Our mission is to enable our utility clients to reach their full potential by adapting the best practices learned directly from world-class companies.

We are currently planning four best management practices initiatives:
Managing the Grid Business-Model Transformation Process to a Winning Reality—Fall 2022
Prepare for the impending utility business-model transformation by learning first-hand how leading (mainly) non-utility companies have successfully defined and realized entirely new business models.
Optimizing Grid-Modernization Technology Portfolio Investments 
Winter 2022
Learn first-hand how R&D new-technology organizations of progressive non-utilities have led development and deployment of innovative technologies that enable new business opportunities.
Eliminating High-Hazard Deaths and Injuries—Spring 2023

Learn first-hand how world-class safety companies are able to sustain greatly  reduced occupational deaths, permanent disabilities and soft-tissue injuries.


Asking the Right Disaster Risk-Mitigation Questions—Summer 2023


Learn first-hand how world-class companies ask the crucial forward-looking risk-mitigation questions to minimize the impacts of potential disasters.

Contact Ron Doades for more details on any of these planned best-practices initiatives: rdoades@doadesco.com.

Highly successful companies are not seeking perfect solutions---they are seeking winning solutions.
