Joe Poerink, of Linley Capital was given at the Warton School of business. In this interactive, due diligence lecture Joe focuses students on finding a proprietary opportunity and the analysis required.
At Executive Outliers helps CEO and investors perform their IT due diligence. Investors and CEOs are looking for Exponential Equity Growth. In the past, private equity investors looked for ways to reduce expenses. Modern private equity focuses on optimizing operations. Today private equity investment is not focused on technologies that reduce costs. Instead, we look at Business technology designed to optimize business operations.
We like this lecture because it looks past the finances of the targets but provides the type of analysis, we like providing for our clients.
Our due diligence focus looks at growing the company’s private equity. We follow assess the company based on a simple formula.
Equity Growth Potential = (Mission/Vision x Business Operation) x Technical AlignmentJames Murray
This is based on a quote by Bill Gates.
“The first rule of any technology used in a business is that automation applied to an efficient operation will magnify the efficiency. The second is that automation applied to an inefficient operation will magnify the inefficiency.”Bill Gates
Technology Alignment turns a 30-minute manual task into a task that takes milli-seconds. At the same time, improves the productivity for that task by 48% if the task is performed twice a day. In assessing the company, we find 100’s of 15 -30-minute tasks that could be automated. Saving the owners, staff and the company hundreds of FTE hours per year. What would it mean to the competitive advantage of your investment, if the staff could do 30% more per day, with no additional overhead cost?
If you are a business owner or a business investor, we can show you how to optimize the weakest link in the operations change.
