Presidency change? It’s the same old, same old
(page 2 of 2)
I believe this is a perfect time to move forward because the fundamental business trends have rarely been clearer — and one will overwhelm all the others. As I’ve been saying in this space, the skills gap is quickly morphing into a body gap. We will not have the people we need to continue with business as usual. The businesses that address this trend with an integrated strategy that includes talent, technology, and techniques will find new opportunities to expand their operations as competitors struggle to react.
So, don’t buy the hype. We’ve seen uncertainty around presidential transitions before. This time is no different. Take advantage of the situation and make the small bets that will move your company forward. If you’re paying attention to the fundamentals and moving decisively, you will be ready for anything that emerges from Washington.
