Strategy – more than a plan

Most small to moderate sized businesses have a plan, but few have a definable strategy. Which is somewhat like having a map without a destination in mind. Developing a strategy provides an over arching framework against which all business decisions, actions, culture, HR, marketing and client service is projected.

Strategic Learning – Do You Have a PD Plan?

I recall in my early days of practicing, I pretty much did every PD course available. Which was not difficult and probably only took three or four weekends per year. My how times have changed, you could fill every weekend now if you set your mind to it. We are spoiled for choice with a [...]

Continence after Radical Prostatectomy

I read an article today in the Journal of Neurourology and Urodynamics that appears to be a realistic counterpoint to the optimistic predictions from urologists and medical practitioners regarding the likelihood of a bloke being incontinent after a radical prostatectomy. Many of my clients tell me the advice they received gave them a 10-20 percent [...]
