NASHVILLE, Tenn. – April 19, 2004 – Point Balance LLC, a provider of management education materials and related resources for executives in the printing, publishing, and converting industries, today announced an indefinite leave of absence of principal William K. Lavelle. G. David Dodd, remaining principal, will continue to grow the business while Lavelle departs to pursue a major industry initiative.
“My time at Point Balance has been one of the best career experiences of my life,” states Lavelle. “I’m confident that David will continue to provide quality executive education and training to our marketplace benefiting companies in transformation.”
“Bill helped lay the foundation that Point Balance will use in assisting companies to make the transition into our future successfully” Dodd states. “Point Balance wishes Bill the best and looks forward to collaborating in the future.”
Point Balance Publishing is seeking publishing relationships with other seasoned industry executives who are interested in writing implementation guides that assist companies in making the transition into an ever- increasing competitive environment.
The Point Balance Publishing transition theme is intended to be attractive to forward thinking executives who are seeking condensed, mediated knowledge from other industries who have successfully navigated the very same challenges facing the print, publishing and converting industries. Many busy executives simply do not have the time to research the vast amount of information available about modern management subjects such as: Activity-Based Costing, Value Added Services, Business Process Management, Sales Compensation, Risk Management, Strategy, and other management disciplines.
For many companies, “Ink-On-Paper” models will become de-emphasized and other business operational models will grow in importance. As such, we become more and more a part of the general business community and need to adopt proven management tools associated with fellow industries.
