Organisations and managers are under pressure to plan for the short-term in order to survive the financial crisis, but there is a need to plan for the long-term too. The Management Agenda 2009 shows that leadership development is still the most common strategy for the future. Other enduring strategies include talent management, building strategic alliances and focusing on project management. This research finds strategic and financial success to be clearly related to how well organisations manage change, the quality of their leadership and the extent to which there is collective purpose among their staff. Employee engagement in their work, performance management, and learning and development also play important roles.
