9781576751084: Profit Building: Cutting Costs Without Cutting People

Profits and people are often seen as competing needs in business, but in Perry J. Ludy's view, cultivating a loyal, productive workforce is crucial to business success. In Profit Building, Ludy -- who has worked for top companies in every major field from manufacturing to retail -- outlines a new approach called PBP (Profit Building Process), specific techniques for improving profitability by stimulating creative thinking and motivating teams to work together more effectively.

This program gives business leaders a daring yet accessible approach to increasing earnings without the shortsighted solution of layoffs. Using step-by-step examples, Ludy shows how to encourage employee participation in an atmosphere where creative problem solving flourishes. This entails the systematic application of four interdependent concepts: teams, innovation management, brainstorming, and action step planning.

From the Publisher:

"Profit Building is a clear, easy-to-read book on how any organization can achieve profit improvement. Ludy has included real-world examples, coupled with his many years of management experience, to illustrate how using a systematic approach, a company can find innovative solutions and ideas to reduce costs."Lionel L. Nowell, III, Senior Vice President and Controller, PepsiCo, Inc.

"Applying these concepts can dramatically impact organizational change and profitability. Ludy has synthesized his key business principles into a boilerplate process that can be applied to any business. The system is laid out in a concise step-by-step fashion designed to walk you through the procedures."Brion G. Grube, Senior Vice President of Operations, Wendys Restaurants of Canada, Inc.

"Profit Building is clear and concise from the first page to the end of the final appendix. . . . A timely aid for managers, at any level, who are interested in successful organizational innovation."Hala Moddelmog, President, Churchs Chicken
