SOAR takes Ohio companies higher

Hey, just heard about a Cleveland-based company that has been recently recognized in the national media. The press release says:

SOAR to Strategic Excellence™ is a unique business process improvement program that evaluates a company’s health and helps to identify areas of potential growth. Traditionally, this type of evaluation process takes 4 to 6 weeks, however, SOAR accomplishes the task in a 1-day workshop. The program was invented by Larry Goddard, President of The Parkland Group.

Industry recently covered the results that SOAR brought to Chardon Rubber Company; most notably that it helped them to increase margins by $1 million in one year. This is good news not only for Northeast Ohio’s economy but for manufacturing, distribution and construction companies nation-wide that are strained by global competition.

Larry, congratulations. As one transplant (I'm from Chicago) to another (you're from South Africa), it's nice to hear you've come to make a difference for Cleveland companies.
