- Are always short of cash even though their business is growing
- Don’t know how their business is doing because of its cyclical nature.
- At making the profits they expect
- Find it hard to know what items to focus on.
Don’t worry; there are common problems that businesses face at nearly every stage of growth. We can help! Forget the thick staring at financial statements looking for a hidden answer. Financial improvement comes from an understanding of your cash flow. What are the drivers of profit and cash flow in your business? What are the KPIs to be watched, both leading and lagging, across the company and by function. We work with companies to identify their Profit/X, which they can use to drive decisions in the organization and measure results.
