Management in times of Economic Crisis:

The current financial and economic crisis created new set of challenges for businesses across the world. Dealing with strategic and tactical operations today imposes a new management model and a new array of rules and imperatives. While some companies choose to reduce their expenses, cut cost on R&D; and other functions and carry on with their activities in the traditional way, others are keen on exploring new opportunities, new markets and new ideas.

As rightly put by A. Einstein: "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results", we believe that successful business in times of crises are the ones that identify the opportunities generated by the current situation, devise creative plans to benefit from those opportunities and apply innovation in executing on those plans.
