Business leaders agree that managing in times of turbulence and accelerating change challenges their traditional views of competitiveness and success factors needed for survival and profitability. Today’s managers must deal with globalization of markets, increasing intensity of competition, rapid technological changes, a shift from an industrial economy to a knowledge, human capital and information based economy, demographic changes, environmental challenges, changing value systems and consumer preferences.
The changes in society are forcing companies to consider the views of various interest groups in decision making. Building relationships with customers, suppliers, employees, communities and other stakeholders can become central to competitiveness and form the foundation for a new, progressive and people centered corporate strategy which attacks the sources – not the symptoms – of challenges facing business today.
