Bountiful, Utah (PRWEB) February 20, 2014
When performance is measured, performance improves. Bountiful-based Mormon entrepreneurs take a line from their prophet/leader, Thomas S. Monson, as a basis for what they are hopeful is the next business management revolution.
According to co-founder Dr. Scott Frogley, "He doesn't run a fortune 500 company, but I think those who have seen him lead, know that he understands effective management principles." Dr. Frogley continued, "Before the seven co-founders gathered together to build backbone, we all independently had the quote memorized. We all had used it as a guide to build our own businesses." The quote, coming from President Monson states, "When performance is measured, performance improves. When performance is measured and reported, the rate of improvement accelerates." But who needs a software app at $99/mo to measure performance?
Founders suggest most business owners are proficient at their own skill, not at managing employees or running a business, per se. Rather, an electrician knows how to wire stuff safely, a dentist knows how to fix teeth, etc. But software app developers of Backbone are hopeful business owners will be receptive to MBA training wheels - an online app which gives business owners the template to create a culture of accountability, organization, and clarity. "This is how profitable companies, most fortune 500 companies, operate. They systematize everything and have methods and personnel to measure performance. Our goal in developing Backbone was to deliver these systems in a turnkey and easy to implement format to the small business owner," Frogley added.
Backbone offers a free live demo at http://www.backbonepro.com and is $99/mo for those who decide to "systematize everything."
