We start with a Voice of the Customer (VOC) survey to analyze critical customer needs and expectations. Next, we look inside the organization to identify which functions or departments deliver customer value. Although the finger is usually pointed at sales, this is not always the case. In addition, ArchPoint develops customer, channel, and end user segmentation, and analyzes 1) product/market performance and trends, 2) brand and company reputation, and 3) value proposition. Facilitating an executive overview and debriefing session Once the data is collected and analyzed, the ArchPoint team invites the leadership team to review a comprehensive, detailed summary of our findings. During the debrief session, we ask each team member to record observations to be used for a later exercise. The review begins with sharing the macro trends, major positive themes and opportunities for improvement for the company. We give feedback in all of the categories listed in the diagram including a SWOT analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats) based on input from the interviews. Furthermore, we present detailed analyses, graphs and even quotes from the interviewees (though the source always remains anonymous). At the end of the......

...Talent Working For You” Why Concentrica? Many of the companies we speak to despair at the idea of telemarketing because of bad experiences in the past. Nobody likes poorly qualified sales appointments that turn out to be a complete waste of time and we at Concentrica Associates are no different. We understand the pitfalls and our experienced team therefore only deliver highly effective lead generation, business development and outsourced sales services, across a wide portfolio of IT based solutions. With enviable credentials and a proven history in delivering effective business development services, our key differentiators are manifest in the facts that all projects undertaken have 'hands on' involvement from at least one Concentrica director and that we never use inexperienced graduates. These considerations are vital when articulating the more complex sales proposition and importantly, where a requirement exists to minimize the lead time to effective project initiation. The approach therefore, which our long term clients particularly value is to provide a seamless extension to their sales force. We are a highly professional, niche operation, working with IT solutions companies of all sizes, from the start-up enterprise to some of our strategic business partners which include Microsoft, CA Technologies and BMC. We would very much welcome the opportunity to discuss how Concentrica can shape and implement your business development plans. Please contact us to discuss:......

...that shareholders elect directors who, in turn, hire management to carry out their directives. Shareholders, therefore, control the corporation through the right to elect the directors. Generally, only shareholders have this right. Directors are elected each year at an annual meeting. Although there are exceptions (discussed next), the general idea is “one share, one vote” (not one shareholder, one vote). Corporate democracy is thus very different from our political democracy. With corporate democracy, the “golden rule” prevails absolutely.3 Directors are elected at an annual shareholders’ meeting by a vote of the holders of a majority of shares who are present and entitled to vote. However, the exact mechanism for electing directors differs across companies. The most important difference is whether shares must be voted cumulatively or voted straight. To illustrate the two different voting procedures, imagine that a corporation has two shareholders: Smith with 20 shares and Jones with 80 shares. Both want to be a director. Jones does not want Smith, however. We assume there are a total of four directors to be elected. The effect of cumulative voting is to permit minority participation.4 If cumulative voting is permitted, the total number of votes that each shareholder may cast is determined first. This is usually calculated as the number of shares (owned or controlled) multiplied by the number of directors to be elected. With cumulative voting, the directors are elected all......

...Summary vs Executive Summary Summary and Executive summary are two terms that are used quite often in education and business areas differently. A summary is a short or a brief account, sometimes elaborate too of the various events of a play. An executive summary on the other hand is a term used in business for a short document that summarizes a longer report, especially a business report. An executive summary is normally a condensed version of the full business document. Hence it needs skill on the part of the writer to execute an executive summary. On the other hand a summary should give salient features of any given aspect of a novel, or a short story or a play. This is the difference between a summary and an executive summary. You can write a summary of any particular episode of a novel or any other fiction written by Jane Austen. The particular summary should contain the various events of the episode in a nutshell or briefly. On the other hand an executive summary should be written in non-technical language. This is the main difference between the two. An executive summary should necessarily have a conclusion. On the other hand a conclusion is not necessary while writing a summary of a play or any scene of a play. An executive summary should ultimately make a business recommendation. No such intention is included in the writing of a summary. An executive summary should contain short and concise paragraphs. On the other hand a summary need not have short and concise......

