This study adopted a descriptive survey design since a descriptive survey design is intended to find out what people currently believe in and the situation at the moment. The target population comprised all the 134 employees in the management position at New Kenya Co-operative Creameries Company Limited. The study used both primary and secondary data. Correlation and regression analysis was used for analysis. The study findings indicated that reinvigoration of firm leadership strategy, focus on core activities, cost management strategy and financial restructuring strategy positively affects financial performance of organization. Therefore the study recommended that in order for the New KCC to improve its financial performance, there is need to restructure its top management team to improve management efficiency, review the TMT’s tenure to spur commitment as well as review the firm’s TMT to reduce redundancy as a robust and structured mechanism to track progress throughout the year. The study also recommended that there is need for the firm to focus on determining the markets, products and customers that have the potential to generate the greatest profits, focus on product lines for which the firm is best known, focus on customer segments that are particularly loyal or less price sensitive, close loss making operations and develop a clear competitive strategy in its chosen core act to improve its financial performance.
