Six Figure Management Method gives professional managers a simple, proven and universal method for improving the profitability of any business unit or organization by measuring and improving just six key performance indicators.
Measuring performance and improving profitability are essential for successful business growth. However, authors Patrick M. Georges, who created the widely used Management Cockpit system, and Josephine Hus demonstrate clearly that standard key performance indicators can be overly complex and therefore ineffective in managing productivity.
In Six Figure Management Method Georges and Hus show that if you measure and improve just six well-selected KPIs, each of them simple to understand and easy to calculate, the profitability of your unit or business will soar. Based around these six measures of performance, this practical handbook for managers presents a streamlined, straightforward framework for managing your activities effectively on a day-to-day basis, while remaining directed towards achieving long-term strategy and goals. Growing sales, managing customers, managing productivity and profitability, motivating personnel, project management and overall organization design are consistent business challenges. This guide cuts through the noise with easy-to-apply, down-to-earth tips, and a new perspective that managers will find useful as they pursue enduring business growth.
Based on survey results from interviews with hundreds of executives from around the world, Six Figure Management Method provides the information executives, entrepreneurs, and business people of all types need to systematically deliver long-term success.
