I get the feeling the managers are being beaten for FASTER RESULTS and they cut a lot of corners as a result. Getting the job done? Yes. Getting it done properly? No. A lesson we in the West have learnt well, but seem to forget when we have to compete with the Chinese. There's a reason for all those meetings and conservatism and it's not laziness.

They may cut corners but one thing is for sure, those that matter show growth rates and an avid interest in achieving this through acquisition if needs be. Do not be surprised by the size or level of activity in the next decade.

And yes, there are too many UK based businesses engaged in meetings about meetings and other meetings. You can't wipe your bum sometimes without getting clearance.
