企业遇上瓶颈,如何打破常规,突破瓶颈?

您的企业有面对过瓶颈吗?
企业遇上瓶颈,如何打破常规,突破瓶颈?
如果您想创造成功企业,不只要赢得足够的客户、控制好成本,也必须突破常规,甚至可以颠覆产业的作业规范。
如果一家企业没有一个有效的战略,您会浪费您的精力和浪费至少三到五年的时间。
老板,继续看完这篇文章,我会给您赢利战略(Winning Strategy)助您达到成功企业。

赢利战略要符合三大条件

一个赢利战略必须要符合以下三个条件:

第一:如果您的战略不能简单化,您会很难表达出来,那您的潜在客户与团队会花很多时间去消化才能明白。

第二:您的差异化要很明确。您绝不能只说您有差异化,而必须要有很明显的差异化。

第三:您的赢利战略是要不断地重复,要贯通每项您所做的事务。例如,我们YYC超越集团的赢利战略是成功企业家的左右手,我们怎样做到?等一下就会揭晓。

您也许会问,到底要怎样创造一个符合以上三大条件的赢利战略呢?
您必须要设计出您的差异化,要能表达出您给客户的品牌承诺;也能增加公司的利润,甚至能增加公司的现金流。

一旦您可以设计让您整个的营运周转期缩短,例如您现在一年也许转四次,您将可能可以转六次,那变相您的盈利会增加。

“一句简单的话”能提升盈利?

现在我要跟您分享三个真实案例。以下的三间公司显示出“一句简单的话”,带出它们的差异化,又能增加盈利,您要吗?
第一:IKEA,它的一句话是“Flat-Packed”
第二:DELL,它的是“Be Direct”

相信很多老板都知道,家具企业的储存空间是最大的挑战,也会导致运输费用很高。
IKEA的解决方案是Flat-Packed,它们把家具“压扁式地储存”,解决很多储存空间与运输费用的问题。通过它们 Flat-Packed 战略,它的盈利是13%,而它的同行一般只是在于2%。

老板,您知道DELL的赢利战略是什么吗?
Michael Dell在1984年创办DELL。他靠着他的胆量和敏锐的感觉,让他得到很好的成绩。但却在一段时间,一味追求业绩,而遇上了瓶颈,公司开始出现亏损。这时,Michael Dell找来了他的顾问Tom Meredith,他们一起解决DELL的库存。库存天数终于从63天降到4天。

老板,您懂得您的库存天数吗?当您的库存天数是90天时,就表示您一年只可以转4次。
那您懂得如何降下您的库存天数吗?

马上报名我的《业绩倍增系统》线上课程,我会教您计算库存天数及如何利用CCC工具把您的整个营运周转期降下来。那也表示您可以增加现金流与盈利。

除了降下库存天数、营运周转期,我也会教您差异化战略。因为一个好的差异化,是可以明显让您的潜在客户与您的团队,清楚、容易明白您的差异化,而您的差异化会让您的盈利增加。

老板,您可以想象,DELL做了什么可以让它63天的库存天数下降到4天?它也因为做了差异化战略—Be Direct,把生意增长到752亿美元市值的企业。

也许您觉得IKEA和DELL都是大企业,它们才有能力颠覆商业模式。

我现在要跟您分享一个服装企业如何做好它的差异化。

普通服装网店靠什么创出2.18亿业绩?

2007年,男士网上服装店–Bonobos创立。它推出价位适中的合身牛子裤和长裤。经过四年的快速成长,创办人Andy Dunn 经历了瓶颈,许多男士不愿意在网上订购长裤,知道长裤经常不合身。

因此,他设计了新概念—Guideshop (向导店),它只有小小的店面,里面有各种Bonobos的商品供顾客试穿,但店里不卖任何产品,顾客是需要在网上订购。Guideshop是没有库存及管理库存的问题,也没有必要有收银员。客户只需提早预约,一上门就可以有符合自己要求的服务。店里有店员引导客户上网订购,并保留客户资料,以简化日后的采购与服务。

他的赢利战略是:World-Class Fit, an Innovative Shopping

这个赢利战略也被New York Magazine, 誉为Best Man Pants。在短短十年,它也被Walmart 以3.1亿美元收购,2020年的业绩达到2.18 亿美元。

老板,不管您的是大公司或小公司,只要您设计了对而又简单化的差异化,它就是您的赢利战略。
马上来参与我的《业绩倍增系统》线上课程,这是市面上唯一一项同时教您做好业绩、利润、现金的课程。
要设计出一个简化的差异化,难吗?只要参与我的课程,这都不会难!

