CorePurpose, Inc. Launches the Impact Research Initiative at the Arizona Technology Council Partnering Conference
Phoenix, Arizona February 25, 2004– CorePurpose, Inc., a management consulting, software and outsourced solutions provider, today announced the Impact Research Initiative at the Arizona Partnering Conference.

The Impact Research Initiative will research key business questions and challenges facing products and services organizations worldwide using a monthly email based survey. Subscribers will then receive a summary of the results including an executive summary of its business impact by the end of the same month.

“Have you ever looked at statistical data on key business issues and wondered – where did this come from or who did they ask? Too often, large segments of the population go uncounted and without a voice in major research studies” stated Joan Koerber-Walker, executive director of CorePurpose, Inc. “The purpose of the Impact Research Initiative is to open the platform to businesses people around the world and allow them to share what is happening and what they are doing to move their businesses forward. Each survey will look at a different facet of business growth including: economic conditions, strategic execution, product design, customer focus and service, operations, sales, and globalization.”

The first survey, scheduled for April 1, 2004, will address the question “Is the economy starting to turn and how does it impact your business?” Surveys will be delivered via email to members of business associations, industry groups, and across a wide network of business contacts. Survey recipients will be encouraged to share the opportunity to participate with their contacts, creating an expanding pool of data to draw from. The study groups will draw from business people across geographies and industries as well as from all sizes of organizations. Respondents will be asked to provide demographic information so that data can be analyzed and reported by business size and segment.

“At CorePurpose, our mission is to help businesses grow” added Koerber-Walker. “The information collected through the Impact Research Initiative will come from the business community – be aggregated – and returned to the community so it can be used to foster that growth.”

CorePurpose, Inc. Announces the Third Installment in the Ready-Set-Grow Series: Focus on Product
Phoenix, Arizona February 17, 2004– CorePurpose, Inc., a management consulting, software and outsourced solutions provider, today announced the third installment in the Ready Set Grow Lecture Series – “Focus on Product”.

Ready Set Grow, is a 12 month program bringing 12 nationally known business growth experts to the valley. The second in the series “Focus on People”, held February 17th, was well received by an audience of representatives from Arizona businesses. The series continues throughout 2004 and is held the third Tuesday morning of the month. Attendees will have the opportunity to listen to these executives tell how they have improved their businesses and then participate in workshops designed to apply the same concepts to their own companies. Subscriptions are offered as a series and on a single session basis.

Each program will look at a different facet of business growth strategy ranging from strategic execution to product design, customer focus and service, operations, sales, and globalization.

The March 16, 2004 session, “Focus on Product” will explore how to develop the products and services that customers want to buy. “Today consumers can buy what they want, when they want, and have it delivered when and how they want. In addition, consumers demand personalization, customization, and convenience. To create products and services that consumers seek out to purchase means that product development needs to be consumer-centered” stated Camille Schuster, the session presenter and president of Global Collaborations. Dr. Schuster will share both research and practical experiences aimed at answering key questions including:

• What is the difference between saying the customer is #1 and having a consumer-centered business?

• Why the demand part of the traditional supply and demand value chain is critical for success.

• How to develop the questions to ask that create a consumer-centered approach to product development and positioning.

Dr. Schuster will open the program, followed by a question and answer period and workshop where participants can apply what they have learned to their own companies.

Camille Schuster (Ph.D., The Ohio State University) is President of Global Collaborations, Inc., a Full Professor of Marketing at Xavier University, and Faculty Associate at Arizona State University. Dr. Schuster has worked with leading executives in ECR (Efficient Consumer Response) and GCI (Global Commerce Initiative) development activities since 1995 and presented keynote presentations, breakout sessions, speeches and workshops on 4 continents in more than 30 countries around the world. Her speaking, training, facilitating and coaching activities are grounded in reality, based upon experience gained primarily through data gathering, and collaborative project development with global business executives, in small, mid-size AND large, multinational companies, as well as industry associations. As a member of the Global Scorecard Committee, Dr. Schuster has worked with middle management; services, retail, and manufacturing companies; faculty; and been on panels with leading business executives. Dr. Schuster has co-authored one book with Michael Copeland from Procter & Gamble entitled Global Business: Planning for Sales and Negotiation, co-authored a second book entitled The Consumer or Else! . . . Consumer Centric Business Paradigms, with Don Dufek, retired Senior Vice President and Officer of The Kroger Company. Dr. Schuster has solo-authored a book entitled The Rise of Consumer Power – Adapting Marketing Communication Strategies.

