The world around business is changing fast, throwing up new opportunities but also fresh risks and problems. All at a frantic rate creating a faster lifecycle in which companies are established, expand, contract and potentially die.
In a range of different surveys Chief Executive of large companies were asked to highlight the issues they saw as posing the biggest challenges to their business. The issues that featured frequently included:
- Uncertainty about the future.
- Globalisation & associated increase competition.
- Technological innovation.
- Innovation & change.
- Regulation & compliance.
- Information overload & exploding data.
- Reputation management.
Some of these challenges such as globalization, technology, innovation and big data also present major opportunity. More than ever business success is depending on recognizing and grabbing opportunity while also managing risk and overcoming challenges and problems.
Our view is simple, business performance is built on the behavior of your staff. Their talent, how it is implemented, organized, co-ordinated, communicated and expressed is responsible for driving business performance. The decisions made, action taken are ultimately what mitigate risk and solve problems.
Consequently having your workforce ‘behavior fit’ is the central plank of business success. Essential for sustainable excellence not a human resource luxury.
Depending on your business objectives, its status and the nature of your staff then the requirements to optimize the behavior of your staff will vary. Examples of issues targeted for optimization include:
- Leadership for sustainable success.
- Talent recruitment & development.
- Key team selection, structure & working method.
- Organisational culture & values.
- Change management.