Oleh Dato’ Seri Dr. Ahmad Zahid bin Hamidi

[Kita sentiasa bersedia memimpin kerajaan sekiranya apa-apa terjadi kepada kerajaan sekarang]

Itu antara kandungan ucapan saya pada Perhimpunan Agung UMNO kira-kira tiga tahun yang lalu.

Perhimpunan Agung UMNO 2018 yang diadakan selepas kita tewas Pilihan Raya Umum Ke-14 angkara fitnah.

Apa yang dinyatakan Presiden UMNO pada hari tersebut telah pun dijadikan kenyataan pada hari ini.

Syukur Alhamdulillah, Terima kasih kepada seluruh pimpinan, ahli dan penyokong UMNO yang meyakini iltizam itu.

Dalam ucapan sama saya ada juga menyebut:

Yakinlah awan mendung yang melanda akan segera berarak, menipis dan sirna.

Jika kita bersatu dan kuat pasti bangkit.Jika kita berjaya mendepani landskap politik hari ini kita akan kembali kukuh.

“We are the better option”. Kitalah pilihan terbaik untuk kembali menjadi kerajaan sebelum atau selepas PRU-15.

Maka itu perjuangan UMNO seterusnya. PRU-15 yang bakal diadakan selepas pandemik terkawal matlamat yang sebenar.

Tujuannya tiada selain demi agama, bangsa dan negara. Demi mengembalikan kemakmuran rakyat dan kegemilangan Malaysia.

Syukur Alhamdulillah, Allah makbulkan segala doa dan hajat kita semua ahli UMNO.

Kepada Allah kita berserah parti keramat UMNO sentiasa dilimpahkan Rahmat dariNya

1家牙科诊所,如何扩展至123家并上市?

老板,您赞同吗?每一家企业的成功或失败,都是“人为”?即使您有超级无敌的商业模式或战略,当人不对,企业也不会跑得远!

中国有一句成语:事在人为。

今天要与企业家们分享一位牙医的成功历程。他是从一张牙科座椅开始,用了13年时间,在新加坡主板上市!

一家普通的牙科诊所,能在25年内扩展至在新马拥有123家牙科诊所及在中国拥有17家牙科口腔医院与诊所(中国东北最大规模),并在新加坡主板上市,靠的是什么?是卓越的商业模式吗?

企业“事在人为”

Q&M全民牙科集团创办人黄震霄医生毫不犹豫地说:靠的是“人”!

所谓“事在人为”,一家企业能否成功与强大,都是因为“人”在做决定。如果没有搞定“人”,一家企业就很难扩展,甚至无法经营得成功!

为您揭盅如何解决股权问题

黄震霄医生在1996年购买了前老板的牙科诊所后,生意便越做越大,在短时间找了不同的股东开了多间诊所,1998年起甚至每一年开5家,增长快速。当他开了三十多家诊所时,股东们对股权有各自的看法,生意就一度陷入停滞状态。

因此,他重新规化他的股权架构与股权分配。

马上报名《生意要做大,股权要规划7.0》线上研讨会,亲身现场聆听Q&M全民牙科集团创办人黄震霄医生分享如何解决股东问题,如何重新规划股权及架构!

👉 https://workshops.yyc.my/newswav-cpss

“人”很难管,您赞同吗?
医生们都很聪明,如果,您是要管一群医生的话,难吗?如果您是管理一群聪明的人才,是怎么管?
还是您宁愿一辈子带着一群不比您聪明的人呢?又或者您认为您自己是全能?您有认清自己与股东们的强项与弱点吗?然后把自己与股东、团队摆放在对的位置吗?

那该如何管理与带领股东与团队呢?

您必须做好三件事:

1. 认清自己、了解股东,清楚自己的强项与弱点,因为没有人是“全能”。

2. 把对的人放在对的位置 (您有把您的股东和自己放在对的位置吗?)

3. 设定“对的方向 ” (与股东们不断地商讨、对焦方向与谋略)

到底黄医生做了什么能管理及带领他的股东、医生及团队呢?后来公司还成功于2009年在新加坡主板上市。这些股东全都是医生,各有各的想法,要管好这么多专业人士,谈何容易。

上市是您想要的终点吗?

老板们,上市是您想要的吗?还是您想要的是传承或者以高估值卖出(Divestment)?

