If there are two axioms in business it is that (1) change is inevitable and companies that are successful learn to harness it and not fight it and (2) companies struggle with growth. In particular, many companies find themselves wanting “new” (where new can be defined as new markets, new products, new geographies or new business models) but are worried about putting their existing business models, revenue, customer relationships and quarterly earnings at risk.
In preparation for a new business book, Michael Kerman has embarked on researching this topic by conducting 1:1 interviews with experienced CEOs, CFOs CIOs. While many of these executives have managed through these challenges during their career, they have also faced many obstacles and even encountered some failures.
During this discussion, we’ll talk about some of common obstacles, share some real-world stories and even come up with a few best-practices.
