‘To better the future, you need to understand the past.’ This is an easy concept. However, when it comes to the business world this concept becomes far more difficult to understand. The job of the business leader has changed over the decades; everything from new technology and changes in tax laws, to better investing and social media – all facets that executives and business leaders must understand in order to gain financial success can be altered overnight.
With all these twists and turns that effect owners, managers and entrepreneurs, there have come a barrage of business books, expert advice and software packages that were made for the corporate decision maker to do the right things. However, when it comes to a solid plan – a foundation that will help all companies, whether that company is a large corporation or a small business – it is the concept of Whole Business Thinking (WBT) that will finally have everyone clearly seeing the right path to achieve success.
The first and most important step to Whole Business Thinking is right in the name. Each department within a company needs to share – real-time information, skills, background, data – all hands on deck, so to speak, in order to produce a financial flow.
In his new book, Whole Business Thinking, serial entrepreneur and owner of more than 200 U.S. and international patents, Robert S. Block, skillfully provides clear systems that a company can use to analyze and utilize data from the past. Through this process, they can understand the flaws that have been a hindrance on the company’s financial performance, and be able to see the alternatives and plan correctly for the future. An excellent overview can be found at http://clients.blogdash.com/whole-business-thinking/ (there’s also a free book sample there as well).
There is no ‘magic wand’ when it comes to perfecting a business; many people are weighed down by the extremely hard-to-understand language of the financial world. Whole Business Thinking offers all this ‘must-know’ information in easy, concise language that will help any decision-maker better understand how to reach their objectives.
Quickness, efficiency, doing your job correctly while helping others to do the same, is what Whole Business Thinking is all about. Every level/department must play a part in the performance of a company. The ladder of power – or, Silo Business Thinking (which is what it’s called in this book), is not the right way to increase ROI. The manager of this department answers to the V.P. of that department, to the President – this structure simply doesn’t work. Full integration does.
This is literally a management’s guide to understanding each facet of the business; financial statements, assets and cash flow management, strategic planning and execution, and more. Section I provides chapters dedicated to management functions; while Section II provides 700 business terms and performance indicators. An index is also offered to allow for better understanding of financial subjects. On top of all this, the Whole Business Thinking concepts have been fully integrated and automated in Enterprise Management System and Business Management System for all-sized businesses.
Well written, easily understood, and a proven way of thinking that’s written by a business powerhouse with a very long and successful career resume makes it official: For those who want to increase ROI and have a successful business – Whole Business Thinking is the way to do it! Whole Business Thinking is available at www.wholebusinessthinking.com or wherever e-books are sold.
