Rick Beer’s career focus has been on corporate and financial management. At various times during his
career, he has been responsible for finance and operations, including vendor relations, compliance,
human resources, sales, facilities and call center operations including sales and customer service.
He is Key Performance Indicator (KPI) driven using KPIs to illustrate and diagnose not only financial and production performance, but also to present the information that the various operating teams need at their fingertips, information that doesn’t fall directly from the accounting system. He is an advocate of frequent employee reviews against goals such as training, projects and day-to-day activities to increase employee - manager engagement and improve overall effectiveness.
As an investor, a Grant Thornton consultant, and as a senior executive with operating companies, he understands the efficiencies that can be gained by marrying finance and operations to provide real time information tailored for the viewer.
It begins with an assessment and diagnosis to ensure alignment of goals throughout the organization. With aligned goals, everyone at every level has the direction they need to keep the company on its strategic path. All stages of management and supervision are accountable and focused.
Even published goals can be misinterpreted without measurable Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). When actionable information is published on a regular basis, communication and processes become aligned. It is chiropractic for business.
An important part of this process is the delivery of a dashboard to display ‘Performance to Goals’. While this is optional, it is highly recommended as it makes performance readily accessible and visible. Dashboards also provide continuing and timely value through a tangible deliverable.
Profit and non-profit companies who have a hard time getting everyone to pull in the same direction (alignment), have employee engagement concerns or compliance reporting needs are ideal candidates. Business Chiropractic’s methods will identify the ‘5 Things You Need to Know Before You Get to the Office’. This will help create meaningful, managed metrics for your entire team to enable them to measure how they are performing in real time against the company’s strategic goals and direction.
A major benefit of Business Chiropractics? It’s fast and it’s focused! Implementing goal management does not require a lengthy engagement. It allows even smaller companies and start-ups to take advantage of ‘finger-tip’ information.
