Design/methodology/approach – This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context.

Practical implications – Provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world’s leading organizations.
Originality/value – The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.
