Value creation: high-impact levers to pull

  • Share

Session recap

High-growth companies have multiple levers to pull for creating value, but knowing when to pull each lever is still up for debate, according to a panel of C-suite executives and advisors.

“Companies should always try to optimize cost structure, processes and balance sheet,” but they must think about what will add customer value and revenue, said EY’s Tom Taylor.

But margin improvements start with changing cultures, noted Mary Petrovich of The Carlyle Group. “Too many people think cost reduction is someone else’s responsibility,” she said.

Steve Baggott of Procter & Gamble added that “open innovation had become a key driver in our business model for top-line growth."