如果是上市,您很清楚知道为什么要上市吗?上市是企业的终点吗?还是,您认为您上市是为了可以传承或套现?

全民牙科Q&M Dental , 在上市前的盈利是300万新币,市值是8千万新币。

黄医生说他们拼死拼活了12年,去年的盈利是2千万新币,市值达到7亿新币!在疫情时候,公司的业绩还是上涨。

到底上市是合適您吗?那在疫情的时候,您又可以如何向黄医生学习,并带领公司往上冲?

马上报名由中国报与YYC超越集团联办的《生意要做大,股权要规划7.0》线上研讨会。我们邀请了这位闻名的医生企业家黄震霄,为您分享他的创业历程及带领众多的股东们成功的上市!通过他的分享您绝对能掌握如何与股东相处,以及了解上市对企业真正的目的。

👉 https://workshops.yyc.my/newswav-cpss

到底上市是合適您吗?那在疫情的时候,您又可以如何向黄医生学习,并带领公司往上冲?

运用儒家思想,加上西方管理的黄震霄医生,一直都秉持着“修身齐家治国平天下”和“先舍后得”来带领股东与团队!他认为,一个企业的成功,并不是贏在战略或者生意模式!而是“人”。那要搞定“人”,一定要懂得搞定“人的艺术”!

犹如中国最出色的领导人之一:毛译东,在最穷的时候,如何“搞定”人!

老板,您赞同吗?此时此刻的我们,像毛译东当时那时候一样的“苦”吗?那我们如何在这“苦”的时候,搞定我们的“人”呢?

股权课不单纯是“股权分配”,股权的拥有者是“人”。YYC超越集团给您股权课程来“搞定人”!

“人的艺术”=五大艺术=企业成功

YYC超越集团是全球第一及唯一教导“股东五大艺术”结合“股权科学”的商业咨询集团。我们拥有47年处理股权的经验,助逾千家企业处理股权问题。我们的股权专家发现,大部分股权问题都是因为无法做好“人的艺术”。

Time to reset

EVERY time I travel to London and Europe, I have been fascinated by the rich history of the nations. When I include old civilisations like India and China, I am always amazed at how civilisations have survived countless plagues and wars.

Due to lack of science and medicine, there were high casualties of human lives in a plague pandemic. Destruction of properties and infrastructures during wars are increasingly very extensive due to bombs and missiles.

Throughout the history of civilisation, there has been different kind of plagues and the most deadly pneumonic plague was the Spanish Flu. A total of 30% of the world population or an estimated 500 million out of 1.8 billion was infected with an estimated casualty of 50 million deaths (about 3% of world population then).

Spanish Flu, also known as the 1918 Influenza epidemic, was an exceptionally deadly global influenza pandemic caused by the H1N1 virus. The name Spanish Flu is a misnomer. The pandemic broke out near the end of World War I and it was only reported by Spanish neutral media, giving the false impression that Spain was the epicentre of the epidemic.

It was reported that outbreaks of influenza like illness first appeared in 1916-1917 in British military hospitals in France and subsequently appeared in military hospitals in Kansas, the United States, in 1918. Is history repeating itself? Nobody will know the true story of the origins of Covid-19.

All we know is that the pneumonic virus has been co-existing with the human population for the last few hundred years. And it will still co-exist with us for the next few hundred years.

The fact that we have to live with Covid-19 virus is a no brainer. The Spanish Flu was most deadly between the years of 1918-1920 and it dragged on till the mid-1920’s before it finally disappeared.

Modern science today has produced effective vaccines and modern medical equipments and treatments that is able to control the pandemic with lower casualties. Together with improved social behaviours, the world is in a much better position now to control and eventually make Covid-19 fade away. Hopefully for another 100 years.

After the world wars, most affected countries embarked on reconstruction efforts and they reset their priorities from war mongering to economic development.

Similarly, after each pandemic, families, businesses and governments have to reset their priorities from health concerns to economic survival, from personal losses to a hopeful future and most importantly, to handover to our next generation a better, safer and more prosperous world to live in.

Here are some thoughts on how Malaysians can reset their priorities starting today:

Lives vs livelihoods

The only way to solve massive unemployment is to help the micro businesses and small and medium enterprises (SME) restart their operations, as this sector is responsible for at least 50% of national employment. Our banking sector has to seriously consider writing off or reducing these debts (accumulated interests) as a form of support for the cash-strapped enterprises.

