Let us say someone has worked on this approach and has done whatever was suggested by me, how does he come to know whether it has really benefited him or not?
If by applying these norms you could find out that your sale has increased by 25% over last year can you say that you have really been benefited?
If you notice that you could earn Rs.1lack more this year because you applied all tricks and techniques shown in this seminar will that be a correct judgment of the benefit?
No. Neither sales nor profit is a real bench mark.
The real bench mark of any improvements in business is PROFITABILITY.
What is Profitability?
Profitability = Profit + Ability
Profitability means ability to make or create more profit out of sales.
Profit may increase by increasing sales,
But profitability can increase only with better business management.
Thus profitability is the exact measure of any businessman’s true abilities as well.
If two businessmen are doing almost similar sales in rupees but if one earns 15% out of sales and other earn 13% out of sales, the first one can definitely be said to be working with better vision as well as systems.
Profitability will tell you whether one is working harder or smarter!
Profitability will tell you whether a company can sustain the dangers and competition of future or not…