“The long held strategy of IF WE BUILD IT THEY WILL COME, may have worked for Kevin Costner in the movie Field of Dreams but it does not work in today’s business environment” stated Joan Koerber-Walker, executive director of CorePurpose. “Today businesses need to products that are consumer centered to succeed. Too often our businesses invest much needed funds in developing products and services only to find that the customer has other ideas about what they want. This session is designed to help us avoid costly mistakes and bring value to our customers and success to our businesses.”

Other experts coming to the valley include, Greg Reid, sr. vice president of marketing and strategy at Yellow Corporation, who led customer strategy at Yellow Corporation as it moved from worst to first in its industry; Tom Esposito, president of The Insight Group, and former IBM executive who developed the IBM Global Services business model; and Roy Vallee, chairman and CEO of Avnet, Inc.. Other sessions include leading PhD’s, CEO’s and senior executives who have created major impact in their organizations and industries by focusing on the concepts they will share.

The program has gained support from a number of business and community sponsors including The Business Journal, the Arizona Technology Council, AZ SNAP, ASBA, The Downtown Phoenix Partnership – Copper Square, and The Business and Industry Institute at Mesa Community College.

“Workforce development is key to Arizona’s economic recovery”, said Koerber-Walker. “Ready Set Grow is designed to support workforce development at multiple levels in an organization from senior leadership to the organizations key managers and next generation leaders. It is an opportunity for employees to step up and become part of the solution and an opportunity for employers to energize and endorse key team members through investing in their professional development.”

CorePurpose Achieves 300% Increase in Bottom Line Results with the assistance of GoalCentrix
 

CorePurpose Achieves 300% Increase in Bottom Line Results with the assistance of GoalCentrix

Phoenix, Arizona —November 4, 2003—

GoalCentrix, an industry leader in goal achievement solutions, today announced that CorePurpose, a leading business consulting and services aggregator, has achieved significant business results using GoalCentrix.

CorePurpose had developed a unique business model to distribute professional services, software, and outsource solutions its customers allowing them to focus on what they are passionate about and best at in a way that makes financial sense. With their success, came many challenges. “On the surface, everything was great,” said Joan Koerber-Walker, Executive Director and Founder. “But the faster we grew – the more the activity. I was working 18 hour days 6 days a week just to keep up.”

“Our mission is to provide services, software and outsourced solutions that build businesses” Joan said. “We help clients identify the high impact areas of their business and then support them with experts in that area and their industry. If we could not keep our own team focused, how could we help our customers?”

CorePurpose answered this tremendous challenge by deploying GoalCentrix in March 2003 and immediately had clear visibility to the execution of their strategic plan, all of their customer opportunities and effective communications with CoreAlliance Members. “The biggest increase in productivity came from the increase in communication effectiveness” Joan said. “Instead of conference calls, meetings and other gatherings to keep track of where we were on various projects, we simply used the email and report capabilities in GoalCentrix to keep everyone connected.”

Since using GoalCentrix, CorePurpose realized an 80% increase in communication effectiveness, a 50% increase in productivity overall and a 300% increase in bottom line results. “The difference between success and failure takes more than a strategic plan – it takes a framework for strategic execution. GoalCentrix is giving us that” said Joan.

“GoalCentrix is providing businesses with the process and system needed to achieve better bottom-line results” says Dave Riley, President and COO of GoalCentrix. “CorePurpose shows just how far a small organization can go using GoalCentrix to drive the execution of their business plan. We are proud to be a member of the CoreAlliance.”
