Perfecting Profitability in a New Era of Corporate Responsibility

How do you grow top and bottom line simultaneously? 

Is it even possible?

In order to answer this question the CEO and CFO must know where the business is today.  To do this, they must have the most accurate, relevant and current information available.

The Blue Sage Group is a business consultancy which designs programs that provide the information required to assess this business challenge.

The first step is to assess the management of your business to determine the quality of the information. Start by asking yourself the following questions:

  • Does your company have the proper procedures and controls in place to ensure ethical behavior and data integrity?  If yes, when are they reviewed and who reviews them?

  • Do all managers understand that every action they or their employees take will impact the bottom line?  If yes, who has decision-making authority in your organization?

  • Do you have a process to ensure that the financials are free from mistakes or omissions?   If yes, do you share the responsibility of certifying the financials with those responsible for running the business?

  • Does everyone in your company know what constitutes a material event? Do they understand the potential consequences of not reporting such an event?

  • Are your operational and financial goals linked?  If yes, how often do you take the financial pulse of your business?

  • Do you keep track of operational events? Do you quantify the impact of operational events on current or future financials?

  • Are the CEO and CFO adequately protected against criminal liability as a result of misrepresentation of information?

If you answered NO or were unsure of the answers to any of these questions, you need to improve the quality of your business intelligence.

The Blue Sage Group offers comprehensive programs that will improve governance and performance management.  These improvements are designed to help CEOs and CFOs solve the top and bottom line growth issues.   We provide access to the business intelligence and accurate information required to solve the profitability conundrum. Our services are integrated into day-to-day operations and will enhance or replace current practices and processes with more effective and efficient solutions.
