Making a big profit is an obvious main objective for any business.
Sometimes it is true, sometimes it isn't.
Giant companies where ownership and management are separated have an agency problem.
This is where the objectives of the people who are making the decisions don't match the objectives of the owners.
The shareholders want larger profits, higher dividend and a higher share price.
The senior management gain more in status and financial rewards by managing a large company.
That's one of the reasons why there can be many mergers and acquisitions.
For an owner-managed business, the agency problem doesn't exist.
But the oner may still be prepared to trade-off profit, time worked and effort to find some ideal compromise.
Many owners of small businesses don't want to manage a large business with thousands or tens of thousands of employees. That's why there can be this difference between entrepreneurs and business owners.
Despite these comments, more profit is good.
Few owners or managers can resist the chance for making more profit with little more effort.
Let's have a look at the articles I've published about profit.
