--------------

'One of the key attributes in running a business successfully is the ability to see a situation in perspective.  Too often the real issues go unrecognised, signs are misread, an opportunity slips by, the wrong problem is addressed. Only in retrospect is it obvious what should have been done.

It is not easy, but the tools and techniques covered in Key Business Solutions should help.’

Sir George Cox, Author of the HM Treasury Cox Review of Creativity in UK Business and former Chairman of the Design Council
