The TAB Strategic CEO Program is the world’s most powerful resource in the world for private business owners


It offers the following benefits:

Improved Decision Making: Executives have few people to turn to for seasoned advice and the unbridled truth. By providing a forum where premier CEOs can test the trial without the error, the TAB Strategic CEO Program helps members route out the core issues and critical success factors, to avoid potholes and to make informed decisions.


Increased Agility and Flexibility: Small businesses must be nimble enough to react to change and strategic enough to outmaneuver competitors and market forces. The TAB Strategic CEO Program offers the vital perspective leaders require to make the right moves at the right time in order to grow and prosper.


Validated Thinking and Fresh Ideas: The Alternative Board TAB® provides the most effective sounding board for a CEO's toughest decisions—fellow chief executives who have encountered and overcome similar challenges. Fresh ideas and perspectives are the fuel for any organization's continued growth and innovation.


Strategic Planning and Recurrent Business Health Check-Ups: Working with a Certified TAB Facilitator-Coach and using the multiple resources in the CEO ToolKit©, members will develop a bullet-proof operational business plan. They will also have everything necessary to monitor critical indicators in order to run their business in the most effective and efficient manner.


Increased Focus and Performance: TAB member companies consistently outperform their competitors. TAB members understand what to do, how to do it and why they are doing it. They know how to focus their personal energy and the resources of their organization in areas that will provide the greatest return on investment. This increased clarity and improved focus provides accelerated revenue growth, increased valuations and the peace of mind of knowing the company is well-position to continue to strengthen and prosper.
