21st CENTURY CHALLENGES
The capital economy has drastically shifted in the last few years, exposing systems and processes that are insufficient to support the next phase of global development, one that is sustainable for everyone: people and the planet.
Uncertainty in markets and government structures, both in the developed and developing world, are posing corporations with tough new development challenges. Good performance is now dependent on seeking growth in new markets, drastically innovating value offers, and exploring multi-sector partnerships and social enterprise initiatives.
This shift has implications for the type and cost of capital, to expectations of timelines and results, and very importantly to the type of managerial skills needed and the way they are developed inside an organisation.
