 Afterburner Biography

Afterburner Inc. is a team of elite military professionals who are experts in helping organizations of all sizes pursue Flawless Execution. Using Afterburner’s Flawless Execution methodology, we can help take your team to the next level in performance. This nationally acclaimed combination of sound organizational development and combat-proven methodologies has made Afterburner Inc. one of the fastest growing training and consulting organizations in the country. The Flawless ExecutionSM Model is a proven process used by elite military teams around the world to execute missions when the stakes are high and failure is not an option. Corporate success, like success in combat, depends on execution.

Afterburner’s team of elite former military professionals has a powerful mix of combat experience combined with extensive business skills, many of whom are graduates of top business schools and academies. Afterburner uses the combat-proven methodologies of high-performing military teams to train your team to achieve victory in a rapidly changing business environment. Flawless Execution works is dynamic and powerful because it is simple to use, yet the effects are lasting. The results are disciplined, coordinated, and predictable. Afterburner has an unwavering focus on improving your team’s ability to execute. Your team can improve execution on any initiative and stay one-step ahead of the competition in just four simple steps.

The Flawless Execution Model:

Plan – All missions need plans, and planning with the Flawless Execution model is unlike any process you’ve tried. Your plan is developed from a comprehensive, six-step process that starts with an objective that is clear, measurable and achievable and supports your company’s overall strategy and ends with a fully developed mission plan with accountable actions, contingency planning, and incorporates all threats, resources, and lessons learned.

Brief – Before the mission, you communicate the plan. It is essential that people on the front lines know exactly what is expected of them. Businesses ignore this—often at their peril.

Execute – Even with a solid plan and a good brief, a mission can still fail due to Task Saturation® or task overload. Task Saturation is the reality or perception of having too much to do without the time or resources to accomplish it. Even with the resources people still have to manage conflicting priorities. We know that as Task Saturation increases, performance decreases; therefore, at Afterburner we help teams combat Task Saturation by identifying resources and managing priorities.

Debrief – The last step is the Nameless, Rankless DebriefSM. After each mission, fighter pilots hold a debrief where each person, without fear of reprimand, rehashes what worked, what did not work, and why both the good events and the bad events happened. We then take the key lessons learned from the Nameless, Rankless Debrief and apply them to the next plan. Debriefing speeds up learning and allows us to fine tune the processes that ensure success.

Win! – Our goal is to win by aligning your team around a disciplined, scalable process in order to accelerate team and individual performance to achieve better results.

With offices in the United States, Australia, and Brazil, Afterburner has performed training events in 24 countries with training materials and books translated into more than 20 languages. Performing more than 300 events per year, the Afterburner team has trained more than 85% of the Fortune 50 in the continuous improvement methodologies of the Flawless Execution Model. At Afterburner, “Accelerating Performance through Flawless Execution" is more than just a slogan—it's the foundation of our company and the success of our clients has translated to our success as well.
