3-Levers is a quick and easy method non-financial people can use to dissect and tie back numbers underpinning key elements of their business to overall strategy, helping them to steer on the path to success.
It’s an easy-to-follow narrative taking a strategic view to profit, breaking down the main drivers or levers, i.e. sales, direct costs and overheads. Once front-line people understand the language of profit, it opens an untapped communication channel and you’ll be in a much better position to leverage their expertise. It makes aligning the organisation with a common goal of increasing profit much easier when the front-line understands the bottom line.
An Amazon best-selling book, 3-Levers (author David Dillon B.Bus FCPA MBA) walks you through the relationship of strategy with revenue, direct costs and overheads. He provides examples from many of the most recognisable brands in history, as well as touching on consumer behaviour, procurement and employee motivation. David draws upon his education and 30 years of corporate experience to illustrate this simple system, used by many expert company directors.
Relate to examples from some of the biggest brands in history, such as Nike, Ford, Apple, Blackberry and Rolls Royce. Also included are extra chapters on revenue forecasting and cash-flow management, both essential to managing a successful business.
Ask 30 experts for the best way to improve profit margin and you’ll get 30 different answers because there is no magic wand, no panacea. But ever since Aristotle said “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” in 300BC mankind has known about the synergies of teams.
Don’t underestimate the contribution front line managers can make. Years of experience and observations can be tapped into if you know how. Most front line people have the capacity to learn the fundamentals of profit, but simply have never had an opportunity to learn about it in the past in the past.
Open this untapped communication channel and you’ll be in a much better position to leverage their expertise and align the organisation with a common goal of increasing profit.
It’s so much easier when the front line understands the bottom line.
