What sets the world’s top companies apart from their rivals? They’ve become Fit for Growth* by doing the same three things to build competitive muscle and cut corporate fat. In our newest book (and minibook), Fit for Growth: A Guide to Strategic Cost Cutting, Restructuring, and Renewal, we explain how your company can follow their lead. You thrive by focusing your investments on a few differentiating capabilities and reducing costs everywhere else. As a leader, your ability to make deliberate choices about where to invest depends on accepting a strategic reality: Some expenses are better than others. By making the tough decisions that align your company’s costs and organization with your overall strategy, and trusting people throughout the hierarchy, you will create lasting value and sustainably outperform your competitors. These four insights will help you get started on the path to becoming fit for growth.
