There are three kinds of organizations; those who make things happened; those who watch things happen; and those who wonder what`s happened.
If we do not change our direction, we are likely to end up where we are headed.
As the world spins into the challenging phase of economy, both citizen and business wonder what is ahead. There is not only change, but the rate of change is accelerating. A twelve-year old girl said of her ten year old sister, “She is of a different generation.” Her younger sister listens to difference music, plays different videos, knows different movie stars, has different heroes.
Organisation or companies often fail to recognize that their marketplace changes years to year. Last year winning marketing strategy may become today`s losing strategy. As someone observed, there are two kinds of companies: those who change and those who disappear.
Today`s economic landscape is being shaped by two powerful forces- Digitalization & Globalization. The Digitalization landscape today is dotted with new products & services offering, one would not have thought that one day world will be lockdown and everyone shall work from home, using various digital platforms. Making marketing & sales call through video calling, taking meeting through video conferencing, government will run their cabinet meetings through video conferencing digital platforms. Technology drives the second major force, globalization.
Besides digitalization & globalization, other forces are reshaping the economy e.g. deregulation, privatization, etc. As the pace of change accelerates, companies can no longer rely on their former business practices to sustain prosperity. Few point below compares business assumptions and practices that were practiced then with the one is being practiced now.
