I remember not too long ago when ‘2020’ seemed but a mere idea. But here we are today. This past decade has seen tremendous shifts in both politics and the marketplace – all of which has made for exciting (and challenging) times in the world of management consulting.
In our own work at PEMANDU Associates, I am proud to say that we have stayed the course – approaching each new opportunity with a renewed drive towards a steadfast goal: to deliver Big Fast Results for our clients and partners. But as always, beyond the business or socioeconomic results we’ve helped our clients to deliver, we’re most proud to have seen transformational leaders rise up within our clients’ organisations as well as our own!
As I have said before, in transformational leadership, there are no failures – only successes and lessons learned. As we enter the new decade, I took the opportunity to develop some pointers – and opportunities – for the next ten years.
We’ve seen a lot of trends come and go over the past decade. There are some which have been particularly impactful on businesses around the world; I’ve written more on that subject here.
All in all, I am convinced that while the new decade won’t be without its challenges, we are thrilled about the tremendous opportunities ahead of us to bring Big Fast Results to life for our clients and teams.
Let’s get on with it.
