Business Game Plans For Success
A recent report released by American Express with research conducted by ACA Research (our sister company) revealed that nearly one out of four mid-sized companies do not have a game plan. Considering that more than half of these businesses predict no growth in the immediate future, it is clear that businesses can no longer afford to focus only on their short-term goals. According to the survey, companies that have a long-term game plan tend to perform the best. Growth is the most popular priority amongst game planners, and it is closely followed by improvements in technology, better operational efficiency and more skilled staff. But the fact that Australia ranks 21st amongst the 32 countries surveyed for innovation by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) shows that there is a long way to go.