Having reduced or no income for 18 months has devastated these small businesses. Rich Western countries have helped the industries with furlough pays etc for more than a year but not Malaysia.

The financial institutions should forego their short-term profits in the national interest to help reconstruct and rebuild the small enterprise sector. The multiplier effect of a reinvigorated small-enterprise sector will only benefit the financial institutions immediately, from payment of cars, housing and personal loans to higher consumption which improves trading velocity.

The government can help out too in terms of exemption of penalties for unpaid taxes and the Employees Provident Fund (EPF) contributions while some form of tax or duties relief should be given to the small enterprises.

The main consideration is to allow these small enterprises to use the balance cash available, if there is any left, to restart their business immediately. Give them some breathing space and oxygen when required. Now that health risks will be greatly diminished via high vaccination, we need to reset our priorities to livelihoods. Not a moment too soon.

The only positive change from this pandemic has been the awareness of personal and public hygiene standards that was lacking prior to the pandemic.

Marketplaces and restaurants are much cleaner, homes and workplaces are more sterilised than ever, and hand washing is now a necessary habit. This reset should be maintained if not enhanced further.

Wearing of masks have been an old habit in Japan and China to protect from pollution. Wearing of masks in food preparation and service-related activities are habits that should be perpetuated in the years to come.

That includes wet market operators and poultry farms where the origin of viruses hopping on to humans often occur. Mandatory work wear maybe?

Workplace

This new concept of working from home for fully employed staff members is an experiment with many unexpected results.

My three children and their spouse are all working from home. My wife is complaining of the high electricity bills for air conditioning and the constant feeding of so many adults throughout the day. Can we claim from their companies some living expenses?

Meanwhile their companies are studying the loss of productivity from employees working from home. A general estimate of loss of 20%-30% in productivity seems to be the rule of thumb. Can we reduce their compensation by a similar percentage? Should we reduce our office space by half?

Come to think of it, we do not need that many employees nowadays as before. Since headcount has been reduced, we still have the same performance.

Now we have employees who love working from home and make all kind of excuses of not going back to work in their workplace. This will become a major problem for management.

The other problem is the need to self isolate at home due to close contact with a positive case. Latest news in the United Kingdom, if you are fully vaccinated, there is no need to self isolate if you have come into close contact with someone positive.

We do need to reset this work-from-home concept. Fair policies for both management and employees will need to be set to prevent workplace misunderstanding.

I believe there will be no one policy to fit all the jobs and not all the jobs fit the work-from-home concept. Eventually there will be attritions due to disagreement on personal choices versus management principles. No winners here.

Next week, we will discuss resets on many other issues including government and national goals. This week, we will have a new government or an old government in a new bottle but whatever it is, we know that we have to co-exist with the same bunch of old politicians, at least for the next one to two years.

If you are fully vaccinated, do go out and enjoy your limited freedom and activities. Cheers.

PM-9 Ismail Sabri’s Inaugural Speech

(Kuala Lumpur, Aug 22) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob had just delivered his inaugural speech at 5.30 pm today, after taking his oath of office as the 9th Prime Minister at Istana Negara yesterday to replace Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin who resigned on Aug 16.

He expressed his appreciation to Yang di-Pertuan Agong for entrusting him to lead the country and Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin for all his efforts & contributions during his time as a prime minister.

He also thanked the rest of the parliament for their support, and wished that all government bodies can unite together in order to fight the pandemic.

Sabri mentioned that Malaysia is a country formed by different cultures and religions, but it is also those that tie us fellow Malaysians together as a family.

With new variants continue to surface, he will make sure that the effort to counter the pandemic will be enhanced and continued. He mentioned that Malaysia was one of countries with the the fastest vaccination rate with more than 500K doses being injected per day. He wished that with the continuous effort, Malaysia will soon achieve heard immunity and exit this pandemic.

He said that Malaysia will purchase an additional 6 million doses of Covid-19 vaccine, which are expected to arrive early September this year.

He also urged those that have yet to register to get their vaccination as soon as possible so that the nation can go back to normalcy. He then mentioned that the high vaccination rate in Klang Valley had successfully reduced the number of daily cases, proving that vaccination is effective and important.

Many economic sectors have been affected by this pandemic and in order to reduce the impact, the new government will focus on assisting the SME sector as well as industries such as travel.

He stressed that the young generation is very important to the country. Therefore he will ensure that the new government will listen to the younger generation more.

