Planning for Growth in an Uncertain and Changing Economy
There is more than one way to respond to a challenging economy. Some companies hunker down, cut expenses, reduce their workforce and wait for boom times to return.

Other companies use the opportunity to innovate new products and re-imagine how they do business. They accept that the world has changed and seek to adapt to those changes by identifying paths that will lead to future growth.

Companies that adopt a growth mentality during a downturn are positioned to enjoy greater success once the economy begins to pick up steam. After all, these companies will have identified areas of opportunity, and will have developed and implemented business plans that target them.

As a senior manager of your enterprise, what should your path be? Can you afford to wait out the downturn? Or, knowing that growth is imperative, do you need to forge a new business plan that identifies opportunities of the future and leverages your assets to seize them?
