Paul O'Malley has been a mentor, business coach and friend for 20 years. Without Paul, I wouldn't have had the confidence to quit my job only three years out of college and launch my own company in 1994. Paul has played an integral part in my personal and professional growth, and his process has helped Synergy to thrive through many economic cycles. ValueGroove boils down Paul's experience into a repeatable format that will help almost all businesses and managers balance short- and long-term priorities with an actionable daily, weekly, monthly and annual plan.
As a newly appointed Managing Director, with eleven business units reporting to me, the ValueGroove process was extremely useful in allowing me to hit the ground running. We used the 7-step strategy framework to help the management teams of the portfolio companies identify growth opportunities and set goals. The execution process provided clear milestones and a simple way to track them across multiple businesses. ValueGroove provides a fast, practical approach for helping managers develop and execute effective business strategies. It is especially powerful for executives working with multiple businesses.
ValueGroove is a very powerful way for any organization to connect the dots between strategy and day to day actions. The process has helped me rebalance my priorities to give more attention every week to long-term growth goals. Without this type of process it is easy for those high-impact, long-term goals to get pushed to the back burner.
At StudentCity.com, Paul O’Malley helped us to develop and execute a winning growth strategy, resulting in a successful exit. In a rapidly growing company, it is very difficult to find the time and bandwidth to plan for the future in a disciplined way. The ValueGroove process, along with Paul’s coaching, helped us maintain that discipline, even as we dealt with the day to day whirlwind of running the business.
Paul O’Malley wrote a business plan and worked with my previous company,iVR3d.com, to help us obtain funding from a major venture capital group, and has advised me as I have built my latest business, American Day Spa. In addition to being very effective, Paul was one guy who always looked out for our best interests, and dealt with us with honesty, integrity and respect. If you want help with strategy, planning and execution or general management advice, you can’t go wrong working with Paul.
