With globalization shifting, the economy is becoming increasingly volatile, and businesses are struggling to make a profit amid inflation and rising labor costs. How can you optimize your processes to adapt to these changes?
Karl Maier maintains that economic evolution is the most powerful asset for small companies since they can adapt effectively. He advises leveraging these opportunities by analyzing your sales processes, data, and profit sources.
