Case Studies

Case Study: Bendpro

Allen Ascough is the General Manager at Bendpro, a 35-person manufacturing company. A board member introduced Allen to Better Execute with the hope of him instilling greater accountability into his management team. Allen has a long and successful history of not letting things go wrong on his watch. However, this often comes at the cost of him finding solutions directly.

From Reactive to Proactive Company Management in Under 3 Months

The Process:

Bendpro has an effective board that helped the company gain clarity on their one- and three-year goals.  Better Execute identified a need to better unpackage the one-year goals into a set of quarterly projects (or rocks). These would help the management team focus on the best initiatives to work on each quarter to achieve the year-end goal.  Additionally, Better Execute helped the management team define their roles and responsibilities so that Allen could become more free to focus on strategic activities such as customer interactions. Finally, Better Execute facilitated week-over-week management meetings to help monitor the team’s performance.

Business Goals

The Results:

Allen feels he has moved from reacting to the company’s needs in the moment to a more proactive manager with greater clarity and focus. The management team stepped up with their higher level of clarity on what they are most accountable for and how they can better support Allen with day-to-day operations.
