How to survive and thrive in crazy times

The best companies of tomorrow are being created right now. Now is the time for business leaders to step up, to have the courage to look ahead, with more purpose and passion, to create a better business for the future.

57% of today’s largest companies were created in a downturn. A crisis accelerates change, it disrupts the old codes of business, it forges new ideas and loyalties. Consumer priorities change and new behaviours emerge. Now is not just the time to survive, but to thrive. As Intel’s Andy Grove said “Bad companies are destroyed by crisis, good companies survive them, great companies are improved by them.”

Now is the time to recode your business – to refocus your people on a more inspiring purpose, to reimagine how value is created and shared, to reinvent your market as well as your business. The top quartile performers in a downturn typically outperform their markets 3 times more than in normal times. Now is not the time to be average, now is the time to be extraordinary.
