According to Leonid Melamed, “The time of uncertainty is exactly the time when management should make important decisions both tactical and strategical that are usually postponed in other times or at least realized in a milder way. This is the right time to allocate internal resources aimed to ensure competitive advantages and to cut down the resources spent on the products, processes and areas that do not bring any competitive value in tactical viewpoint. Such periods are the time to reallocate strategic investments in something that will provide competitive value in 3 to 5 years when stability will come in place of uncertainty. Business model also must be changed, if necessary.

In other words, hard times create a welcomed opportunity for drastic changes that were difficult to realize under regular circumstances.”

In hard times, each business unit of the company is a key point. Such circumstances act as a rich soil to grow brilliant ideas and define the company’s future development. And only highly coordinated operation of all business units may lead the company to a success.

The Vedomosti’s FocusForum Conference will take place June 25, 2015, and bring together various experts who will share their ideas and valuable experience and try to identify an action plan for the future. General Managers, Heads of Business Development, HR, Marketing, Advertising and PR will introduce their business cases and strategies during panel discussions, presentations and unofficial personal meetings.
