Speak to any business man or woman today and the subject of conversation will almost always fall within the boundary of tough competition, cost reduction, shrinking market share, globalization, and cheaper labour in some countries. Yet despite these facts, there are organizations that seem to be ahead even though they face the same threats as their competitors. So if outside factors are affecting all, they must have done something good internally for them to stand out from the crowd. One of the reasons is in how they measure the work. It is the aim of this program to share the measuring techniques for enhancing competitiveness – you cannot control your destiny unless you put your own house in order.
