Ways to Fix a Broken Business 

Business Failure Diagnosis and performance management improvementIn the wake of a landslide of top American corporations such as Enron, WorldCom, Global Crossing, Kmart, Polaroid, Arthur Andersen, AT&T, Xerox, and Qwest falling into disarray, research was conducted into why sophisticated and capable companies with huge talent pools, assets and infrastructure had gone so bad.

CEOs blamed bad economy, market turbulence, weak exchange rates, natural disasters, competitive foul-play and other variables they claimed were out of their control.

However, closer scrutiny of corporate failure found one common factor: Management failure.

Reasons why business failed included:

  1. Corporate Arrogance: Less optimal decision making due to over-confidence after prolonged periods of success.
  2. Lack of Objectivity: Companies avoiding difficult questions, denying need for change and refusing to alter a bad business model.
  3. Politics before frank and open candour: Cultures where subordinates feared telling C-level bosses hard truths.
  4. Risky Decision Making: Bad decisions on both  "Execution risk" and "Liquidity risk".
  5. Undisciplined merger & acquisition program: Described as lust for growth, accumulating assets for the sake of accumulating assets.
  6. Profit gouging and focus on ROE at the cost of human resources: Cost cutting wages to boost annual figures
  7. Lack of planning: Reaction rather than action: Tactics rather than strategy.
  8. Absence of Alignment. No engagement, focus or collaborative agreement to empower front-line employees to make the right decisions.
  9. Downward Spiral. Desperation breeding desperation with cost-led management rather than market-led business development.
  10. Incompetence at Board level. Corporate boards appointed for political rather than performance based reasons.

Summarily, the research determined, many failed companies would have continued to prosper with more enlightened management with companies levelled as a result of "an incremental descent into poor judgment."

A "sales-not-marketing" oriented culture, mind-numbing complexity, and unrealistic performance goals all mixed until the violation of standards became the standard.

From retail to FMCG, professional services to industrial commodities, Launch Engineering will almost certainly determine the missing links to join you to sales, profits growth, and performance that may never even have previously been thought possible.
