Making Strategy Happen

For most companies, making strategy happen is extremely difficult.  Not because they don’t have a strategy, but rather because organizational strategies are often too difficult to describe in four sentences.  Even the best leaders will struggle with the right words to use.  Go ahead -- try!

This means priorities for decision making create challenges for leaders when hard choices must be made; having a clear strategy enables leaders to say “No” to daily obstacles which simply get in the way of the big picture.

So today, we welcome you to the inaugural issue of the TayganPoint newsletter. Each quarter, we’ll provide you with content you will need to make smart, strategic decisions about your business -- practical, applicable advice that can help drive profitability and growth.

Please let us know if there is a specific topic you'd like to hear about in a future issue or, if you'd like to be a guest writer, please email us at

When considering the increasing manufacturing costs, quality challenges, shipping and stock coverage issues, how sensible is it really to put all manufacturing eggs in one Asian basket?

Bikes, Burgers & Beers Event at TayganPoint
Susan Peters, TayganPoint

On Wednesday, July 30th, TayganPoint hosted over 70 cyclists at our Lambertville offices as part of our very first ride-along event, appropriately titled:  Bikes Beers & Burgers. 

The 20-mile ride, which included two members of the Fearless Femme women’s pro-cycling team, explored various parts of the Lambertville countryside before converging back at the TayganPoint offices for beer, burgers and good cheer.  Clients, prospects, and friends of both TayganPoint and Pure Energy Cycling were in attendance, enjoying the beautiful summer weather late into the evening. 

The night’s festivities also brought gifts, as TayganPoint received our very own Fearless Femme jersey signed by all of the members of the team.  The jersey now hangs proudly on the wall in the TayganPoint offices as a symbol of our sponsorship of the 2014 team and on-going support of the very talented ladies of Fearless Femme Racing.
