How to Influence Enterprise Strategy
While the global and local economic outlooks remain murky, enterprises continue to invest to improve key functional areas such as supply chain, the finance function or other priorities. In some cases, this is simply to maintain share against competitive pressures; in others, it’s an attempt to take advantage of a crisis and take share from struggling competitors. Regardless of the reason for the investment, enterprises must not forget to also focus on employee performance. Learning and development has never been more important to organizational success than now as companies transition from crisis to regrowth.

Karl Wabst's insight:

While I agree with much of this article, the comment that we have finally found a floor to the economic crisis was cringe-worthy.

 

Companies that hope to survive shouldn't be waiting for crisis to bottom out before investing in learning and organizational development. Markets have been in crisis of one sort or another for many years (VUCA).

 

The fiscal cliff is just the latest financial crisis that has scared firms away from investing in their people. With the vast number of firms selling similar products and services (commodification), the differentiator in our markets is customer service provided by internal and externally-facing staff.
