It is important that management teams identify the elements that sets their businesses apart from their competitors. However the notion of competitive advantage is more fleeting than it used to be.
Successful companies in future will be built on deep insight and knowledge into the needs of its customers and their employees and an understanding that if you create value for your customers and employees, growth and profits will follow.
These Value propositions should be built on current needs with a medium and long term plan on adjustments based on anticipated change.
The following big events are resulting in radical business transformations, whether planned or spontaneous, in order to survive or thrive:
- Digital revolution
- Multiple generations in workplace at same time.
- Climate change
This will also give businesses many new opportunities.
* New products, services that will impact the business on various levels.
* Flexible operating models where people are measured and rewarded for their performance and results and not for the time spent in the office. (No clock checking).
* Leaders and managers creating a work environment where people are allowed and given flexibility to produce results in the way that works best for them. People are not expected to operate in the proverbial box.
* Processes to be made faster and more efficient, and ultimately lead to products of higher quality.
