Oftentimes, CEOs and other business leaders take previously traveled paths, without investing the time and resources to assess the potential benefits of setting a new direction.

As the decision-maker in your company, what course do you follow when making that choice?

Operating Blueprints enable CEOs and other leaders to select the right path for their firms and executive teams for measurable execution.

Today, institutions still place the greatest emphasis on financial analysis vs. operational capabilities. While they are essential, such thinking is based on old methods – quarterly reports and balance sheets, to be specific – which are insufficient for understanding, tracking, and governing the corporate performance of today’s volatile market.

To be more specific:

  • Operating managers often work in relative isolation from the market and its operating functions, producing the familiar myopia that often occurs;
  • Executive leadership often has limited ability to guide and oversee operations because of inconsistent access to key information; and
  • Boards of Directors and Investors often have a limited view of ongoing operations, lacking the perspective or information needed to understand how to guide enterprises.

This exclusive webinar will demonstrate how Operating Blueprints overcome these barriers and help CEOs set a course for profitability and growth.

You are invited to hear two experts, Faisal Hoque and Fred Fishman of BTM Corporation, describe new directions in the presentation, "Operating Blueprints: Executive Strategies to Maximize Growth."

Here’s how your firm will benefit:

An operating blueprint allows CEOs, owners and management to work together based on converged intelligence of market opportunities, execution capabilities, and business model differentiations.

Properly implemented, operating blueprints allow enterprises to:

  • Maximize ROI at an earlier stage in the funding lifecycle of each initiative, and collectively across the entire organization;
  • Increase transparency between strategy, funding models, and execution models;
  • Prioritize and guide improved performance, value, and sustainable growth.

Faisal Hoque and Fred Fishman will illustrate how establishing specific objectives and applying reliable performance indicators are keys to a manageable process. Plus, through the use of transparent operating blueprints, the ability to connect the dots between financial reporting and actual operations is accurately represented with information, ongoing analysis, and improvements on behalf of an organization

In this important webinar, BTM Corporation’s CEO, Faisal Hoque and Fred Fishman, Chief Solutions Officer will provide clear guidance on the rationale for leveraging an operational blueprint. As they note,

An operating blueprint provides two strategic enablers:

  • 360º Enterprise Models (business, process, organization, technology, etc.), offer the ability to visualize the end-to-end business goals and execution strategies before beginning costly and often irreversible strategy implementations. These models create the opportunity to ask “what-if” questions and test scenarios that help vet problems and issues early on.
  • Impact Analyses and Scenarios, with which to alter factors, create multiple output scenarios, evaluate the end-to-end impact of each scenario, and arrive at the optimal solution.

As a Business leader make sure you attend this ground-breaking event to realize these additional benefits:

  • Accurately evaluate growth potential, while balancing organic versus inorganic growth;
  • Develop sustainable processes to reach or exceed revenue growth goals, cost cutting to preserve recurring dividends, and protection of top and bottom-lines for enterprises;
  • Implement strategies for building sustainable brand recognition, while assembling brilliant management teams;
  • Achieve progressive, demonstrable, repeatable results to executive leadership, the board, and investors that will sustain the firm today and tomorrow.

Please join Faisal and Fred and your CEO peers and business leaders on February 22nd for this much anticipated webinar.