Since GE14, we have faced the change of two Prime Ministers and governments and this is a lost to the country resources. Therefore, he urged that we should all unite together to make sure that the country can progress forward.

In order to achieve political stability, he concluded his speech by mentioning that he is willing to work with the opposition to handle the Covid-19 pandemic together and invited them to join the National Recovery Council.

To Afghanistan – with love from Malaysia

Pic: MalayMail

YB Ampang (Zuraida Kamaruddin), we have to admit that behind those feisty political speeches, the façade of a no-nonsense politician and the sturdy defiance you took against expert opinion, you definitely have a wicked sense of humour.

On a serious note, when we first read about your offer to go to Afghanistan on a mission to promote women’s rights, it was thought the media misquoted you. We were also wondering if one of our journalists had ventured into satire.

Besides, there was also apprehension if you had been misquoted. What, you may ask? Many politicians have previously taken the easy way out by blaming the media after putting their feet in their mouths.

Phrases like “twisting facts”, “misunderstood what I meant”, and the tired old cliché of “putting words in my mouth” are familiar. In your case, it is apparent that you are doggedly pursuing something close to your heart.

So, we checked with colleagues who said that you did not say such things in or utter these words in an interview or at a gathering. They told us that to ensure you meant every word, you decided to put them in a statement. How clever! How considerate.

You have saved your media advisers and consultants from having to call up editors to complain that the report misquoted the boss. That’s also good because the public no longer have to read denials.

The written statement is the perfect defence when confronted by many cronies and wannabes who would like to get into your good books by admonishing the media on your behalf.

We also believe your offer is not just one-upmanship against former colleagues who find themselves in the unemployed queue.

It is said that an idle mind is the devil’s workshop and having been unemployed for just four days, innovative ideas and plans have cropped up. Just think of the hundreds of thousands of Malaysians who are currently twiddling their thumbs having nothing to do.

Just make a guess as to the number of ideas for humanity that they would have come up with. Even if a paltry 1 percent is acceptable, what a wonderful society we will have.

There would have been no need to walk around in a hazmat suit or pose for cameras holding hoses; there wouldn’t have been any quarrels with experts on public health and the money saved would have gone to Hospital Tengku Ampuan Rahmah in Klang, which is in dire straits due to lack of medical equipment.

But back to your plans. Already, the offers are pouring in. One lawyer, yes, a lady who also has a good sense of comicality, has offered to buy you a one-way ticket but this is if the new administrators in Kabul allow your feet to touch their land.

If you can’t, head to Karachi or Lahore and then travel by road to Peshawar and through the Khyber Pass and arrive in Afghan territory. There will be great sceneries including bomb craters to see.

On reaching your destination, do not propose or introduce sanitisation of the roads, building, furniture and fittings in offices. The Afghans have their own way of dealing with the problem – they just exterminate pests, viruses and humans too.

If you need someone to give Afghan women expert advice on grooming, you can always turn to fellow unemployed minister Rina Harun, who can help, because she knows a thing or two about make-up and make-overs.

There’s also Dr Adham Baba, another out-of-job minister to improve the regime’s tattered image internationally by making conference calls and communicating with leaders of 500 nations. We are certain air suam will feature extensively at his meetings.

Sometimes, our politicians seemed fixated on the happenings outside the country while ignoring the issues in their backyard.

YB, if you are talking of better opportunities for women and girls, I wonder why you did not take a stand against child marriages. No one wanted you to take up cudgels to do battle but the least you could have done as a lawmaker was to convince fellow MPs of the need to protect young women.

Instances of girls being asked to discontinue school and get married are no longer isolated. Would you allow your teenage daughter or granddaughter to marry a man who is old enough to be their grandfather?

The elephant in the room cannot be ignored. Nor will it go away by remaining spineless – afraid to express views for fear of being derided by people on your own side.

Now that you have plucked up the courage to offer to go to war-torn Afghanistan compared with many of your unemployed male counterparts, who would prefer to spend retirement with their grandchildren, can you walk the extra mile for our girls?

While the whole world rallied behind Malala Yousafzai for her stand on education for girls, you could also enjoy the same if your root for empowerment and opportunities for Malaysian girls. Is that asking too much before you step on the plane to Kabul?

It is normal practice to give plum postings abroad for failed politicians or their spouses. Will you consider being our first ambassador to Afghanistan? Although Malaysia will lose a brilliant minister, you must go where your heart takes you.


R NADESWARAN offers a tongue-in-cheek view of the happenings and darndest things said after the government was dissolved.
