For those of you who want a tool to open the door, and minds, of your internal decision makers, here is a suggestion.

Download “Driving Outstanding ROIC & EPS: a White Paper for Executives”

You can find it on the Greybeard Advisors website: 

http://www.greybeardadvisors.com/resources/white_papers/

It’s the third white paper listed.

Print it out, and hand it to your favorite executive. It just might start the internal dialogue you are seeking.

If that doesn’t work, send me an email and we might be able to arrange a meeting to explore how to break through your challenges.
