Welcome to the new millennium!
Within the past 30 days, I have logged 5,500 airline miles and interacted with over 100 business leaders from Providence to Portland. Everywhere I travel, I am encouraged. Executives are expressing optimism and hope for 2010. Even leaders from the top banks– one of the most conservative (and precarious) sectors of our economy — are investing again in growth and innovation.
Maintaining a positive outlook is a good start. Yet few companies are clear about where they need to invest to harness the economic recovery. Instead, they are taking a "wait and see" attitude while their competitors pounce on new markets and innovations.
How can you harness the economic recovery and create a more sustainable company…and perhaps even position your business for sale in the future?
