Closing the Productivity Gap with hard work collaboration and blue ocean strategies
Economists have long argued that as a nation the UK has under invested in research and development, and that generally smaller businesses are reluctant to make the capital and training investments that drive enhanced business performance and productivity. Against a background of well-developed capital markets, why is it that UK Plc has been unable to capitalise on technological innovation or create a stronger culture of entrepreneurialism to be the source rather than the recipient of best practice modern business globally?
Paul Winter, board member of the Management Consultancies Association and CEO of Live Strategy, argues that you the leaders of UK business, specifically the powerhouse of businesses based in Yorkshire, have the potential to make in-roads into the productivity gap. If only they could source affordable, trusted, implementable strategies and advice to help their business make the changes to take them from survive to thrive .
This can be achieved because Yorkshire SMEs, with their inherently entrepreneurial and determined cultures, need a new generation of consultancy professionals, who can provide a new type of advisory services to instantly help their businesses continue to learn as they grow and become 20% more productive.
