One phrase rarely uttered in C-suites is the “medium-term.” Executives commonly discuss the past, the short-term outlook for the next quarter, or the long-term vision of the future. While managers focus on short-term results and leaders evangelize about the long-term, the medium-term—where companies are shaped—is all but forgotten.
In this on-demand Harvard Business Review webinar, Dominic Houlder and Nandu Nandkishore of the London Business School describe why the medium-term of six to eighteen months is so critical to a company’s success and share examples of where focusing on the medium-term made all the difference.
In this webinar, they examine:
- Why the medium-term is so often overlooked and ignored
- The problems that arise when failing to focus on the medium-term
- Why the private equity industry and family-run businesses thrive by focusing on the medium-term
If your company has a clear long-term vision and managers who have laser focus on achieving next quarter’s results but lack a medium-term plan, watch this webinar now.
Dominic Houlder is an Adjunct Professor of Strategic and International Management at London Business School.
Nandu Nandkishore is an Executive Fellow at London Business School. Previously he was an executive board director of Nestlé S.A.
