June 14, 2017 – Boston, Massachusetts and Atlanta, Georgia – International sustainable profitable growth and enterprise risk management (ERM) expert and speaker Gary W. Patterson recorded a growth oriented video for BusinessTown. https://businesstown.com/shows/gary-patterson/business-growth-strategies-fiscal-doctor/
He discusses 5 themes or blindspots to enable profitable growth or reduce risk. To go deeper in each theme discussed, ask yourself the accompanying question.
1. Customer and product profitability – My business does not accurately know who its 10 most profitable customers are.
2. Change – My company does not know how changes at one of our top 10 customers would affect our own bottom line.
3. Overly optimistic balance sheet – My business occasionally capitalizes expenses that create assets with questionable recorded value.
4. Opportunity cost – My business has an asset it would be better off selling at a loss to free up cash to pursue a more promising opportunity.
5. Puffery – My business paints an overly optimistic picture of our company among customers, vendors, or financing sources.
On a score of 1 to 10 for each of these themes with a 1 being “our business needs to address this now” to 10 being “we have this covered and spending more time on it would divert us from other more important activities,” where can you and should you “do better?”
