Henke Associates announces Special Edition of PTK

Special Version of Planning Tool Kit now available


ALBANY, Calif.  14 September 2009 - Henke Associates, a respected high-tech business consulting firm headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area, today announced an End of Recession Special Promotion – a special edition of its oft-praised Planning Tool Kit (PTK) used by entrepreneurs as a guide to effective business planning. For the next three months, the special edition of the PTK will be available from Henke Associates for the reduced price of $1000.

“The U.S. economy is finally turning around,” said Dr. Russ Henke, founder of Henke Associates and principal PTK author. “The time is right for launching bold and innovative ideas. But many would-be entrepreneurs are unsure of where begin the process or how to crystallize their thinking. The answer: develop new, unique and powerful Business Plans”, said Henke. “My colleagues and I have evolved and refined the contents of the Planning Tool Kit over the last thirteen years via engagements with clients during which we worked closely with them to develop refreshed or brand new business plans. In virtually all of these assignments, our consultants spent considerable hands-on time with the clients’ planning teams, guiding the brainstorming process and assisting in their planning efforts. These personnel-intensive engagements cost these clients up to $20,000 each. Whenever a client chose to execute his/her own planning activity, the historical purchase price for the PTK alone was $5000 minimum. With or without follow-on consulting, everyone who has purchased a PTK in the past has been pleased with his/her results,”

“But now we’d like to expose the PTK to a larger market,” said Henke. “To do so, we developed a Special Edition of the PTK that will sell for only $1000. This price also includes for a limited time at no-extra charge up to two (2) hours of expert after-purchase business planning consulting advice by telephone or by e-mail, if the purchaser desires to seek such advice. This special “End of Recession” offer will last for 90 days, ending on December 15, 2009.”

Orders may be placed by contacting Henke Associates via its web site at www.henkeassociates.net or by calling Dr. Henke at 510 287 9168. The PTK Special Edition will be sent to the purchaser via e-mail attachment or CD as soon as the US$1000 payment is received.

The Special Edition of the Planning Tool Kit is meant for both aspiring managers as well as seasoned managers interested in improving or mastering the art and science of developing and writing marketing plans and related Business Plans for their design ideas, for helping to establish new groups within larger companies, or for creating a whole new enterprise. PTK purchasers can gain knowledge of proven techniques for advancing fresh product & services ideas, for seeking in-house support from upper management, and/or for seeking outside financing for an entrepreneurial venture. PTK aficionados can improve individual and group skills in data gathering, hypothesizing, reviewing, synthesizing, strategizing, writing, editing, and decision making. The general focus of the PTK is on “high-tech” companies and products, but the techniques are versatile and can be adapted to other industries and markets.
