The Fortune Finder: a Maximum-Results Tool for General Managers
It’s now possible for general managers and their direct reports to maximize the profits and near-term revenue growth of the
business they run, using a new management tool we call The Fortune Finder. With it, they can find their best shots—the most powerful things they can do to boost profits and grow near-term
revenue in their business, and that they can realistically pull off.
What The Fortune Finder Does…
There are more than sixty (and counting) legitimate actions that general managers can take to boost the results of a
business: optimizing prices, product/service design, more effective marketing messages, leveraging technological progress, improving customer’s experience, etc. Some of these will bring big gains in a particular
business.; others won’t amount to much of anything.
The set of actions that together will bring the best gains are different for every business, because every business has
unique talents, opportunities, constraints and financial characteristics.
The Fortune Finder will show you the actions that will maximize results in your business and that you can really pull off. Your best shots.
What Will Finding These Best Shots Bring?
We worked with the $22 million US division of a booming international marketing and distribution company. It was
growing at 30% per year, with an operating profit margin of 16%.
They used The Fortune Finder and found 6 specific actions they could take, their best shots, that
together would boost their 30% annual revenue growth rate by another 14.5% over the next 36 months, while raising profits by 147% and increasing their operating profit margin from 16 to 23%, as shown here. Full Case Study
