Options

In our most recent newsletter, we formally introduced My COO Resources as an alternative option for Business Leaders who want to identify and address their operational issues without hiring additional Resources (whether it is more Staff or a Consulting firm). In today’s ever changing environment, it is prudent to find alternative options.

 

Aldridge Kerr has consistently taken an alternative approach to supporting its Clients’ needs using its Doable, Chewable Chunks® methodology. Now with My COO Resources, a Business Leader is positioned to more clearly identify operational issues by using this alternative, on-line interactive tool.

 

Knowing your Company’s operational issues provides a roadmap for defining what options best meet your needs in order to address those issues, including:
• Hiring more Staff
• Using a consulting firm like Aldridge Kerr
• Upgrading membership through My COO Resources for a do-it-yourself approach
