The industry

The last two decades has seen a paradigm shift in the global market place. Developed markets have seen limited growth and emerging markets are showing signs of slowdown.

In addition, new rules in terms of consumer behaviour, purchasing criteria and media consumption have dramatically changed the way companies today need to define strategies to capitalise on these opportunities.

Where in the past, mass media was key to reach anonymous consumers, companies today need to be precise in the mission to create engagement and interaction with individual consumers, having developed common global traits and lost some of the national distinction.

To succeed and excel in this context, the way companies build their brands and design the organisations are critical to success. Because of this, the people agenda has never been more important.

Attracting, retaining and developing leaders who are right for the task is business critical, and the organisations that recognise this and do something about it will be the winners in the market place.
