Elastic Enterprise

Enterprises can no longer afford to be large mammoth tankers that only marginally change course when the captain steers the rudder in a different direction. In today’s global and fast changing economy only the most nimble and agile enterprise will prove to be the fittest survivor.

In a quest for increased profitability and efficiency, the outsourcing and offshoring of non-core competencies to geographic areas with high-skilled and low-cost labour availability have become increasingly popular.
