly where the company is going toward at least one year out and quarterly corporate priorities
  2. Trouble hiring quality senior people, or an inability to keep the best people
  3. Lots of competition for resources which causes friction between people and departments
  4. Employees avoid making simple decisions, taking responsibility and taking reasonable risks - putting the "monkey on their boss's back"
  5. Employees think management is poor and usually fail to develop in their own capabilities
  6. There is a lack of appropriate corporate culture and commitment and festering morale issues which may not be obvious to management
  7. Lack of increasing market share and revenues
  8. Being a follower, always behind competitors in a market which prevents good margins
 

 

SYSTEM #2: Performance, Accountability and Merit System  (PAMS)


This system also provides the training, process maps, tools and audio CDs with a license for over 200 supporting files on a CD DISC you need to smoothly implement these systems. The PAMS system trains your management team in best practices for management. There are five styles of management that every manager should know how to use to be effective. Knowing when to use each is critical to success.

 

Benefits that implementing the PAM System will create in your company:

1. There will be completely clear lines of accountability and expectations on each department and person.

2. The CEO and senior management will not have to track every detail, interaction and ripple effect of changes to inform everyone else.

3. The management team will begin to gel as a true team, working together without politics and finger pointing, to accomplish strategic objectives.

4. The management will begin to value and spend time working "on" the business, not just "in" the business to improve results every month and quarter.

5. There will be complete buy-in and commitment from management and individuals to deliver key priorities. projects and tasks that are generated by the System #1 Strategic Planning process and these will flow down to all employees.

6. Management team members will grow and develop as professionals and also have the language, models and tools to educate and coach their people to higher performance

 

Robert Rodgers and John Hunter concluded that companies whose CEOs demonstrated high commitment to these management practices showed, on average, a 56% gain in productivity. Companies with CEOs who showed low commitment only saw a 6% gain in productivity.

 

 

 

Symptoms That You Are Behind the
Curve in This Area:

  1. People do not make deadlines and goals
  2. The business is not improving steadily
  3. There is lots of "finger pointing" and blaming of others making it hard to sort out root problems
  4. People expect raises and can't show results
  5. Departments have constant misunderstandings about coordinated efforts (low accountability)
  6. The CEO is the nexus of all information and responsible for coordinating everyone & Mgt. Team does not work together without him/her
  7. Managers constantly putting the monkey on the CEOs back and not making key decisions they should be able to

 

 

SYSTEM #3: Dashboards and Business Intelligence

Preparing your business to scale requires that you develop good internal metrics for each area of the business. Very few companies do this well and it is actually fairly simple to do and makes a huge difference. Dashboards allow you to leverage your all your managers’ time better, identify problems quickly, set performance goals, hold people accountable and many more wonderful things that will help your business grow faster and with less cost and risk. It is "Running the business by the numbers" so management time can be focused on key issues, not day-to-day activities.  This audio training reviews the proper way to design and implement a Corporate Dashboard and one for each department.

Typically a business needs these in any department over five people and should use them on day one in any sales, production or operations area. Dashboards must measure four types of numbers that typical accounting and budgeting measurements do not capture. Dashboards create a time series of data that is very strategic and helps project and improve your business. Dashboards are one of the AirTight Management Six Systems that will allow you to move your company from good to great.

Benefits of Implementing A Dashboard and Business Intelligence System

  1. You and your managers will have the internal department tools to monitor and measure department and employee performance
  2. You will develop an in-depth understanding of your business economics and productivity few businesses have for competitive advantage You will allow even a poor manager to perform well because you will have a system which will handle most issues
  3. You will be able to spend far less time on day-to-day activities and focus on where the real problems and opportunities are for management to work to improve
  4. You will have quality measures for each department and be able to properly balance the priorities of cost, productivity and quality as appropriate for your market and customer base
  5. Your business will enable constant and never ending improvement (CANI or Kaizen) so that your business improves and evolves monthly and quarterly
  6. You will virtually eliminate politics, finger pointing and wasted effort and friction in the management team