...Work of the Holy Spirit how it may link to my Personal and Business Life Chuck Johnson BB202 Sir Mark Gibbs Montreat College Work of the Holy Spirit After Jesus completed His ministry here on earth, He ascended into heaven with a promise of sending a Helper. While on earth, Jesus required His followers and disciples to believe in Him and most importantly follow Him. In John 3:13 and 6:38, Jesus claims to have come from Heaven to fulfill the will of His father. After this achievement, He tells the disciples that he goes to prepare a place for them. Before ascending to Heaven, He promised not to leave without leaving behind a comforter. In John 14:16, Jesus promises to ask the Father to send the Holy Spirit to help the disciples and to always be with them. Therefore, in every day of my life, the Holy Spirit plays a crucial role in my personal, business and Christian life. This paper thus discusses the works of the Holy Spirit in my daily life. Upon reading God’s word, there is a revelation that the Holy Spirit convicts us in our day to day lives. In this respect, the Holy Spirit acts as an agent who convicts all Christians of their sins. In this work of the Holy Spirit, the Christians are brought to the awareness of personal sins and the sinful structures they are involved in. According to John 16:8, the Holy Spirit was to come and show the people the truth......

The Role of Non-Executive Directors

...THE ROLE OF NON-EXECUTIVE DIRECTORS Essentially the non-executive director's (NED) role is to provide a creative contribution to the board by providing independent oversight and constructive challenge to the executive directors. NED could act as the 10th man in ‘10th man idea’ where his/her role is to disagree no matter how improbable the idea nine people agree on something. He/ She may present a case for an alternative viewpoint — no matter how ridiculous the idea sounds. If his evidence is still inferior and conflicts with the consensus of the other nine men, then they go through with their original plan. If the tenth man’s ideas prove to be superior, they explore his ideas further. Therefore, with NED argument and consultation, the decision that come out from boardroom has been consolidated and unbiased. The 1992 Cadbury Report initiated a debate about the main functions and responsibilities of non-executive directors. Today, it is widely accepted that non-executive directors have an important contribution to make to the proper running of companies and, therefore, more widely to the economy at large. As the Cadbury Report said, they: “should bring an independent judgement to bear on issues of strategy, performance and resources including key appointments and standards of conduct.”     There is no legal distinction between executive and non-executive directors. As a consequence, in the UK unitary board structure, non-executive directors have the same legal duties,...

...leadership capacity and encourage individuals to act upon it – to lead small teams of people and apply that leadership in business” (Little, 2008). West Central is a human service organization that serves the low income. Most of our staff that has direct client contact are very compassionate people, but, lack the leadership skills to properly guide the staff they supervise. We also have a number of staff that have been promoted and are now in a supervisory position, and while their skill set for completing the mechanics of the jobs is there, the leadership component is missing. As identified by Little, we need a leadership program that will harness the staff’s leadership capacity so they can lead. Objectives In an interview with the Executive Director of West Central, the objective of the leadership development program would be to enhance leadership skills for the participants by providing appropriate activities, experiences, training to increase the probability of success for each participant; establish a peer coaching network that involves the participants and West Central’s management team and provide ongoing assessment of the progress of the program as well as an assessment of the success of the program overall. These objectives would be accomplished over a five month period and would consist of planned activities, training sessions, peer-networking and journaling. Intensive two day sessions would be held every month at the main office and the program would be......

...standards are being met. The Authority is responsible for the registration and inspection of “designated centres”, that is, residential services for children, older people and people with disabilities. Since its establishment, the Authority has developed standards for residential services for older people. Residential services for children have been inspected with standards developed by the Department of Health and Children prior to the establishment of the Authority, pending the development of new standards. The Health Act 2007 requires that all “designated centres” are registered and inspected. A designated centre is defined in Part 1, Section 2 of the Act, as an institution at which residential services are provided by the Health Service Executive (HSE) or other service providers. It includes, therefore, those run by private companies and voluntary organisations. The registration and inspection of designated centres is the responsibility of the Social Services Inspectorate (SSI) within the Authority. The term “residential service” is used to refer to designated centres in the standards. 3 Health Information and Quality Authority National Quality Standards: Residential Services for People with Disabilities Designated centres do not include mental health facilities.
