The first phase in improving profits includes a business and management analysis of the company, checking to see that the company focuses on profitable activities and foregoes those activities that are not profitable. It also involves setting up work processes to achieve a constant improvement in the efficiency of the various departments in the organization and the interaction between the departments. This is accompanied by provision of effective management tools while setting up an efficient reporting mechanism in connection with the Company’s financial position.
