The Yes Box: How Step-Change Thinking is the Key to Growing Sales in a Shrinking Economy

by John Warrillow

In a shrinking economy, many businesses focus on cutting costs and reducing prices to stay afloat. However, in The Yes Box, John Warrillow argues that this is a losing strategy. Instead, businesses and their process improvement consultants should focus on creating new value for customers and solving their problems in new and innovative ways. Warrillow calls this approach “step-change thinking” which goes beyond incremental improvements and instead, makes bold changes to the business model, product offerings, and marketing strategy.

Profit First challenges the traditional accounting approach, which focuses on tracking expenses after revenue is generated. Supporting the Financial Strategies & Growth concept of the 4 Points of Focus™, Profit First advocates for allocating revenue into different buckets, including profit, expenses, taxes, and owner’s compensation, before any money is spent. This approach helps business owners to prioritize profit and ensure that they are always making money, achieving profit optimization, even during tough times.
