The environment for business today is characterized by increasing competition and accelerating change. This new intensity is manifest in so many ways, from proliferation of new entrants to the on-going revolution in information technology. To succeed in this climate –and keep abreast of new and emerging developments – organizations must innovate and change.

This raises a dual challenge. Organizations need to be more innovative than their competitors; they must also ensure that their innovations actually happen – quickly and efficiently, with minimum disruptions in their day-to–day operations. This requires that organisations must not only apply fresh thinking to gain insights on the issues and opportunities they face, but also design and deliver feasible, pragmatic solutions based on those insights.

Business change- be it acquisition, re-organisation or globalisation – demands new people resources. However, skilled resources are scarce particularly at senior management and specialist levels.
