The ready business Logo

The Background

Industry analyst company Freeform Dynamics interviewed more than 1,000 business and IT decision-makers from small, medium and large business in ten countries and six market sectors. An additional 100 interviews were conducted with large MNCs in the UK, Germany and the US. Decision makers were asked key questions regarding how ready their business is for the future.

We have used the result to enable us to address these critical issues:

  • How ready are businesses today and how does readiness differ by organisation size, location and industry sector?
  • To what extent is current business correlated with readiness?
  • What lessons can be learned by looking at the attitudes and behaviours of the most ready business compared with the less ready?
