Whether your business is manufacturing or providing services, both your survival and profitability depend on continuous improvement.
In the 70s, the model was Cost + Profit = Price; and demand exceeded supply. In the 80s, it was Price – Cost = Profit; and margins were squeezed by cheap imports. By the 90s, the model was transformed to its current form: Price – Profit = Cost; and organisations must eliminate waste in all its forms to survive.