 

 


    Symptoms That You Are Behind the
    Curve in This Area:

  1. You don't understand the actual cost and profit and unit economics of your business
  2. You do not know the cost to acquire a new customer
  3. Declining economics/profit of the business
  4. You do not have a plan to improve costs, sales and profits
  5. You spend lots of time discussing staffing needs and new hires with managers
  6. You have surprises in the business that creep up and hurt performance

 

BONUS: SYSTEM #4: Strategic Budgeting 


This system also provides the training, for a innovation driven budgeting process to allocate your resources for the best return on investment. Most companies let the accounting department control and define the budgeting process. This is often a mistake because their only ability is around cost control, not opportunities and innovations. A growth company must have the people who understand the markets, risks, technology and other factors participate. This budgeting must also be highly integrated with the Strategic Planning process. This license DISC includes sample budgeting, the best report formatting, process diagrams for each budgeting cycle and maintaining alignment monthly and quarterly, as well as proper accountability. 

    Symptoms That You Are Behind the 
    Curve in This Area:

  1. Lack of budgeting process and agreement with defined monthly, quarterly and annual processes
  2. Disagreements about budget allocations between departments
  3. Empire building where individuals or departments feel they must compete for resources instead of justifying their own resources, without any limitation based on their own merit and ability to generate revenue
  4. Lack of understanding of the Return on Investment (ROI) products, departments and markets create.

WHAT MAKES A SUCCESSFUL COMPANY?

You've heard the saying "you can't build a house without a solid foundation". The same is true of a business. Without a solid Strategic Plan, almost any business will crumble and fail eventually. Often businesses are even destroyed by their own success because they do not have the infrastructure to support growth. These traps can be avoided by good strategic planning because multiple scenarios are typically going to be explored in a good process.

Many businesses fail because they do not have the infrastructure to grow. These traps can be avoided by these systems

Companies and owners often lose everything they worked years for because they have the wrong strategy, market or focus.

To build a successful business you need to be differentiated and a thought leader in your market - ahead of what the customers are asking for today. All the tools you need to stretch your business beyond commodity are included in the AirTight Management's Kit.

To get the most out of your management team you need a tightly choreographed strategic planning process that will allow maximum collaboration to leverage all the wisdom, experience and knowledge in your business.

 

DOES YOUR COMPANY NEED A STRATEGIC PLAN?

Signs that your organization needs a re-invigorated strategic plan:
  • Management team can not ALL state clearly where the company is going toward at least one year out and quarterly corporate priorities
  • Trouble hiring quality senior people
  • Lots of competition for resources which causes friction
  • Employees avoid responsibility and taking reasonable risks
  • Employees think management is poor
  • There is a lack of appropriate corporate culture and commitment and significant turnover

WHAT IS A STRATEGIC PLAN?

The Strategic Plan is the foundation of your company that makes all the decisions about "what" you will do long-term and the strategies for "How" it will get done.

The Strategic Plan is also a framework and filter for the decisions everyone makes in your company daily, and provides the basis for more detailed planning of weekly and monthly decisions and priorities. Without a good Strategic Plan in place you can be sure people will be making many poor decisions that are based on their own personal perspectives instead of a corporate perspective.

The Strategic Plan also helps to explain the business to others in the organization to inform, motivate and getting them involved. It builds unity and passion in the management team and even individual employees. The Strategic Plan therefore will get the most out of your management team and allow maximum collaboration to leverage all the wisdom, experience and knowledge to grow your business.

Research has shown that companies with good goal setting systems perform 56% better than companies without such systems in place.

