ABOUT - Core Business Improvement Site


Core Business Improvement focuses on furthering an organization’s Core Business Model productively and profitably.


For thirty years business improvement projects have been underperforming and cost organizations billions of dollars and without gaining the expected results.  In overseeing, reviewing, or participating in upwards of sixty business- and technology-improvement projects from all aspects, including strategizing, implementing, and failed project reviews through expert forensics, I have seen a basic element that was common in each failure.


It was not the single aspect of project management, project resources, executive sponsorship, or even requirement’s definition. A common thread was that leadership did not implement a project that empowered the organization’s most basic goal. The most basic goal is the organization’s core business model.  This site is dedicated to turn the failure statistic around with Core Business Improvement methods and approaches.


Strategy / Innovation / Disruption


By using a new type of strategy that integrates Core Business Model methods, organizations can increase their success rate and finally hit their budgets for improvement, innovation or disruptions.


The site has resources to understand, identify, develop and build approaches for successful Core Business Model Focused Improvement.  The site also provides insight into trends for innovation and even industry disruptions with brand new core business models developed by the newest technology.
