Australia Mensa Leader Predicts Good Times for Small Biz: 4 Lean-Economy Reasons
Portland, OR & Brisbane, Australia January 11, 2010 -- Australia's leading business thinker brings a new message to U.S. small business on her January book tour: the new Lean Economy is fertile ground for A Major Turnaround in 2010.
Small business drives the U.S. economy and Ainslie Waldron mba says four trends will launch the next success cycle in 2010 with smart companies leading the way.
Success Trend One
New Suppliers - In 2009 small business owners put the squeeze on their suppliers but realized only modest savings. In the 2010 Lean Economy business leaders are seeking out new suppliers with better cost models, new product offerings, and other efficiencies.
Success Trend Two
More Outsourcing - In 2009 small business eliminated all but the most-necessary employees and moved extra work onto the remaining staff. For 2010 smart business leaders are past the panic mode and are outsourcing non-core work as outsourcing firms offer lower costs in the Lean Economy.
Success Trend Three
More Hiring - The 2009 hiring freezes were reactive with managers in survival mode. In 2010 leading small companies will sweep up the brightest and most-experienced of the talented unemployed who bring with them industry knowledge, fresh customers, access to new markets, and revenue-with-profit potential.
Success Trend Four
More Tech Spending - Just as 2009 was a "make-do" year as small business halted technology spending; 2010 will launch a rebirth of tech purchases with Lean Economy managers again willing to invest in efficient smart technologies that reduce costs and drive profits.
Who will benefit from the regeneration of the U.S. small business sector? "Every U.S. citizen" says Ainslie Waldron. "More than 50% of US employment is in the small business sector (companies with less than 500 employees) and a thriving small business sector will, in this cycle as in the last, drive a broad and deep recovery that mega corporate bailouts just can't deliver. In the new U.S. Lean Economy small businesses that adapt to the new landscape will be the big winners for 2010 and in the following years."
