As many of you know, our company specialises in procurement and other related technologies, with an emphasis on growing people.
Like many small business owners our desire is to leave a legacy: To create employment, develop young people into good leaders, give our children the best education and support the under-privileged.
We understand that many of our customers owe their initial success to a unique strategic position involving clear trade-offs. All our activities were once aligned with that position. But I am wondering how many of us have compromised that alignment to synchronise with our rivals.
Although our company has only been around for four years I find myself drawn back to our founding place, to reconnect with our initial strategy.
