In addition to serving on multiple advisory boards, Saltzman co-founded Culture Measures in 2015.

Lean Strategic Plan topics include: How to articulate your brand and core messaging, optimize and align your leadership team, fully understand your market and ideal target client/situation, create value proposition through mind map exercise, identify client acquisition strategy, growth and scaling options and long-term sustainability, and more.
