How ‘mega’ leaders keep profits high

by on
in Best-Practices Leadership,Leaders & Managers

A recent McKinsey study of the world’s most profitable megacorporations finds that their achievements are made possible by some shared leadership outlooks and practices.

In some measure, they all:
  • Explore new ways to build on their people’s talents and skills. Example: GE Capital grew because of the financial insights of executives in GE’s appliance-making divisions.

  • Shed activities that pull them away from core competencies. Example: CitiGroup sold its insurance activities to MetLife.

  • Monitor some extremely simple metrics. Example: profit per employee, which can serve as a barometer for overall corporate health.
