Volatility is the new norm. In today’s new normal, global uncertainty is here to stay. For example, according to the M&A Advisor Market Monitor, M&A remains at 50% of pre-recession levels. With plenty of cash on the sidelines, this statistic is noteworthy. How is this same concept affecting your business?
Executives are still concerned about making decisions with minimal knowledge of what will occur tomorrow – what will happen to their key customers? How about core suppliers? Will cash reserves have to be used? Will talent be available?
With this level of volatility and complexity, talent is essential. Who else will innovate and find answers to these puzzles to achieve their strategy? Thus, those executives who prioritize finding and retaining top talent will thrive. What is your strategy and plan to succeed?
