Management Science: Solutions for Founders, Leaders, and Executives


Ephor's Perform Business Process™ is a management science and operating methodology that enhances and develops business models while creating the decision making framework that provides the organization (its people, managers and all constituents) with a system of doing business. The “System” is a set of actions, ideas, philosophies, and information that interacts and includes a management system, communication system, and corporate acquisition system. The Perform Business Process℠ thus creates wealth by providing clarity thru all the Strategic, Tactical, Operational, and Economic functions of the organization.


It is well known that today most founders suffer from:

  • "Trial and Error" Management
  • Legacy Management Thinking, Actions and Decisions
  • Disinvestment (due to resource constraints, lack of available strategic and financial optionality, and the difficult economic environment)

The Management Science from Ephor Group (Ephor's Perform Business Process™) is ideal for leaders who:

  • Seek a pragmatic and proven method to develop and grow
  • Prefer results over talk
  • Have limited time and resources
  • Want measurable near-term results that lay the foundation for constituency alignment

While every business is unique, there are common practices and attributes of successful businesses. Regardless of size, complexity, or industry; there are key disciplines and business processes fundamental to all. They include:

  • Creating a Branded "Franchise Effect" Playbook
  • Business Planning & Strategic Optionality
  • Operational TARGETING - the process of defining specific attributes and targets and the key tactics and milestones necessary to achieve the targets
  • Scaling Your Business: Maximizing the efficiency of the cost structures
  • Implementation of a Perform Culture (Engaged, Accountable, and Performance oriented workforce)
  • Clear Actions and Behaviors to Maximizing Profitability and create ongoing improvement
