Transforming the Business

 

Hello,

 

Here, I will be posting and commenting articles – mainly in English and in French – that I find interesting and useful in illustrating way businesses are transforming themselves to become more effective:

  • in addressing evolving needs of existing customers,
  • in finding new customers in new markets,
  • in developing their range of offerings to do this.

The focus will be on stories that tell how companies transitioned from a myopic “business-as-usual” culture to a vigilant and dynamic culture embracing change and innovation.

 

If you want to send me an article that you have come across that does this, please do so and I will publish it here. My email address is: jonathan.woods@eukalypton.com
