OpenView Labs Publishes New eBook on Operating Reviews

OpenView Labs, the operational consulting arm of OpenView Venture Partners, released a new eBook today entitled, “Quarterly Operating Reviews: Moving Your Business Forward by Looking Back.”

The firm’s latest eBook explains the benefits of these important meetings, and provides practical tools and advice for executing them successfully.

“Once expansion-stage companies raise growth equity, it’s all about execution, not capital,” explained Brian Zimmerman, OpenView’s managing director. “Quarterly operating reviews focus on improving, adjusting, and refining executional performance. It’s the one meeting that consistently makes a difference in how a team performs.”

Operating reviews are executive-level meetings that allow companies to improve, refine, and adjust their executional performance while also equipping them with the strategic direction and focus they need to achieve their business goals. For expansion-stage companies in particular, they are a critical component of any systematic approach to realizing goals and being successful.

In addition to making the business case for quarterly operating reviews, the eBook provides a series of detailed instructions and checklists to help readers prepare for, successfully execute, and assess the meetings.

“Operating reviews create a framework for young companies to develop a clear strategic plan and focused implementation process,” said Zimmerman. “We’ve seen the positive impact they can have time and again with our portfolio companies and are happy to share the best practices we’ve accumulated more broadly.”
