Technology is accelerating the speed of change, increasing competition in the marketplace and forcing business leaders to be agile and innovative in order to stay ahead of competitors. Where some companies are falling by the wayside, others are excelling in decision-making and execution.

Right at the outset they think about how to establish a culture of innovation, how to align innovation and investment decision-making, how to prioritise resources to the right areas and how to streamline the myriad of decision-making processes to manage implementation and measure results to drive continuous improvement.
