Change is crucial.
Creating 21st Century Industry Services Organisations
Don’t Tinker — Transform
The white paper highlights several developments in recent decades have re-shaped the industry services landscape. They are the following:
- trade liberalisation
- domestic deregulation
- digital economy
- the influential public
Crucial concepts are dissected through brief case studies and non-nonsense insights backed by expert opinion and relevant statistics.
Business or industry services organisations (ISO’s) have been around for centuries, often playing a vital part in the history and success of modern industries. They play a pivotal role for businesses and their performance can influence and shape an industry trajectory for the better, or for the worse. In the unfolding knowledge economy, industry services do matter and perhaps more than at any time in modern history.
Businesses operate in an era where speed, scale, relationships across value chains, connectivity with consumers and adaptability are critical for success. They must be agile to thrive. Yet industry ISO’s today are often characterised by fragmentation, low and unrepresentative business participation, formal hierarchies, declining authority and weak evidence of value for money.
