Revenue Throughput Analysis

Thursday, August 25th, 2016

Date: Monday, September 19
Time:  8:00 am to 4:30 pm
Location:  TBA

Does your Business need the VIA Revenue Throughput Program? 

If growth is that important, then why don’t all businesses experience their full growth potential? The “how” of attaining growth can seem straightforward, but it can be very difficult to implement. An it all begins with you, the business president/CEO/owner.  Are you and your organization committed to grow? If so, are you ready to change the way you view your business?

There are often processes in your business that you don’t know are constraining growth! These processes are “blind spots”.  These blind spots are the bottlenecks that suppress growth; day after day, year after year!  You’re smart. Your leadership team is capable. If you knew what these blind spots were, wouldn’t you do something about them?

I was extremely impressed with the content, the flow of the sessions, and Jose’s presentation abilities. Engaging yet succinct. This was a highly thought provoking activity with several very concrete takeaways that I have used already.  – Simon Balint, Center Project Design Engineer, BullEx, Inc.; Serial Entrepreneur

Join CEG and Jose Palomino, Author of “Value Prop” and founder of the Revenue Throughput Program, as they take you hands on through the Revenue Throughput Analysis (RTA) toolkit and help your business unlock your business’ full revenue potential.
