ASI Webinar: Business Strategies for Indexers
with Sergey Lobachev
Running an indexing business is a challenging task. The path to success depends on various factors, including effective marketing, strong customer relations, sound project management, thoughtful organization of the office space, and responsible financial management. All those factors, however, should align with a unique business strategy and a set of actions that helps your company to stay competitive in a constantly changing environment. Business strategies are equally important for big corporations and for small enterprises, for new and for established companies.
This webinar provides an introduction into the concept of business strategy, explains its relevance to the indexing profession, outlines the stages of development and implementation of business strategy, and explains why strategic thinking is important to the overall success of your business.
