New NAPL business development module program offers targeted management solutions

Press release from the issuing company

Paramus, N.J. – The NAPL Business Development Module Program from the National Association for Printing Leadership (NAPL) systematically matches a company's defined business management needs with sharply targeted solutions that will be implemented by NAPL Business Advisory Team specialists. The new program, unveiled at GRAPH EXPO 2010 in Chicago, Oct. 3-6, includes applications for any graphic communications industry business area, from strategic assessment and financial analysis to operations and marketing.

Aligned with the comprehensive NAPL Management Plus business management approach, each of the program's 100+ modules includes a detailed description of the processes that will be involved in addressing a company's precise needs, the deliverables the company can expect to receive, the results that the program will achieve, the amount of time the approaches will require, and the exact costs that will be incurred. Each client will receive a clear engagement proposal that outlines the advisory plan and exact fees.

"Whether companies want our industry experts to work with them on a very specific issue or build a completely customized improvement plan, the NAPL Business Development Module Program enables us to deliver the exact assistance they need within their time frame and budget," said NAPL President and Chief Executive Officer Joseph P. Truncale. "There are no surprises when it comes to when an assignment will be completed or what it will cost. Everything that our advisors will do is spelled out completely before any work begins."

The NAPL Business Development Module Program is flexible, affordable, and tailored to each company's current issues, and modules have been developed to meet the requirements of the Association's diverse membership. Any consulting assignment begins with a review of an individual company's needs by an NAPL advisor, who will work with the client to determine whether advisory services can best be delivered by using a single module, combining several modules into a bundle of services, or creating an annual retainer-based program of work.

Some programs, such as the Performance Indicator Review module, are "one-size-fits-all," with industry-wide applications; others are designed for specific users, such as owner/operator shops, mid-size commercial operations, or large manufacturers. And some modules, such as the Strategic Planning Programs, are available in multiple versions for customized delivery to fit the exact needs of a particular business size and type.

"The strategies and tactics in each module can be delivered in a number of ways," said Truncale. "In general, the most effective approach is for an NAPL advisor to pay an on-site visit to the company, but there other options that may be more feasible or practical, such as meeting at NAPL's locations in Paramus, N.J., or Atlanta, Ga.; getting together via webinar or teleconference; or combining initial on-site visits with follow up calls."

NAPL offers its members a complimentary assessment to determine if they have organizational areas that could benefit from a business improvement program. Using NAPL's Best Practices Assessment tool and follow-up conversation, an NAPL advisor can guide company leaders toward solutions that fit.
