Competing in the New Capital Markets
Competing in the new capital markets
- The newspapers are full of stories of phenomenal success and
inexplicable failure, as well as companies that live on and on in mediocrity. Each generation brings with it new ways of using, selling and improving upon technologies together with new challenges for those who fund them and those who execute them.
- The paradigm that has been set in the technology sector is now
influencing all other sectors, including yours. The change in the manner in which companies do business – the speed and flexibility that must be built into any organisation – is paramount in ensuring their success.
- The lessons that can be learned from technology, and technology
companies, can be applied to any organisation that wants to be competitive and not simply survive, but thrive.
