Why Should You Care?
There are many companies around the globe making nice profits but there are only few who are able to do it for year after year without a structure, a planned set of actions.
Successful organizations like General Electric, Toyota, Motorola, Shell, etc. learnt to use a method that gave them not only financial strength but also more control about the bottom line result.
This method is called Lean Six Sigma, but it’s not about the name. Some companies have their own name, some uses no specific name for it, they just apply the method. Whatever you chose… it is about the consequent, structured application of the method in your own company that will save you money, save you time, simplifies processes and motivates your employees.
If your company doesn’t have a structured way of improving profit month-by-month, year-by-year, then it is your great chance to learn the same method those big companies are using for years and enjoying its benefits.
What I would like you to do now is to read trough this book and start applying this method for your organization as described here.
Why Should You Apply The Method of This Book?
#1 Because your profitability will not solely depend on your customers.
Of course, you MUST provide your customers and clients with the best and highest possible results and tangible benefits. Therefore, you want to get more and more sales. No question about this. But you know this is not the easiest and quickest way to improve your profit because it depends on many external factors you cannot influence.
In this book I will explain you the clear steps and techniques that YOU can apply to reduce your costs and get more control about your bottom line results.
#2 When you think about cost reduction, you think about dismissing employees and squeezing out your suppliers. Not much fun but it has to happen…
My method in this book will show you how you can make significant reductions in your expenses while achieving it TOGETHER with your employees, colleagues in a way that they will enjoy it. So it can be fun!
#3 Making profit is not only a wish but your duty towards your stake holders: your customers (they deserve it to receive your outstanding product and service over many, many years), your employees (they can pay the bills, send children to school, go on holiday), your suppliers (so they can serve you with outstanding products and services), your investors (for a descent return) and the community (your government included).
So you need means, tools and methods that YOU and YOUR ORGANIZATION can apply on a daily base, as a “way of life”.
That’s it for now. Looking forward your reactions!
