Operational effectiveness, individual productivity, a fit for purpose and effective growth strategy, and an adaptability to meet the needs of customers –sharpens a business’ focus, it ensures stronger engagement from employees and it produces better results.
This is a time of unprecedented uncertainty, but there is a way forward. The enlightened leaders that will lead the UK through this period will recognise that the best ways of weathering the storm are often collaborative, home-grown and long-lasting. And in the current market, such a focus will – perhaps literally – pay dividends in the future.
