Driven by a profit first strategic orientation, estimates suggest that 77% of CEOs are now focused on driving organisational efficiencies despite the fact that some 35% of growth plans never achieve their original business case.
The challenge of how best to achieve these operational efficiencies, without stifling sustainable growth, is undoubtedly at the heart of the issue for the majority of firms.
Even for the most experienced leadership teams there is a constant challenge around how to develop an appropriate strategy, the right organisational structure, the most appropriate systems, the right organisational skill base, and an engaged and competent workforce with the right core values to maximise the organisation’s profit potential.
Unlocking the ongoing challenge of creating sustainable rates of growth and profitability requires organisations to recognise the need to focus on improving productivity and quality of products, service and support, as well as simply reducing discretionary spend and overheads.
By way of example the 36,000+ UK based scale ups not only invest considerable focus into areas such as operational effectiveness to drive operational efficiencies, but they also develop specific profit growth strategies that typically take the form of;
- Increasing Market Penetration
- Developing New Markets
- Developing New Products
