Top 6 profit* priorities of leaders around the world

* For not for profit organisations, read profit as surplus of income over expenditure

Part 2 – In Part 1, last week, I focused on people priorities.


6  Value of Company – “What is the fastest way to increase the value/share price of our company?” – Top Tip – Identify and focus on the 10% of your activities which bring in 90% of your value.

5  IT Packages – “How do we realise the full benefits from the money we have already invested?” Top Tip – Never modify a purchased package – modify your processes and most importantly, behaviour.

4  Priorities – “How can we get people to put the organisation’s priorities above their own and those of their function?” Top Tip – You can’t! – All three must be aligned and as one.

3  Commercial – “How can we make and save more money, know how to financially measure more and remove the word intangible?” Top Tip – Hold your leaders accountable for accountables.

2  Customers – “How do we win more customers/clients at the right value, get them to really like us and be loyal?” Top Tip – Sell, without selling – build trusted relationships instead, especially informal ones.

1  Projects – “How do we reduce the number so we are more focused on a few – and how can we ensure all projects are delivered, every time?”  Top Tip – Request our one pager!

Priorities based on conversations with CEOs, blogs/articles, enquiries to us and work with our client partners.

If you need help with any of these actions or the 1 pager on projects please email

With my love and best wishes to you all

  1. Bringing in that margin having focused on what makes your business the most money is key.
    It needs a great deal of analysis and retrospective thinking to pinpoint what that main 10% of the business is making the most money but worth it.
    It’s a bit like a cycle team time trial though. You do also need to be as good as your last rider, so important to pick up those areas that are not performing so well.
