Business Resilience and Competition
The success of all companies, both those that only operate domestically or are engaged in international markets, is determined by how well they are able to successfully navigate the increasingly rapid changes in risks and growth opportunities that characterize today’s markets throughout the world, enabling them to outsmart their competitors. In a nutshell, resilience in business operations should be at the heart of a firm’s strategy, informing decisions—both short- and long-run—taken by the company’s executive team and the board of directors that oversee them. Which operational corporate strategies have proven to be most effective in balancing the mitigation of risks and the pursuit of growth? What lessons should be drawn from the practices pursued by the most successful companies across a variety of sectors and geographies in achieving agility to outperform rivals? As a veteran business practitioner and international banker with enormous on-the-ground expertise working in numerous sectors and geographies; private equity investment executive; advisor to C-suites and boards; and professor of global corporate strategy, Harry Broadman shares his practical insights on what he is seeing as the most effective approaches today to enhance business resilience.
