How can we hold managers accountable?

By developing pay for performance strategies you can incentivize your managers to get the job done. The general rule of thumb is “what gets measured gets done!”

What external resources do business owners have aside from Vistage or similar groups?

One option is the Advisory Board. We frequently partner up with outside consulting groups like Profit Builder Network (PBN), to establish Advisory Boards for our closely held, non- attest services, clients. Ownership/management selects member for these boards that have a range of relevant experience that is focused exclusively on the needs of your company. The typical advisory board has quarterly meetings with monthly calls between meetings. Generally, members are also available for questions or discussions with management as the need arises.
