Киев, Украина – Вы часто встречали компании с полным набором топов — с коммерческим, финансовым и исполнительным директором? Чтобы на каждый поток по бизнес-лидеру. Собственнику остается только лишь отслеживать, как меняется прибыль его компании, цвет напитка в бокале и высота океанской волны за окном.

Почему так происходит и к чему это приводит Leadership Journey узнал у Владимира Коломойца, руководителя украинского офиса компании Pedersen&Partners.Read more

Most importantly, does the strategy exist only on paper, or is there clear follow-up on progress and measured outcomes?Read more
