Values

Corporate Planning Resources is driven by just one thing – creating shareholder value through fact based analysis and execution. The values that govern our work are:

  • Focus on execution – Do what you say you will do, when you say you will do it.
  • Ask the right questions – Seek the right answers.
  • Understanding the facts will lead to intellectually honest analysis and conclusions.
  • The best ideas should win regardless of where they come from.
  • Know and have confidence in what you know; likewise, know what you don’t know.
  • Tell them what they need to know, not what they want to hear.
  • Question conventional wisdom and established paradigms.

“Judge a man by his questions rather than his answers.”
Voltaire, French Enlightenment writer, historian and philosopher (François-Marie Arouet, 1694-1778).

“It aint't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just aint't so.”
Mark Twain, American author (Samuel Langhorne Clemens, 1835-1910).

“Never confuse movement with action.”
Ernest Hemingway, American author and journalist (1899-1961)

“I'm just preparing my impromptu remarks.”
Winston Churchill, British politician and statesman (1874-1965)
