What do business leaders need to do in order to shape a company of the future?


Business model boundaries that, were once firm and inflexible, will need to be rethought as the pace of change and uncertainty are omnipresent factors. Therefore the ability of a CEO and her / his senior team to reshape an organisation's structure in a way that supports innovation and dynamic change, is vital to success.


It is clear that outsourcing strategies will play a significant role, with workforces being a combination of both internal resources and external specialists. Building on this will be the formation of collaborative relationships with other industries, competitors and communities, propelling us into an era of co-creating, co-working and sharing. Combined, these will provide experience, economies of scale, creativity and diversity.
