Is your organization taking advantage of the changing dynamics in your industry, or falling victim to them?  Currencies and commodities fluctuate. Old rivals compete for your market share. New players seek to dominate the market.  And yet shareholders still expect growth and profitability.  How is your organization responding to the changing dynamics in your industry?
