Welcome to Olympus Controls’ websites. Hello, my name is Scott Hendrickson, the Founder and CEO.
I have lots of people ask me what is the “Silver Bullet” for our consistent, long-term success over the last decade. We think it is really as simple as hiring the right people (actually not so simple), focusing them on the right accounts (again not so simple), and having them engage in the right behavior (even harder still) – these efforts will eventually yield the right results.
To continue to thrive as a business, we must look ahead, understand the trends and forces that will shape our business in the future, and move swiftly to prepare for what's to come. We must get ready for tomorrow, today.Our annual operational planning (working in the business) and our strategic planning (working on our business) create a long-term direction for our business and provide us with a "Roadmap" for winning together with both our clients and supplier partners.
I would guess that less than 10% of companies our size actually engage in any formal business planning; however, we have found that these planning tools are essential in getting everyone in the company pointed in the same direction and working on the same objectives.
I am most proud of all the phenomenal people we have been able to attract to the business. I consider them the key ingredient in our “secret sauce.” Many of the original people I hired when we opened our doors 15+ years ago are in key management roles and have helped shape the company to what it has become today.
