  6. 6. The C-Suite Lament • We did not see it coming. All my Divisions’ Analytics pointed North while my Business as a whole (in comparison to new competitors and the Best-In- Class in multiple industries) went South. 9/18/2013 6WWW.SIMMETHOD.COM
  7. 7. Disrupting the Way we Measure Corporate Risk and Performance There are three main problems: 1. The lack of a single industry-agnostic scale to measure and predict Corporate strategy/execution (competitive advantage) leads to erroneous and inconsistent C-Level decision-making 2. Silos-analytics lead to erroneous C-level decisions based on many versions of the truth 3. Lack of C-Level risk and performance visibility accentuated by inward-looking industry metrics 9/18/2013 7WWW.SIMMETHOD.COM

  9. 9. Towards a Single Index to Measure Competitive Advantage • Comparing the elephant legs or ears against peers’ legs or ears leads to incorrect conclusions (This is what traditional benchmarking does) • The strategy/execution or competitive advantage of a Business can only be assessed holistically and it is not the sum of its parts 9/18/2013 9WWW.SIMMETHOD.COM
  10. 10. Towards a Single Index to Measure Competitive Advantage SIMMETHOD’s industry-agnostic algorithms holistically find the Best-In-Class Businesses in a range of industries and only then calculate Best-In-Class and low performance profiles. These Best-In-Class and Low Performance profiles and risk alerts act as management sensors connected to a GPS to: 9/18/2013 WWW.SIMMETHOD.COM 10
  11. 11. Towards a Single Index to Measure Competitive Advantage • Alert you of your risk and opportunities within and outside your industry, • Predict your performance against your peers and the Best-In-Class across multiple industries and • Fend-off current and future competitors coming from inside and outside your industry. 9/18/2013 WWW.SIMMETHOD.COM 11
  12. 12. Towards a Holistic Index of Corporate Risk and Performance • Currently, there is no single industry-agnostic scale to measure and predict Business or Value- Chain strategy/execution (competitive advantage). 9/18/2013 12WWW.SIMMETHOD.COM
  13. 13. Towards a Holistic Index of Corporate Risk and Performance • Conventional analytics measures silo by silo (ratio by ratio) and then adds up the sum of the parts but the problem is that (a star team is not the same as a team of stars) 9/18/2013 13WWW.SIMMETHOD.COM
  14. 14. A Star Team (Strategy/Execution) Is Different Than a Team of Stars 9/18/2013 WWW.SIMMETHOD.COM 14 • Unlike conventional analytics, SIMMETHOD’s algorithms holistically find the Best-In- Class teams (Strategy/ Execution) first and only then prepare C-Suite profiles and risk alerts for each Business function(e.g. HR or sales)
