What’s on the Agenda for 2010?

A Focus on the Core Drivers and How to Achieve Them

We’ve spoken to hundreds of our members who’ve identified their business priorities for 2010 to include the following: reducing operating costs and optimising working capital, architecting the best service delivery for their organisation, reducing bad debt, accelerating cash- to- cash cycles, improving controls, gaining shareholder value and getting closer to the customer. It all comes down to enhanced service delivery and the ability to embrace change, govern effectively and explain the ROI of your activity. To do so, you must understand what the consequences will be for not addressing. Watch for agenda items that specifically address these pressing issues.
