Winning in a changing world
It is clear from history that a downturn – and the early stages of recovery that follow – provide opportunities for an organization to dramatically improve its position. Moreover, businesses that take advantage of turbulence generally retain their gains in the subsequent economic upswing.
While recent hints of a rise in business confidence suggest early signs of economic recovery, nobody can confidently predict when the global or individual economies will regain momentum.
That said, it is a question of when, not if.
The business landscape has been significantly changed by the global financial crisis and the subsequent recession. How organisations react and manage coming out of these volatile times will be critical for their positioning and performance.
So, how can you effectively position your business to get a head start on your competitors?
At Deloitte, we believe it’s about understanding the impact of nine key issues on your business, assessing your capability to deal with them, and planning now for recovery.
These nine key issues are grouped according to:
- external impacts: global economic order, sustainability, and regulation
- business portfolio impacts: business model disruption, growth and innovation, and M&A
- organization and leadership impacts: capital and funding, data and information, and talent.
The landscape beyond the recession is already taking shape – are you prepared to tap the right opportunities for winning in a changing world?
