Balancing demands in a competitive professional and business environment is a common theme for our clients. To build, or in some cases, hold market position, is increasingly tough as local markets are tight, online businesses offer exciting alternatives and competition from non-traditional providers is increasing.
Our clients already have very full and challenging workdays, because they are highly skilled functional specialists at the top of their profession. They are also responsible for managing their businesses, there are logistical and focus challenges for them as individuals as well as for the leadership team. Businesses that have grown rapidly, often through the personal efforts of the founders, can be hampered by legacy business and computer systems. Knowing which business opportunities and customers to chase and what not to pursue, and investing in the right systems and people to support competitiveness and growth, requires a new kind of focus and management approach from leaders.
