About Ruthven Institute

Vision & Strategy

The Ruthven Institute is dedicated to helping businesses achieve world's best practice in terms of profitability for success.

Phil Ruthven founded the Institute guided by the principles of planning one’s business from the outside in and managing from the inside out. His keys to success revolve around the importance of strategic planning based on long life cycles in business, as well as the external environments that affect these decisions.

Changes in these 12 environments, shown in the exhibit below, all have an impact upon business decisions over time.

The Institute’s online product suite consists of an in-depth guide to business success (e-book), monthly insights and a comprehensive and growing database of the external environments in which businesses operate.
