Welcome to our third UK edition of Thinking Business – where we aim to share our expertise and ideas with you to support growth and sustainability in your business.
In this edition, we are focusing on the theme of productivity and critically considering ways in which businesses across the United Kingdom might drive up productivity through innovation, creativity and adaptation. As we move towards Brexit, there is no option for organisations to stand still or rest on their laurels and stakeholders are hungry to see management driving stronger results. Responding to Brexit throws up many issues on a day-to-day level, however we have decided to focus on some of the bigger picture themes that we see our clients addressing in today’s climate.
This publication looks at productivity across the board, and we have specifically chosen to share some of the things our clients are talking to us about, such as:
- Developing a people strategy;
- Getting more out of supply chain relationships through the use of revolutionary technology such as blockchain, innovation and smarter contractual arrangements;
- Making the most of social media, and thinking more carefully about the risks, opportunities and potential returns; and;
- Investing for the future, considering themes such as reshoring in the context of owner-managers investing in plant and machinery for the longer term.
