Testing times usually result in typical behavior by commercial entities: the planning horizon shrinks and recedes into the short-term (you can call it firefighting) while most of the long-term concerns take a comfortable backseat. Thus, questions of ‘what about next month or the next quarter’, take a definitive precedence over holistic questions like ‘where should we be in the next five years’; and, similar other issues that have long-term implications. One of these pertains to Business sustainability: “What are our long-term business risks and what do we need to do ‘now’ so as to continue to deliver stakeholder value in the medium-/long-terms?”
The 5th edition of Green Manufacturing Excellence Awards (GMEA) continues to catalyze such introspective thought processes in organizations. This transformational process has made a definite difference to most of its participants over the last 5 years. And it is Time to Introspect… Time to think long-term! Time to get going, yet again!
