The EY 7 Drivers of Growth

  • Share

This driver has a broad remit, covering all the fundamental business challenges a growing company faces, across recruiting the best people, policies, procedures and compliance as well as stakeholder management.

To succeed in today’s fast-moving climate, senior executives must have a strategic approach to risk management. Regardless of a company’s stage of growth, the ability to identify and manage risk stands out as a vital element of success.

Companies that wish to become market leaders should not fear risk. They should approach it intelligently to reap its rewards and accelerate their growth.

Leading businesses encounter risks, but they educate themselves about the implications of risk and the steps they need to take to control and manage them. And this approach sets them apart from the crowd.
