The Atlanta-based management training firm, Afterburner, facilitated a high-energy symposium on its nationally acclaimed Flawless Execution® model to a group of 33 from the Fox Cable Network. Part of a multiple-day training event, the firm’s program provided attendees with the skills needed to operate efficiently in a field that demands flexibility and near-constant evolution. When applied to everyday processes, the model will help organizations to identify potential and recurring errors, as well as opportunities.

The keynote was delivered by highly skilled former Blue Angel pilot, Scott “Intake” Kartvedt. The fighter pilot helped the executives discover the ways in which the Flawless Execution® model can be applied to the media industry by relating his experience in hostile enemy territory to the ruthless media industry, and the framework strategy needed to survive in both. The model’s continuous improvement process of Plan.Brief.Execute.Debriefsm is a comprehensive cycle that allows for seamless operations that is necessary to achieve ideal results.

Fox Cable Network is one of the largest media entities in the US, with successful subsidiaries that include Fox News Channel, FX, and the National Geographic Channel. Part of the media faction of News Corporation, Fox Cable Networks is one of the fastest growing sections of the corporation and ranks in the top five networks in the country. The brand has seen an increase in viewership in recent years, furthering the company’s success in a time when few corporations are seeing growth.

The Flawless Execution® model was created by former U.S. Air Force fighter pilot Jim “Murph” Murphy and reflects principles used by military professionals in hostile environments. A zero-tolerance-for-error approach and a holistic, four-part strategic framework address the instabilities of an ever-changing business environment, and equip team members with the tools needed to perform at optimum levels.
