Thriving Through Change: Embrace Pivots and Propel Your Business Forward

The importance of 'How Businesses Pivot Successfully: What The Research Says'

Are you ready to embrace change and navigate your business towards success in a dynamic and ever-evolving marketplace? 

Do you want to leverage the latest research and evidence-based strategies to pivot your business successfully?

In today's fast-paced business landscape, businesses face the challenge of adapting to rapid changes, disruptive technologies, and shifting customer demands. The ability to pivot and transform has become essential for survival and growth. However, without the right knowledge and strategies, many businesses struggle to pivot effectively and miss out on valuable opportunities.

A pivot, or pivoting, is a primary method for moving a business in a new direction. In effect, it is a strategic reorientation, which usually entails:

Repositioning the direction, aims and goals of the business or organisation.

Creating and testing a new direction which is fundamentally different from the original one.

Strategically realigning the business or organisation with current market forces and needs.

Reorganising structures, systems, production, procedures etc.

Our research briefing gives you all the latest research from around the world on factors that contribute to a successful pivot, organisational attributes such as strategic planning issues, developing adaptive space, open innovation etc, organisational resilience, human attributes, environmental attributes and problems with pivots.

Don't just take our word for it:

By leveraging the recommendations, we were able to pivot our business successfully, capitalise on emerging opportunities, and drive remarkable growth.
