What is your FM’s favorite growth matrix? Or what is your north pole where your corporate team spends most of their efforts and time to stabilize it or rather strengthen it further?  

Is it the 

-Number of active clients you are serving (YoY growth)
-Annual revenue or profit (YoY growth)
-The area under management (likely for Commercial clients)
-Diverse solution portfolio (A to z of FM)
 
Before you would like to answer it I want to share something interesting with you. 

We all have seen how pandemic has exploded growth opportunities to many industries. E-commerce, EduTech, Entertainment (OTT), ITeS and Direct to consumer (D2C) brands have seen double-digit growth in just 6-8 months. Amazon’s net income grew by 3X to $8.1 billion in the first three months of 2021 while small-scale Brands like sugar, Upakarma, Super smelly are now making incumbent players HUL, ITC run for their money.

There are a couple of reasons why some sectors enjoyed the changing business landscape but within the same sector, very few were able to show a hockey stick graph while their competitors were struggling to deliver single-digit revenue growth. Wonder what leaders did differently than the laggers? 

Realizing the Opportunity Acting upon the Opportunity at the right time.  

More than anything else agile decision-making has made the difference. While everyone tried to anticipate the after-effects of lockdown, few of them actually started devising a plan to mitigate the situation and emerge victoriously. It is the quick decision-making and implementation mechanisms that differentiated them from the rest. We aspire to facilitate our readers with market insights and success stories to keep them on the edge of their game all the time.

We are initiating this series of quarterly updates on respective areas that are critical to FM’s growth. It will be a list of top pick stories and blogs post around the world of FM.
