The smart, savvy and fast growing businesses are focused on setting up their people to get on with being clever; managing through the sheer pace of change; staying ahead of the market with new ideas; and attracting and keeping the brightest sparks.  So the question then becomes – how to navigate all of this as smoothly and productively as possible… and make great money?
