Unleash your Inner Pirate!! AARRR! A Key to Business Agility

Season #2

In this episode of the XSCALE series, Agile experts @Kumar Dattatreyan and @Glenn Marshall dive into the differences between traditional cost accounting and the newer concept of throughput accounting. Using real-world examples from Kumar's experience at @Agile Meridian, they explore how focusing solely on cutting costs can actually harm overall business throughput and revenue. The discussion covers:

- Definitions of cost accounting vs throughput accounting

- How a cost-cutting approach impacted Agile Meridian's social media strategy

- Applying Eliyahu Goldratt's theory of constraints and "Pirate Metrics" to identify bottlenecks

- The pitfalls of departmental rewards vs optimizing the entire system

- Why a mindset shift is needed to implement throughput accounting While not yet widely adopted, the speakers argue that throughput accounting, used in tandem with cost accounting, provides powerful insights to increase business efficiency, profitability, and customer satisfaction.

This informative discussion will get you thinking about moving beyond cost-cutting to improve agility and performance in your organization.
