Power Analysis

Have You Ever Wondered How To Orchestrate A True Breakthrough Inside Your Business?

Consider this… Imagine being able to view your business with X-ray like vision, to clearly see with all precision all lingering issues, hang ups, and untapped opportunities. To have complete clarity on every bottleneck holding you back, and every impact point which, if focused on, would allow for true quantum growth in every area of your business.

To see specifically WHAT activities serve you, and which ones are holding you back from the unlimited potential inside your business. To have a clear picture of what specific points within your business, if simply adjusted and optimized, would allow for immediate advancement, enhancement, and improvement of revenue and profits.

To know precisely what your priorities are, and WHERE you should be focusing for the greatest Return on Investment. To understand how LESS IS MORE and know what actions, activities and applications you should be avoiding, and making every effort to circumvent… which alone would naturally promise progress through simple redistribution of resources and focus to the absolute highest leverage areas…

…A POWER ANALYSIS PROVIDES COMPLETE X-RAY VISION INTO YOUR BUSINESS

The POWER ANALYSIS is the brain child of many years of working with clients and considering how to apply principals of leverage and power laws inside of various different businesses. While wanting to be completely honest and forthcoming with you, while at the same time not wanting to come across as boastful or braggadocios, especially considering I created this process. The Power Analysis is the most powerful business growth analysis and application system I’ve ever encountered.

It is a proprietary process in which I apply numerous of Leverage Principals, Theories, Philosophies and Power Laws to each area of a business to get a complete X-ray perspective, which brings to light every strength, weakness and opportunity… and more importantly, how to correct and capitalize on each and every one of them.

You see, prior to me developing the POWER ANALYSIS, I would work with clients in my consulting programs and I would apply many of these individual principals to a client’s business, and they would be struck by the insight and opportunity that would result from the application… To them, it seemed like magic! Very often they would remark how they couldn’t believe they never saw the problem or opportunity before.  And therein lies the beauty these principals, a common denominator of them is just how simple they truly are… and then it struck me, what if I applied them all in a single process versus sporadically or where they would obviously apply.

Alone they are powerful, however combined, they produce results that to this day still astonish me. Now let’s get a little more specific and talk about…

WHAT EXACTLY ARE THESE LEVERAGE PRINCIPALS AND POWER LAWS?

These are principals which are used in many areas of society today, including finance, economics, healthcare, philosophy and business. However, to apply them requires the same approach. That is to view and consider the situation or problem through a leverage, results and performance-based lens. Here are a few of the specific principals and laws I apply during the POWER ANALYSIS.

  • Optimization & Innovation – The understanding it’s always more effective to first optimize whatever you are currently doing rather than adding more things to do. Whenever approaching improving a business, it is always more economical and prosperous to optimize what you’re already doing first and make it better, and then once optimized, we innovate by adding more tactics, strategies and applications after.
  • Theory of Constraints – You may have heard the phrase “you’re only as strong as the weakest link” that is in essence Theory of Constraints. It’s a bottleneck detection and improvement system. Theory of Constraints takes a scientific approach to improvement. It hypothesizes that every complex system, including marketing, sales and manufacturing processes, consists of multiple linked activities, one of which acts as a constraint upon the entire system (i.e. the constraint activity is the “weakest link in the chain”).
  • The 80/20 Principal – This is the principal of factor sparsity and the law of the vital few. It is understanding a set amount of work or effort does not produce a relative result. The law states that, for many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes. An example would be, 20% of clients are responsible for 80% of revenue. But it goes much further, providing insight and direction as deep as a person is willing to go and can be applied to EVERY area of a business.
  • Asset Allocation - Asset allocation is an investment strategy that aims to balance risk and reward by apportioning a portfolio's assets according to an individual's goals, risk tolerance and investment horizon. However, this principal is applicable to much more than investing and can be applied to many areas of a business to balance risk, protect assets, and ensure growth.
  • Intensity v.s. Extensity – This is the understanding that dedicated and effective focus on doing ONE thing is far more effective than trying to do too many things at once. It asks the question – what is the most effective things you COULD be doing and what distractions are holding you back from doing the ONE thing? Remove the distraction and focus with undivided intensity.
  • Deming Philosophy - Dr. W. Edwards Deming taught that by adopting appropriate principles of management, organizations can increase quality and simultaneously reduce costs (by reducing waste, rework, staff attrition and litigation while increasing customer loyalty). The key is to practice continual improvement and think of manufacturing as a system, not as bits and pieces. It is where the Japanese developed the term KAIZEN which means “constant and never-ending improvement”.
  • Exponential Ability Principal – This principal states all individuals have certain unique gifts, skills and abilities. Which, if applied would produce exponential results, relative to doing something else they are not naturally gifted at. The principal demands we determine the gifts and restructure the organization and tasks based on the effectiveness of team members and their particular strengths.
  • Simplification Theory – This is the theory of boiling every effort, action and process down to it’s most simple and basic terms. Removing complications and allowing the power of a simple and elegant process to produce results, remove waste, and allow for maximum results with minimal time and effort.
  • Competition Leverage – This is understanding that all businesses and competitors aren’t equal and by using competition leverage theory we can win in business through competing primarily on a business’s unique strengths. This is how Southwest Airlines developed an enormous and cult like following of champion clients for quite a long time. A quote that articulates this incredibly well is “In the land of the blind the one-eyed man is king.”
  • Evergreen Advantages – This is approaching business with the understanding that most approaches, applications and actions are for the most part temporary. The largest advantage comes when we place attention on those areas of business that promise results for an exceptionally long time, if not forever.
  • And more…

These principals (and others) are then applied to each area of the business which include employee performance, revenue, profits and losses, marketing, positioning, leadership, company direction, financial management. When combined these principals provide insight and potential otherwise unknown.

WHO COULD BENEFIT FROM THE POWER ANALYSIS?

A POWER ANALYSIS is no a small undertaking and it requires enormous effort on both my end and the person or organization requesting it. That’s why I only recommend it for businesses that are generating a million plus in revenue. The reason, with most smaller businesses, they typically have less systems, revenue sources, distribution channels, which mean less opportunities for analysis exist, and in a small business it would require an individual (or a few people) to implement everything I recommend which would be virtually impossible.

The best way to know is to fill out the form at the bottom of the page, and I will provide a questionnaire sometimes on paper, sometimes by phone that will allow me to see if this is right for you. There is no cost for this, it’s simply to protect you for investing in something that might not be right for you, and to protect me from committing time to a project that is incapable of producing the results I expect for my clients.

HOW LONG DOES A POWER ANALYSIS TAKE AND HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

Typically, a POWER ANALYSIS will take approximately six months to complete with a lot of communication between myself and the organization during that time. The cost is a minimum of $10,000, however the actual amount is based on 2% of confirmed gross revenue.

Having completed many POWER ANALYSIS', 2% has been a remarkably accurate and fair investment indicator for the time it takes me to complete a power analysis for a business of the relative size.

In an effort to be completely transparent, I can only take on six of these a year (or running three at any one time - sometimes less depending on the business size). I am still looking for ways to speed up this process, but until I systematize it further and increase the number I am able to do, I am unfortunately restricted by time. This means at times (but not always), there’s a waiting list for those interested in a POWER ANALYSIS.
