Transformation competence is the critical success factor

Change is a constant and continuous process and one that is accelerating. Markets are volatile, dynamic, and intensely competitive. The structures within a company are frequently unable to adapt to these changes fast enough. The logical consequence: inefficiencies. This situation prompts many companies to initiate cost reduction measures, but they often fail to achieve the desired effects of improved efficiency: thoughtlessly reducing costs using the “lawnmower method” destroys important business potential in the long term.
