Principle #3: Maximize Probability for Success
Think of entering a store as a customer; implications of a good vs bad quality store
Takes a lot of time and effort
Need to maximize probability of success by being in the important databases and making sure they are consistently updated
The database can often be a first impression
"If you owned a store you would put attractive objects in the window- on your resume you would never describe yourself as an under-performer"
What the consultants look at first
What Are Databases Used For?
Role Of Consultant Databases
Consultants match managers with their client's investment objectives
Consultants compile information from the databases to review managers on a monthly, quarterly, and annual basis
