Leaders' Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
It is common in many professions like accounting, law and medicine for practitioners to engage in a certain amount of on-ging CPD each year to keep themselves up to date with current best practice. No one wants a doctor who is not using current best practice!
We suggest this may be a good practice for business leaders as well!

Planning & Strategy Tools
Business planning sounds like a pretty complex exercise that takes a lot of time and thought; and has uncertain payoffs. Consequently, many smaller business owners don’t spend a lot of time on it. We take these realities into consideration and have fashioned a very simple, very adaptable, planning routine based on the best practices of leading writers and companies.
Some leaders and businesses prepare and monitor Strategic Plans on a regular basis. Others are in a start-up phase with lots of unknowns or too small to warrant elaborate, formal, plans and work in short “Sprints” for rapid progress. We cater to both groups with our planning resources.
Space missions concentrate their monitoring and control centers in one place. So do we! Our Mission Control is a online & on mobile, one-stop, app for monitoring and planning your business and for 2-directional communication between staff and leaders.
