Creating momentum through capabilities

A recent McKinsey report states that ‘In the future, the most successful organizations will develop the skills of their workforce, inextricably linking capability building with business value, and making talent development a CEO-level priority.’

2020/21 has been a challenging time for business. Now as we get ready to return to the ebb and flow of business life leaders are asking if they have the workforce for this new economy.  The business environment has become more complex, dynamic and challenging. In the last year, we have seen:

  • Rapidly evolving consumer needs and expectations
  • Transformative shopper access to goods and services
  • Dynamic and shifting retail landscape
  • Acceleration and fragmentation of media options
  • The emergence of highly focused micro competitors with global reach
  • Stricter social and environmental parameters for business activity.
