Working backwards—starting with the end in mind—let’s look at each SWIM® element in turn…


The most obvious measurements for any business are sales, gross profit, net profit, and return on investment. There are many financial ratios and key performance indicators (KPIs) which are well established in the areas of accounting and finance. However, it is not quite so clear-cut measuring the effectiveness of a sales and marketing plan, the individual programs within that plan, and the performance of the people executing those plans.

SWIM® enables our clients to see the progression towards the established financial goals and objectives—and directly ties back to the overall success of the business.


Strategy is a fancy word for “how”—how are we going to achieve our goals and objectives?

Sound strategies are based on an analysis of the business and the competitive environment in which you operate. Our SWIM® Coach will help you undertake the necessary research, develop your growth strategy and define the action plan. Each action will drive towards your objectives.

Implementation of SWIM®

Ocean 5 Strategies® focuses on the implementation and continuous improvement of sales and marketing processes in order to achieve sales and new client acquisition goals. And, through our management consulting services, we extend our reach into other areas of business that are impeding—or could enhance—the success of the sales and marketing programs.

Strategy and Implementation are both equally critical—further illustrating the importance of the silent “AND” in Strategy With Implementation AND Measurement®

“Pure Genius! The marketing strategy workshop with our executive team was excellent. We now have a clear direction and an executable plan.

We are looking forward to working with Ocean 5 on the implementation phase.”