  • The Strategic Planning Process validates and refines your target market(s), value proposition and other strategies of the business across all disciplines including: sales, marketing, finance, product development and operation to optimize the opportunities of the business and minimize risks
  • The Strategic Planning Process will synchronize the internal thinking and priorities of the senior managers and insure they understand many broad business concerns they may not see from their area of the business (department and discipline myopia)
  • The Strategic Plan will create the process to connect long-term vision with medium term corporate objectives in a way that focuses people on the most important issues
  • The Strategic Planning Process will (when done well) tap all the experience of the management team to create a brainstorming and collaboration environment that creates a better solution and improves the business design and success
  • The Strategic Planning Process will connect the timing and insure the proper resources are available to achieve the major corporate objectives one time and one budget
  • The Strategic Planning Process will activate invisible brain functions (proven by neuro science) and reflexes in the subconscious (called the Reticular Activating System) that increases the personal performance of everyone in the organization
  • The Strategic Planning Process will identify challenges and opportunities that might otherwise fester beneath the radar of the CEO and others and become serious problems later...

In fact, the greatest value of completing this Strategic Planning Process is not even the resulting plan itself! It is the energy you have now generated with your team as you worked together to create an achievable plan on how you will build a great company together!.

WHAT MAKES A SUCCESSFUL COMPANY?

You've heard the saying "you can't build a house without a solid foundation". The same is true of a business. Without a solid Strategic Plan, almost any business will crumble and fail eventually. Often businesses are even destroyed by their own success because they do not have the infrastructure to support growth. These traps can be avoided by good strategic planning because multiple scenarios are typically going to be explored in a good process.

Other times, businesses fail because they do not have the infrastructure to grow. These traps can also be avoided by good strategic planning as some scenarios are explored. This exploration also deepens the understanding and synergy, not to mention teamwork, of any management team.

Hope is not a strategy! Many businesses rely on gut instinct and a "whiteboard strategy" that gets erased the next week. Strategic Planning is by far the most critical process in your organization. It is necessary not only so that you don't lose sight of your ultimate objectives, but also to create complete synergy and understanding of objectives and priorities for everyone in the company.

Companies and owners often lose everything they worked years for because they have the wrong strategy, market or focus. This is often because they do not do the right strategic planning process but just go with the "flow of the market". Well the problem is that most everyone else is going with the flow too. Therefore you end up with many competitors and a commodity product and/or service with commodity pricing because most competitors converge on the same position in the market over time.

To build a successful business you need to be differentiated and a thought leader in your market - ahead of what the customers are asking for today. All the tools you need to stretch your business beyond commodity are included in the AirTight Management's Strategic Planning Kit.

Products

Big companies literally pay millions of dollars for software to do these things with ERP, Business Intelligence (BI) and Performance Management Systems (PM). You can do this far more cost effectively by using simple conventions instead of expensive and complex software. These Systems, implemented properly, will raise the performance level of your management team to a world class, professional management team and generate superior results. Generally any company with more than seven people needs Systems #1 to #3. Implement these Six Systems well and your company will likely dominate its market niche because most companies do not do these things well.

AirTight Management - Corporate Growth and Foundational Management Concepts, Models & Vision

AirTight Management - Corporate Growth and Foundational Management Concepts, Models & VisionGrowing a company requires very different skills and practices than starting a company. Less than one in one hundred companies will reach $5,000,000 in sales. More often than not a founder or early CEO will be replaced by a ?professional manager? to achieve this. This is not necessary when proper training and shifting of management style is implemented in time. Once a company reaches between twelve and twenty five employees it must begin to implement professional management best practices.

These come from over 75 years of management science developed by the best business minds of the last century. Do not make the mistake of trying to reinvent the wheel ? learn from others first. This training explains not just what these best practices for growth are but when and why they are needed so that all employees in the company can understand and buy into doing these properly. You will learn the physical limits of managers, communications and more and how to get around them. This CD will open up your mind to the hidden traps of growth that must be averted with careful training and learning in advance.

AirTight Management System #1 - The Strategic Planning Process Roadmap

AirTight Management System #1 - The Strategic Planning Process Roadmap This AirTight Management training CD reviews the best practices processes for developing a superior corporate strategic plan. Strategic planning is an art but there are many procedural elements that can be used in a structure to facilitate the best results from any management team. A good strategic facilitator can cost $10,000 to $25,000 for a two day strategic planning session. These can be worth every dime but many smaller companies cannot afford this level professional experience and wisdom from a experienced CEO.

