Everything to day and next week on Management are time tested.

We introduced the 5.15.80 Model at the beginning of the Season. It was a combination of research into small business performance and our practical experience from the last 2 decades. You could go to any area around the global with a market based economy and randomly select 1,000 companies, here is the distribution you would find: 5% or 50 companies that own their markets, 15% or 150 companies that are making money, and 80% or 800 companies that are barely surviving.
This series is about how to move from one level up and our concern in this series is the 80%, not how you get here - that story would be too ugly. The focus now is how to create a long-term future for the business and join the 15%.
