Profit Center Management

Left alone, each profit center should be expected to maximize its own value system. It is the central authority's responsibility to optimize the combination of profit centers.

Companies should express profit objectives for both the profit center and its manager in terms of absolute dollars of profit for the planning period, which are based on the projected potential of existing resources to generate cash flow.