This training lays out the three step, collaborative process you can use with your own team over a period of weeks to develop and optimize a long-term plan for your company. This System is specially designed to be practical for companies with between ten and several hundred employees. We also offer a complete Implementation Kit with four additional CDs and a data CD with forms, templates and example plans.

AirTight Management System #1 - Obtaining Strategic Advantage Through Positioning and Competitive Mapping

AirTight Management System #1 - Obtaining Strategic Advantage Through Positioning and Competitive MappingThere is one and only one factor that drives the financial success of most growth businesses. Everything else comes as a result of doing this well. This is ?differentiation? or more accurately positioning for competitive advantage and differentiation. Commodity companies do not grow rapidly and can not command high margins and profits to finance growth and new products. Only companies that offer something unique, properly targeted to a niche of customers with a compelling need will achieve superior success and growth.

This audio training set lays out the best competitive positioning processes available today. These techniques are taught in the top Ivy League business school?s MBA programs for hundreds of thousands of dollars. This System has been optimized for practical and easy use at small to medium size companies. It is guaranteed to improve your business and generate ideas you have never had before.

AirTight Management System #1 - Innovation and Risk Management

AirTight Management System #1 - Innovation and Risk ManagementThe saying ?Innovate or die? is more true with each passing year. Companies must evolve their products, services and processes to maintain competitiveness and gain market share. Sometimes they must completely morph their business models. This audio training is part of our complete strategic planning kit but available separately as a standalone CD and MP3 download.

We will review over a dozen structured ways to drive innovation, and an innovation culture inside your organization. Of course any time there is innovation there is also risk. Market acceptance risk, technology risk, financial risk, distribution risk and other types can all be easily handled. We will teach you a simple system to access risk and keep your management team on top of each risk easily using a Risk Landscape Map which can be used to look at new products, your entire business or even more granular decisions that should be reviewed collaboratively. Risk analysis and management are a fundamental part of any strategic planning which can make the difference between success and failure. When you know the downside is covered well you can take more risk and reap more rewards.

AirTight Management System #3 - Dashboards and Business Intelligence Needed to Scale a Business

AirTight Management System #3 - Dashboards and Business Intelligence Needed to Scale a BusinessPreparing your business to scale requires that you develop good internal metrics for each area of the business. Very few companies do this well and it is actually fairly simple and makes a huge difference. Dashboards allow you to leverage your all your managers? time better, identify problems quickly, set performance goals, hold people accountable and many more wonderful things that will help your business grow faster and with less cost and risk. This audio training reviews the proper way to design and implement a Corporate Dashboard and one for each department.

Typically a business needs these in any department over five people and should use them on day one in any sales, production or operations area. Dashboards must measure four types of numbers that typical accounting and budgeting measurements do not capture. Dashboards create a time series of data that is very strategic and helps project and improve your business. Dashboards are one of the AirTight Management Six Systems that will allow you to move your company from good to great.

AirTight Management System #4 - Strategic Budgeting - Empowering and Growing Managers and Projecting Accurately

AirTight Management System #4 - Strategic Budgeting - Empowering and Growing Managers and Projecting AccuratelyBudgeting is generally run by the accounting department and looked at as a cost control and tracking function. That?s what bean counters are supposed to do. Right? Wrong! Strategic Budgeting is a much more powerful and collaborative system that will generate superior results in any company. Strategic Budgeting is opportunity and revenue driven, instead of cost driven. It focuses attention on sales drivers and leverages that experience, market position and opportunities created by a good strategic plan.

Strategic Budgeting is done in each department from the manager up as a collaborative process which is tied in to annual strategic planning and objectives. Strategic Budgeting will be far more accurate and creates more innovation, ownership of the results and sales success. Strategic Budgeting also grows managers into leaders as successful companies must develop their own teams. Turn your budgeting process into an exciting and innovation generating process that will further corporate goals.
