Time to Grow Significantly and Profitably

The cost of capital at present remains relatively lower than we have experienced in the past. For some businesses the real term after-tax cost of capital is almost zero.

This indicates that in many cases, growth strategies will add more value to businesses than improving margins by pursuing increasingly challenging cost savings.

What can businesses do about this?

Re-Calibrate the Processes Used to Allocate Resources
  • Look to increase the focus on growth opportunities
  • Invest in productivity/ performance improvements rather than reduce costs
  • Review formal and informal decision making processes
  • Re-set hurdle rates for investment proposals

Such changes in strategy are not without risk so they should always be implemented with care. If current margins are too low there is still scope to improve via changes to pricing and costs. But the balance has changed.

We at Tinderbox have much experience of creating and executing both strategies. We have the talent to identify and select the best options for your business and if required support execution of the plans. When we initiate growth plans for our clients we deliver significant and profitable growth and not incremental improvements.
