Today’s Tip

This week I’m discussing the “organizational assets” (OAs) you must build to give your company the best chance of long-term success.

Today’s OA is PPE (Plant, Property and Equipment).

When I was a teenager, I made a lot of money shoveling snow. I used that money to buy a snow blowing machine. Equipped with the snow blowing machine, I was able to remove snow ten times faster than my competitors. This allowed me to dominate the market.

So, please think about this today:  Can you make investments in plant, property and equipment that allow you to cut costs or increase output?

Previous Question: Why are transaction costs important?

Previous Answer: They can reduce profit.   

Transaction costs are the costs incurred in making an economic exchange.

For example, if a convenience store has a profit margin of 5% with cash transactions, but credit card transactions cost 5% of the purchase price, then the transaction cost of using a credit card wipes out the profits. This is one reason many businesses prefer cash.
