Mismatched Aspiration


Intention is not in doubt. Acceptance of the need for transformation is almost universal. During the last decade downsizing, restructuring to fucus on core activities and reengineering became commonplace. Corporate organizations are now seeking to make the transition to more flexible, responsive and resilient networks embracing customers, suppliers and business partners that can create new opportunities and survive shocks. Gowever, companies are finding the translation of intention into reality intractible and elusive. Expectations have not been fulfilled, and intentions have been “blown off course” by the swirling winds of economic adversity.
