Insights from Deloitte’s Center for the Edge
Navigating through challenges and capturing opportunities
As companies face increasing competition and mounting pressure, there is a tendency for executives to focus on the short term, immediate needs of their organizations. At the Center for the Edge, we study the long term, fundamental changes that are transforming the world today. Our goal is to provide senior executives with a broader vision and context to help them navigate these challenges as well as specific, strategic advice to capture the opportunities emerging in their industries.
That’s why we’ve created Insights from the Edge which is a regular compilation of the Center’s insights and views on a number of business issues.
