COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (PRWEB) July 14, 2014
The Center for Business Modeling (CBM), a new venture aimed at helping executives and entrepreneurs save time and develop more accurate plans for critical functions such as revenue, sales and finance, announced its launch today.
Business leaders in sales, marketing, finance, operations and beyond are all accountable to their teams for crafting on-strategy plans that set accurate goals and provide insight into business performance and health. From line-of-business initiatives to startups, CBM provides cloud-based tools that standardize the approach to business planning.
The CBM website launches with a collection of free business planning resources:
- How Many Sales Leads Do You Need? Seven Steps to the Magic Number
- Use SWOT Analysis to Pinpoint Strengths and Weaknesses
- How to Choose the Best Marketing and Sales Model
Several more free offerings will be available to those who register on the CBM homepage. Future offerings from CBM will include cloud-based planning tools and a business modeling community, where users can share best practices and help themselves mitigate planning risk, measure against industry baselines and build defensible, realistic plans that are easy to develop and present.
“Good planning—and presenting that plan to others—is a critical component to success, but there’s just too much time and brain damage involved in generating plans today,” said Michael James Smyth, CBM’s Chief Operating Officer. “What we offer business planners is the ability to easily crystallize strategy, track progress and hit their targets, while also getting a few of their evenings and weekends back.”
