Crunching the Numbers – Is It the Only Measure of Success?

Every Senior Leader I know in Australia has started crunching the numbers, gathering data and preparing to present budgets to their Boards. Are they missing something?

I’m so glad I did those few semesters of accounting when I first left school. I get how it works and I love contributing to meeting targets, reviewing progress, and reading the reports that shed light on the strategic and operational performance of the organisation.

But I know financial reporting only tells part of the strategic story.


"Crunching the Numbers Only Tells Part of the Strategic Story", says Tarran Deane CEO Corporate Cinderella Leadership


In my work as a Change Agent, working with enterprises and NFPs, happens through helping map Values into the numbers game and ‘the way we work around here’ to guide how success is measured across all aspects of the business. It’s about being “on-purpose” and keeping the end gain in sight, while embracing the capacity to be agile, innovative and responsive to market trends and the needs of yours clients.
