Improvement Groups

Coming Together to Maximize Your Profits

Business Improvement Groups (or BIGs) consist of 10-12 non-competing members. The group will become a close network of advisors that you can call upon when you have any business issue facing you that you would like input from outside the company. 

Here are some significant facts about the Taylor Business Group’s BIGs you should be aware of:

  • BIGs are not management retreats. They are executive management focused reviews and conferences.
  • They are not member lead. They are facilitated by coaches trained in facilitating effective group meetings.
  • BIGs do not involve group techie talk. They focus on business discussions that help implement efficiencies and processes in your business to drive more profits to your bottom line.
  • The group meets twice per year in person for a two-day meeting. The other ten months, the group has a 90-minute conference call.
