Looking ahead to a changed industry

Hay Group clients are moving beyond the trap of short-term, recession-oriented thinking to consider what the industry will look like in 2010-2011 – then setting themselves up to succeed.

The industry will look very different 18-24 months from now. Those who were successful in the past won’t necessarily be so in the future. Our clients, such as Microsoft, Philips, Huawei and Siemens:

  • examine how to cut costs effectively by reviewing operating models and identifying the leaders who destroy value
  • understand the concept of ‘auto-engagement’ (people’s passion and discretionary effort being aroused by the brand)
  • know how to work together, both within and outside the organization, to create effective partnerships.

For newer companies, the recession is a real test of their business model. For others, it’s an opportunity to make some fundamental changes to set themselves up for continued success. Hay Group helps both large and small players make their organization work.
