I believe that there’s always a better way for a business to effectively meet the needs of its customers whilst simultaneously balancing the financial imperative for a competitive cost structure. Of particular importance in the current business environment, we must ensure that investment is focussed to the areas of most importance and strip out those practices which do not produce business or customer value. In the words of Peter Drucker, ‘there is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all’.
