The challenges facing businesses today are greater than ever. Ever rising customer and employee expectations, increasing and intensifying competition (coming from further afield), greater transparency, reduction in trust and customer loyalty, squeezes on resources and margins and the increasing pace and dramatic effects of change are just some of the issues the leaders of businesses today tell us they face.
However, many businesses are not only surviving, but are thriving in this ever-changing environment. How are they doing it?. What exactly makes them ‘different’? How do they ‘differentiate’ themselves and what can we learn from them?
They do things that their competitors aren’t, or even better can’t when it comes to what they offer their customers, how they lead their people and how they run their businesses. We call them 3D businesses and they are ‘Dramatically and Demonstrably Different’ from their competitors.
