Welcome to the Resources Area of Competitive Impact – Business Coaching.

On a monthly base I will publish simple tools which work and deliver tangible results for you and your organisation. My goal is to provide you with easy to use concepts on a regular base applied by anybody who wants to make an impact. The tools provided are coming from different sources and have been applied successfully by myself on various occasions.

The Tool of the Month introduces you to concepts, which really work and are not just the latest management fad. Competitive Impact generally does not surf on any wave and is focusing on to generate tangible benefits for its clients. 

The Tool of the Month comes as a pdf file and can be copied from the site. Access to the Resources Area is free and does not lead to any further commitments.
