The New Capitalist Manifesto:
Economic strategist Umair Haque argues that business as usual has outgrown the old paradigm of short-term growth, competition at all costs, adversarial strategy, and pushing costs onto future generations. These outworn assumptions are good for creating only “thin” value—gains that are largely illusory and produce diminishing returns every year.
Haque details five cornerstones to achieve the new “thick” value—enduring, meaningful, sustainable advantage that deeply benefits the larger society and will ensure prosperity into the 21st Century.
(Attendees of this forum will receive a free copy of Umair's book.)
PwC's 14th Annual Global CEO Survey: Growth Re-imagined
The last three years have tested everyone’s mettle and ability to weather significant storms and changes in the global business community – none more so than the leadership of our largest companies. PwC’s annual survey of CEOs on how they are approaching growth in the post-crisis business environment addresses key several concerns:
How is the global economy shaping corporate prospects?
Are customer demand patterns driving innovation?
Can the global skills gaps be bridged?
Where do businesses and governments share priorities?
Source for Consulting Current Buying Trends in Management Consulting:
Newest data on the market for consulting services shows that demand for specific consulting services is fluctuating wildly at the moment: rates are rising and falling from one quarter to the next, and the rules – formal or informal – by which clients engage consulting firms are being re-written. In fact the over-riding sense, from a reading of latest buying trends data, is that this is a time of enormous change in the consulting industry.
Fiona Czerniawska, Managing Director of Source for Consulting, a research company that follows the consulting industry closely, and a panel of AMCF Board members will present and discuss the newest findings about what buyers of consulting services are considering today when hiring consultants.
