Operating & Execution Model
Growing our business profitably.
At Caterpillar, our goal isn’t to simply grow the business. Our enterprise strategy for profitable growth means investing in areas with the most potential to create value.
To accomplish this, we use the Operating & Execution (O&E) Model. It helps us identify whether individual areas of our business are creating or consuming value. We use facts and data to understand which industries are most attractive and what it would take to win. We then implement strategies to improve our competitive position in profitable businesses and allocate resources to areas that have the best potential for future growth.
