Mathile, who formerly owned a large animal food company and is associated with a nonprofit foundation that helps private businesses use approaches to raise their effectiveness, outlines the foundation's professional management system for applying and maintaining professional management in a business. The system uses a direction, operation, control structure, and he shows business owners, leaders, managers, advisors, and others how to use the process to run their business. The system requires that owners step back from the short-term leadership perspective to look at the bigger, long-term picture, and he describes its elements (leadership, strategy, people development, business structure, culture, and performance management) and its application to short-term and long-term goals, as well as uses in interactions with family about business matters, the importance of awareness of impacts on them, and the need for a succession plan.
