Why Are Some Business Management Strategies Succeeding While Others Are Failing?

Joseph McElmeel, Chairman & CEO of Brooke Chase Associates, was recently asked to write an article for DPHA Magazine. Headquartered in Sarasota, FL, Brooke Chase Associates is a retained executive search firm specializing in the recruitment of professionals within the Kitchen & Bath, Plumbing, Cabinet and Building Materials Industries.

Sarasota, FL, April 27, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Mr. McElmeel’s article on Business Management Strategies appears in the March/April Edition of DPHA Magazine Newsleak, the leading resource for news and information within the decorative plumbing and hardware industry.

“When it comes to successful business management, it’s so important to identify, recruit and keep the best talent available,” Mr. McElmeel wrote. “There is no ‘silver bullet,’ which is sought after by so many Boards, CEOs, Presidents and Executives with no clear and consistent direction, focus or management strategy. It’s all about understanding your core competencies and building your product lines, channels of distribution and management organization to support those competencies.”

Citing Executives from industry leading companies such as Rinnai, Lasco Fittings and American Standard, the article focuses on upgrading and developing staff and focusing on the development needs of each individual within the team. “It is equally important to create an atmosphere of continuous improvement, not content with ‘what we have achieved,’ but rather looking for continued opportunity to improve and strive for excellence. Leaders who foster a culture of continuous improvement are not only making their organization more profitable now, but are creating the platform for their team members to be even more successful as the market turns and sales growth brings its own unique challenges.”

“In a time of tight credit and decreasing sales, how does a company afford to upgrade its staff and redo its product offering when it is fighting for survival? It has to believe first that it will prevail, that the marketplace will get better and that it will be better positioned as a company when the economic downturn is over. However, it can’t ignore the brutal facts. It must contain costs and wisely invest in opportunities that will bring tangible results.” A copy of the article can be found on the Brooke Chase Associates website at, www.brookchase.com/index.php/media/the-headhunter.
