In this speech, author and multi-industry investor Mark Thompson discusses how to keep your business as efficient as possible. To keep pace with accelerating rates of change, he suggests viewing stability as a threat. Without setting stretching goals, companies lose drive, ambitious and standing in the corporate world.
Describing the business world as being prone to atrophy, Thompson argues that companies must always be on the lookout for different ways they can enhance strategy and methods. It is important for leaders and managers to ensure that a company doesn't grow comfortable with the way it functions. Setting goals and constantly trying to predict change are two crucial habits to develop in the business world today.
