"In the normal course of running a business, maneuvering against competition and trying to grow, one seldom takes time to look at their business from a strategic perspective. Since I have been a study group member, I have found myself paying much more attention to longer term business trends and Balance Sheet issues. The interaction with other members is a great stimulus for new ideas, new business opportunities, and new ways to address old problems. There is no better way I know of to get good comparative data by which to analyze my own company's performance than by belonging to a study group. "
