Michael Bitter - Professional Background
I began my career with a large technology company in the mid-1970s. Shortly after joining the company I was recruited to join a new business unit that was being formed to provide technology-enabled business process products and services. During the next 10 years, I worked as a programmer, application designer, and software-enabled business process engineer. In that role, I designed and delivered solutions to some of the largest businesses in the world — including work on the earliest CRM systems. And, that work — designing and implementing CRM enabled business processes — became my passion.
I loved the work but never lost my desire to own my own business. So, in the early ’90s, I decided to leave the nest and build my own technology consulting business. Over the next 10 years, my partners and I built a successful business — using many of the things I had learned as a business process engineer — including the application of CRM software to drive profitable business growth. In June of 2000, my partners and I sold that business. And, so began another chapter in my career.
I never lost my passion for working with small businesses. And, following the sale of my successful business I had many small business owners approach me for advice. I found that I loved teaching, coaching, and mentoring small business owners on how to put CRM and other technology-enabled business processes to work in their business. That led to my next career and business — which I have been doing now since September of 2000.
Working with small business owners has been a two-way street. I have learned as much as I have shared. And, my work with small business owners was the catalyst for my signature work called the Business Growth Engine™ — a concept I developed to explain business growth concepts to small business owners and a framework around which to implement CRM solutions.
Over the course of my career, I have been involved in the design, development, and implementation of 50+ technology-enabled business process projects. I have provided coaching and mentoring to 100+ business owners. Nearly all of those projects have involved some application of CRM software technology. So, I have developed significant expertise. And, I have combined that expertise with the passion I have for helping small business owners build better businesses to create Biz Development Strategies and the courses training and consulting services I offer.
