He quickly identifies that the business analysis tools he is using for this small firm are drowning it. He decides to go back to his time as a US Nuclear Submarine Officer and recognizes many similarities. Both his sub & the business have a mission, a small team, limited resources, and a dynamically changing environment. With similar conditions, why was the submarine successful, able to accomplish so much under extreme conditions? What tools did it use? What were its best practices? Marc decides that he can apply the same leadership approach and tools to the struggling company. The results are tremendous.
