MAP Honors Nine Companies Achieving ‘Olympic Gold’ Business Success
Key denominators to success: Disciplined leadership, empowered teams and company-wide alignment to Vital Factors® Goals.
Similar to training for “Olympic gold,” it takes dedication and discipline to develop amazing companies. To that end, MAP is pleased to honor nine remarkable companies with this year’s 9th Annual MAP Presidential Award.
The award honors organizations that have used the proven MAP Management System™ and MAP’s customized consulting to move their businesses into a profitable, productive place. Highlighting relentless commitment to excellence, the award also reinforces the leaders who’ve built upon their own skills and talents to effectively drive MAP’s system down into their companies. Finally, the recognition celebrates those companies’ staff members who’ve embraced the solution and delivered measureable results in return.
“In the industry of business excellence, these are the companies delivering Olympic-like leadership, discipline and results,” says John Manning, president of MAP, the Los Angeles-based firm that has helped 170,000 leaders in more than 15,000 organizations over the past 50+ years. “Both these leaders and their teams of employees are aligned to the Vital Factors® Goals, and they’re empowered through their understanding and ownership of the MAP Management System™. They’re medal material in MAP’s book, having made breakthrough—yet sustainable—improvements. While some have doubled profitability and revenues, all have achieved various big wins through what’s ultimately been a highly transformative experience.”
The 2013 winners have all used MAP’s unique process discipline to strengthen their bottom line through on-target business-plan execution and the achievement of Vital Factors® Goals. The criteria for the Presidential Award include:
- Implementation of the MAP Management System™ throughout the organization;
- Significant improvement in company Vital Factors®, the critical elements that sustain business growth;
- Establishment of consistent, effective leadership that provides clear company direction;
- Reinforcement of company values through consistently "walking the talk"; and
- Demonstration of the overall, hard work of its executives, management and employees.
