Top companies around the world turn to Jonathan Byrnes to figure out where the profit is. He can show them which parts of their businesses are worth expanding and which are just a drain on resources.

Byrnes reveals an uncomfortable truth: It's possible, even easy, to have everyone in your company meet their sales targets and still lose money. He explains how to rethink your business for maximum profit. He also destroys harmful myths, such as:

All customers should get the same great service
If everyone does his or her job well, the company will prosper
