Electrosmart is an electronic publishing company focussed on providing
information that is easy to understand and readily actionable.
Electrosmart started as an extension of years of corporate management consulting by the
publisher, Gail La Grouw. Other experts are engaged in specialist fields to provide a complete
suite of knowledge solutions.
Gail started consulting in 1980 to small ventures, assisting them
in defining strategy and gaining venture capital. In 1990, after
many years of venture investment work and having worked for a number
of years as a pilot of corporate aircraft and commuter airlines,
Gail recognised the value of the disciplines used in flying complex
aircraft and how the systems structure was not that different from
corporates. In any machine or organisation there are a number of
distinct funcitonal parts working together to a common outcome.
The major difference was that in aircraft, there was nothing there
that was not needed, and all critical information was presented
real time, and in an easy to read format.
Gail took this concept to large corporates, streamlining their
operations toward aircraft operational standards. A critical element,
was that operational strategy MUST be aligned with regularly reveiwed
commercial strategy. As new technology emerged, Gail focussed on
assisting high tech companies struggling with rapid, and often uncontrolled
The years that followed covered many types of industries in NZ, Australia and the UK, with
a major focus on mobile data telecommunications. During this journey Gail mentored a number
of small technology start-ups and saw first hand how lack of strategic and operational knowledge
were preventing great ideas from reaching sustained commercial production. She also witnessed
the increasing intelligence turn-over in large corporates, where consultants were often
used, and knowledge not sufficiently transferred back to the organisation.
Both of these issues led to the concept of providing accessilbe, affordable knowledge and
consulting solutions that can be used by small business and corporate alike, such as:
- Commercial Strategy [Business and Marketing]
- Capitalising High Tech Ventures
- Dynamic Organisational Structures for Growth
- Integrating New Services to Existing Businesses
- Sales Skills for Technology Products & Services
- Project Management
- Demand Planning/Sales Forecasting
- Process Design and Re-engineering
- Software Requirements Management
- Software Vendor Selection
- Distributed Stock Management
